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.


An effective ASP promotes precision prescribing:

  • Total antibiotic inventory and spending reduced by 10-40%
  • Reduces Clostridium difficile incidence and expense
  • Improves HAC scores and mitigates reimbursement penalties
  • Leads to decreased litigation risk
  • Improves patient safety and quality of care
  • Preserves, and over time, improves the effectiveness of first-line antibiotics
  • Improves Hospital Compare rankings
  • Provides a foundation for public awareness campaigns
  • Contributes to achievement of Triple Aim objectives
