Led by an infectious disease physician, our multidisciplinary ASP team incorporates site visits, program management, education, evidence-based clinical transformation processes, data analysis, and ongoing monitoring to promote precision prescribing. We educate physicians, pharmacists, and others to thrive in a population health environment. Our program prepares hospitals, critical access hospitals, and long-term care facilities for new Joint Commission and CMS antibiotic stewardship standards. PYA has also just released a new online tool. If a hospital inputs their annual antibiotic spend and uploads their antibiogram to our new online tool, our ASP team can provide an Antibiotic Savings Analysis.
