About a year ago Pharmacy OneSource released a complimentary Antimicrobial Stewardship Gap Analysis to help healthcare organizations evaluate their current processes and benchmark against industry best practices.
Initial responses from 151 U.S.-based acute care facilities highlighted that the industry has a long way to go in terms of maturing ASPs. Even hospitals that believed their programs were sophisticated scored between 30 percent and 60 percent compliant.
