The LCKMGMA Managed Care Committee is hosting Practice Management Discussion Forums for Active Members (Practice Managers) of the LCKMGMA to discuss current issues/trends affecting medical practices.
This month we will have a guest speaker from Qsource discussing Antibiotic Stewardship
"Antibiotics are among the most commonly prescribed drugs and save millions of lives each year. However, widespread, long-term use has led to an alarming rise in antibiotic-resistant bacteria that, in the U.S. alone, cause 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths each year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization have declared antibiotic resistance to be one of the most serious national and global health problems (PAC)."
Please join the LCKMGMA Practice Manager Discussion Forum on May 10 from 8:00 to 9:00am EST to hear Mary Bardin, Quality Improvement Advisor for Qsource, present on the topic of Antibiotic Stewardship. She will be providing an overview on antibiotic use, the CDC's Four Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship, and assistance available to outpatient providers in combatting antibiotic-resistant bacteria and improving patient outcomes. This assistance is aligned with a national CMS focus undertaken by each state's Quality Improvement Organization.
