UCSF Innovators Use EHRs to Track Hospital-Acquired Infection

A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine conducted by the UCSF Health Informatics team analyzes the movements of 85,000 hospitalized patients seen over three years by mapping EHR patient location and timestamp data. This information was then compared with hospital acquired infection data in hopes of uncovering unknown transmission hotspots within the hospital. The team did identify that patients who entered a particular CT scanner used in the Emergency Department were more than twice as likely to become infected with C. Diff than the baseline patient population. As a result, ED staff were re-trained on how to properly sanitize the scanner.
