Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) are of increasing concern to patient safety. Monitoring multidrug resistant organisms (MDROs) and the infections they cause in the healthcare setting is important in detecting new emerging antimicrobial resistance profiles, to identify vulnerable patient populations, and to assess the need for and effectiveness of infection control interventions.
The Clinical Epidemiology Division within the EpiData Center Department has years of expertise in the use of Health Level 7 data for the surveillance of HAIs. The Navy Antimicrobial Surveillance System (NASS) is used for easy identification of emerging infectious organisms, and rapid characterization of drug resistance in the healthcare setting.
