Originally Presented on June 1, 2022: Live from Industry: A “Triple Aim” Case Study: A Systematic Approach for Diagnostic and Antimicrobial Stewardship
By registering to this webinar you are agreeing to be contacted by APIC industry partner: Magnolia Medical Technologies
WVU Medicine, the largest health system in West Virginia, recognized the detrimental impact of false-positive blood cultures on patient safety and quality outcomes. The collaborative focus of system-wide quality leaders was to reduce and sustain blood culture rates below 3%, with a visionary goal to be 1% or less in support of its diagnostic, antimicrobial, and financial stewardship objectives. One hospital, United Hospital Center, piloted multiple concerted practices before achieving success with an approach that combined culture change, value analysis, and evidence-based practices and technologies.
Join this webinar to learn about their compelling journey to elevate the standard of care for their patients, the unique “triple aim” approach that has achieved >80% compliance with new practices over a sustained period of time, and the clinical and economic value they delivered by reducing blood culture contamination by 81% hospital wide.
