All hospitals and skilled nursing facilities must have an antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP) as a requirement for accreditation by The Joint Commission (MM.09.01.0), since January 2017. Additionally, several states have also enacted legislation that addresses the crucial need for clinical antimicrobial stewardship policies and procedures.
TeleMed2U pioneered the first telemedicine-based ASP for hospitals and clinics – Improving Antimicrobial Resistance and Patient Safety Together. Our evidence-based programs and improved outcomes have garnered international recognition at medical conferences and in several peer-reviewed journal articles.
