MEDITECH’s EHR Helps Hospitals Target and Prevent CAUTIs


MEDITECH’s Lead Physician Informaticist, Steven Jones, MD, states that according to the CDC, more than 560,000 U.S. patients are affected by urinary tract infections caused by the insertion of a catheter in the urinary tract each year.

In response, MEDITECH launched a comprehensive implementation toolkit that includes best practice workflows and instructions to help hospitals reduce and prevent Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs).

“Due to its high cost and prevalence, reducing CAUTI rates has become a national priority,” says Dr. Jones.
