Description

Utilizing our present EHR system, we built our own in-house Antimicrobial Stewardship Program to meet all federal, state, CDC and Joint Commission guidelines and mandates. We moved from a time-consuming paper-based system taking hours with incomplete tasks to now completing mandated antibiotic rules on all patients in less than 4 hours. We did this through the creation of custom health issues to develop advanced patient lists and searches for specific criteria of antibiotic use. Advanced patient list consists of antibiotic review of all patients after 48 hours, 7 days and 3 or more antibiotics plus a notification for IV to PO conversion. We optimized and automated these functions with a series of custom MLMs, informational columns and an easy to read clinical summary view. The end product allowed pharmacists to complete antimicrobial review of all patients, increased pharmacists interventions by 48% and decrease our most common antimicrobial usage by 20%.
