Infectious Disease Consultation
Board-certified infectious disease specialists are available to diagnose, treat and manage patients with difficult, unusual, or complicated bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic infections, such as meningitis, sepsis, complicated urinary tract infection, pneumonia, cellulitis and abscess, surgical site infections, osteomyelitis, prosthetic joint infections, transplant infections, and HIV. Our infectious disease program decreases unnecessary transfers, increases census, and supports local physicians to manage a higher complexity of disease.
Our telemedicine antibiotic stewardship program can be implemented in all hospitals, even those without in-house or on-site infectious disease specialists. These programs:
- Reduce hospital pharmacy expenditures related to antibiotic prescriptions – the number one spend in hospital pharmacy.
- Achieve clinical excellence goals of reducing both antibiotic overuse and antibiotic resistance and financial goals of reducing costs.
