Do lab processes really help patient care? Dr. Vincent J. LaBombardi and his microbiology team at New York’s Mount Sinai Medical Center answer a resounding YES in this paper on how to maximize the use of bioMérieux’s VITEK® 2 system via its Advanced Expert System™.
Download the full paper and see how they:
- Customized their VITEK® 2 to flag certain complicated or questionable susceptibility results to enable them to perform further tests – and catch unusual resistance patterns
- Improved susceptibility reporting workflow with customization, automation and preferences – getting data to clinicians faster
- Use auto-posting (i.e. automatic release of preliminary results when the susceptibility result is consistent with the organism identiﬁcation) to enable reporting hours – even days – faster
- Use the VITEK® 2 colour indicators to review results more easily and rapidly
