Sentri7®: Antimicrobial Stewardship

Antimicrobial stewardship is an organizational priority mandated by standards released from The Joint Commission and CMS to address growing concerns over antimicrobial resistance. With reimbursement implications at stake, hospitals and health systems are required to improve outcomes while reducing unnecessary antimicrobial usage and costs.

Sentri7 helps customers quickly improve utilization and demonstrate savings while improving patient outcomes. Targeted functions are designed to monitor and assess antimicrobial use, and provide actionable evidence-based guidance to support proper therapy. Sentri7 can accurately alert on core stewardship strategies like agent selection, de-escalation of initial empiric antimicrobial regimens, surveillance of target antimicrobials, route optimization and optimal dosing.

Sentri7 supports the development of a robust antimicrobial stewardship program by ensuring regulatory compliance, reducing antimicrobial costs and improving patient care.
