Antimicrobial Stewardship

The HealthInsight HIIN will work to further enhance the hospital leadership focus on antibiotic stewardship using Project ECHO and other approaches. Across our region, we will rely on some of our best thought leaders to guide us on how to embed this health policy issue into the operations of all hospitals and clinical practices.

HealthInsight will tailor ECHO learning sessions and technical assistance in accordance with the best practices set forth in “Get Smart for Health Care” that will focus on preventing the misuse of antibiotics, appropriate infection control measures and data reporting. Again using “Get Smart” as the core, the HealthInsight HIIN will identify and disseminate best practices for educating patients and their families about appropriate antibiotic use and infection control measures in health care settings.
