Variation in antibiotic resistance patterns for children and adults treated at 166 non-affiliated US facilities using EHR data
Antibiotic resistance (AR) is a global public health threat. Surveillance of baseline AR and trends and emerging resistance among priority bacterial isolates with respect to the age of the patients and the type of healthcare setting are required due to differences in antimicrobial need and use in these populations.
Large-scale analysis of EHR data from 166 facilities shows that AR patterns for some bug-drug combinations vary by care setting and patient age. We describe novel data visualizations to interpret large-scale EHR data on the prevalence and trends of AR that should influence antimicrobial prescribing and antimicrobial stewardship programme interventions.
