BD has helped our quality control and infection prevention teams by equipping us with valuable information to make a real difference in patient care. Utilizing data and analytics provided by BD, we’ve made a significant reduction in healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and are improving medication stewardship awareness throughout our facility.

BD has been essential to our medication stewardship initiatives at Ohio Valley Hospital. Its ability to build customized alerts, efficiently pull data, and impressive workflow functionality has been instrumental to providing our clinical pharmacists with the data they need to make alternative therapy recommendations. Our stewardship programs are successful because of the powerful features of BD combined with a well-trained and engaged pharmacy team and infectious disease physician champion.
Director of Pharmacy, Ohio Valley Hospital
Implementing BD allows me to get back to what I love to do: making a positive impact toward the reduction of HAIs and preventing infection. Before implementing BD, I spent more than a day drowning in administrative manual processes for classifying HAIs and preparing and submitting reports to the NHSN each month. Now that our surveillance and reporting initiatives are automated, I spend half that time on reporting initiatives, allowing me to spend more time on the floor with my peers to make a positive impact on patient care.
