MedMined Infection Surveillance System

MedMined is designed to support infection control efforts by helping clinical staff detect and track hospitalized patients with significant contagious infections. Preventing the spread of any infection within the hospital dominates every aspect of patient care

From the hospital’s lab results and patient data, MedMined is used to filter out patterns of hospital-borne infections and antibiotic resistance. Continuous surveillance, investigations into unusual patterns identified by MedMined, and aggressive prevention programs not only serve as the first line of defense for controlling hospital infections, but also help reduce risk for all patients.

Hospital-acquired infections have a direct impact on the quality of care a hospital provides and, by extension, on the hospital's accreditation. Each hospital-acquired infection is an unexpected outcome. MedMined provides the infection control staff with necessary tools and methods to improve patient safety.
