Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol. 2014 Jul;35(7):891-3. doi: 10.1086/676870. Epub 2014 May 15.


We surveyed hospital epidemiologists and infection preventionists on their usage of and satisfaction with infection prevention-specific software supplementing their institution's electronic medical record. Respondents with supplemental software were more satisfied with their software's infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship capabilities than those without. Infection preventionists were more satisfied than hospital epidemiologists.
