This historic 1977 image depicted a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) public health adviser conducting a meeting in a hospital setting, related to a pilot study known as the Study on the Efficacy of Nosocomial Infection Control (SENIC) Project, which measured the accuracy of a system. SENIC was designed by Robert W. Haley, MD, that detected hospital acquired infections through the analysis of medical records. In this picture, the advisor appeared to be describing to a group of healthcare professionals, the protocols associated with an in-line quality control analysis that compared the duplicate reviews of the same medical records, in order to detect discrepancies. To this day, the SENIC Project is still is the largest national study ever done by CDC, and it established the scientific basis for the infection control programs that are in every hospital in the western world.
