2016 Recipient: Baycrest
Antimicrobial Stewardship Analytics – Interprofessional Project Team



The Business & Clinical Informatics team at Baycrest, in collaboration with the Baycrest Pharmacy and Interdisciplinary Antimicrobial Stewardship team, has launched a new “Medication Management & Analytics” online system. This advanced clinical intelligence tool is designed to assist in medication management, analysis, risk reduction, and decision making.

The scope of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) ensures the most appropriate use of antibiotics achieves the best patient outcomes, reduce or stabilize levels of antibiotics resistance, and promote patient safety. At Baycrest, the ASP core team consists of a pharmacist and two physicians, who develop and implement stewardship interventions. Infection prevention and control, and informatics specialists also provide support.
