Antibiotic Stewardship

Antibiotic resistance causes 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths each year in the U.S.

Overuse and misuse of antibiotics has led to a global health crisis.

OVERVIEW

Telligen is offering no-cost help to implement antibiotic stewardship in outpatient settings for those who join us by July 31, 2017. Telligen aligns our services with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Core Elements of Outpatient Antibiotic Stewardship to help you develop your own outpatient antibiotic stewardship program.

This initiative is tailored to healthcare providers who work in outpatient settings, such as:

  • Physician offices
  • Emergency rooms
  • Urgency Care Clinics
  • Rural Health Clinics
  • Federally Qualified Health Centers
  • Pharmacies

Join today – Clinicians and practices may join the Telligen Outpatient Stewardship Care Collaborative through July 2017.
