This document is intended for hospital staff that use HelicsWin.Net to collect or administer data collected during the ECDC Point Prevalence Survey (PPS) of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and antimicrobial use (AMU) in acute care hospitals. This document describes the HelicsWin.Net v1.3.8 user interface, and provides users with step-by-step instructions in its use, and conceptual information about data storage. This manual supersedes manual version 1.3. Both are available on ECDC’s HELICSWin.Net (HWN) webpage.

For the 2016-2017 point prevalence surveys in long-term care facilities (the HALT-3 Project), this protocol has been superseded by the protocol for point prevalence surveys of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in European long-term care facilities Version 2.1
