Micromedex Infection Prevention

Real-Time Clinical Surveillance For Fast Identification, Management, and Prevention of HAIs

Micromedex® Infection Prevention is a real-time clinical surveillance and reporting tool that helps infection prevention staff identify and avoid hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), decrease never events, and improve antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention. 

This powerful tool eliminates manual data review, alerts staff of potential outbreaks, identifies and reports on patients who meet the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) definition of an HAI, and improves prevention efforts.

Libraries of Algorithms for At-Risk Patient Profiling

Infection Prevention contains libraries of algorithms for at-risk patient profiling, including Core Measures and infection prevention. These pre-built clinical rules, or profiles, identify and prevent HAIs, such as central line associated blood stream infection (CLABSI), multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO), surgical site infections (SSI), and more.

Profiles include numerator and denominator data, line lists for high-risk infections, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Clostridium difficile (C-Diff), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), and ventilator-assisted pneumonia (VAP). Your staff can also build and customize profiles based on your specific areas of need.
