  • Description:
    Local antibiotic resistance prevention collaborative: Healthcare facilities will form Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Prevention Collaboratives, working together to implement best practices for inpatient antibiotic prescribing and preventing infections. By consistently alerting other facilities when transferring a patient, they will be able to reduce spread of resistant infections between separate facilities.

    Facilities in the AR Collaborative report AR findings to the State Department of Public Health.

    Facilities in the AR Collaborative send samples to the AR Regional Lab for confirmation and characterization.

    Lab data from the AR Regional Lab will be used by the State to identify outbreaks, track resistance, and detect new resistance.
