Strengthening IPC Regulations & Antibiotic Surveillance through Post-Acute Analytics

Educational Session

August 10 @ 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm EDT

Improving antibiotic usage among SNFs has become a national priority. Learn how automating the tracking and reporting of antibiotic use facility-wide is not only reducing administrative burden, but also identifying the early warning signs of infection and highlighting the need for possible testing to determine the appropriate drug interventions. Explore how operators are leveraging live data analysis to meet state and federal requirements, prepare for regulatory reporting and onsite surveys, and conduct infection surveillance.

Learning Objectives

  • Review and understand CDC Antibiotic Stewardship requirements and understand the challenges of antibiotic resistance in the nursing home setting
  • Describe strategies to improve antibiotic use and lower antibiotic resistance as well as unnecessary adverse drug interactions
  • Explain how live data analysis can strengthen IPC resources to automate IPC efforts, analyze emerging symptomatology, and reduce overall antibiotic-resistance cases
