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.
