How Well Does Your Hospital Treat Bloodstream Infections?

Why Improving BSI Performance Benefits Your Patients and Your Bottom Line

As the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to transform from a passive payer to an active purchaser of higher-value health care services, hospitals need to adopt programs and strategies to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs. Rapid diagnostics and quality antimicrobial stewardship can not only improve performance and reduce costs, it can improve patient outcomes. AdvanDx empowers  physicians by providing better clinical information for targeted therapy or discontinuation of expensive and unnecessary antibiotic use that can lead to adverse events or antimicrobial resistance.
