The Use of Automation in Infection Prevention & Control Programs: Time-Saving Strategies for Early Detection & Reporting

February 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

As we continue to see outbreaks related to COVID–19 and infection control deficiencies remain among the most frequently cited, the need to improve our Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) programs remain crucial. Recently updated guidance by CMS highlights the focus on Antibiotic Stewardship programs and the signifying role of Infection Preventionists (IP). With clinical teams stretched beyond their limits, successful facilities are leaning on technology to automate their IPC efforts, analyze evolving symptomatology, and reduce overall antibiotic resistance cases.

Preventing the spread of infectious disease through early detection is key to any IPC program. During this presentation, attendees will explore how technology can support a clinician’s efforts of active infection prevention surveillance by utilizing live EHR data to highlight changes in condition and alert to early signs and symptoms of potential infection. There will also be a discussion on how, through technology, IP’s can leverage live data analytics to assist in improving resident outcomes, strengthen IPC programs, and better prepare and improve survey outcomes, while reducing the risk of hospitalizations related to healthcare associated infections (HAIs).
