"MedMined® Surveillance Advisor alerts us right away when the patient has a culture with an organism that is resistant to the drug they are on. We can also identify patients with possible infections that potentially need anti-infective therapy that hasn't been ordered yet and facilitate getting patients treated more quickly."
