Infection prevention (IP) programs that depend primarily on paper-based, manual, and retrospective surveillance processes and on reports for aggregation with cross-checking of data to identify high-risk patients and emerging infections will struggle to keep hospitals in line with changing regulations and quality-based payment programs.

This guide showcases how IP programs that leverage electronic surveillance maintain compliance with regulations. With less time devoted to chart review and data cross-checking, infection preventionists can devote more hours to educating staff and implementing interventions, which helps their facility reach their quality goals and protect the bottom line.

In this guide, you will learn:
• The advantages of an IP program supported by electronic surveillance
• The ways electronic surveillance provides critical support to IP programs
• How to improve your outcomes in the face of regulatory and financial pressure
