BD MedMined Earns Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification for Antimicrobial Use and Resistance Reporting

Oct 29, 2018

BD MedMined Surveillance Advisor has earned Meaningful Use Stage 3 (MU3) certification validating its ability to collect and properly report data around antimicrobial use and resistance data by facilities enrolled in the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) that requires reporting for Antimicrobial Use and Resistance (AUR) data in 2018.

Public Health Registry Reporting is a new option for MU3, requiring AUR data to help the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to gain a better understanding of how antibiotic usage impacts resistance in hospitals and healthcare facilities. The objective calls for reporting a full calendar year’s data on R1 Normative Antimicrobial Use Summary, Antimicrobial Resistance Event, and Antimicrobial Resistance summary data to be reported using clinical documentation architecture (CDA) formatting.

By submitting AUR data into the NHSN platform, clinicians can benchmark their antibiotic usage and organisms resistance data nationally to target areas for improvement.

By leveraging data from a hospital’s electronic medical record, physician order entry, laboratory and pathology systems to monitor patients for adverse drug events and interactions, BD MedMined can alert clinicians and pharmacists to potential adverse events across the continuum of care.
