Historically, this information is gathered from hospital in-patient data. This app goes beyond the hospital setting and help clinicians identify superbugs in areas their patients live by incorporating lab data from over 15 million patient records sourced from athenahealth¹s cloud-based EHR.
· List of bacteria observed in urine, blood, and skin for geolocated communities across the country
