Abstract: Identifying emerging patterns of antibiotic resistance in priority pathogens is necessary as it allows providers to tailor antibiotic therapy. This study using aggregate electronic health record data found significant differences in resistance patterns in nine priority pathogens between children (189,516 encounters; 160 facilities) and adults (1.5 million encounters; 167 facilities) as well as in eight pathogens from children treated at stand-alone pediatric (72,494 encounters; 10 facilities) and blended facilities (117,018 encounters; 150 facilities).

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: This study identifies antimicrobial susceptibility trends of 20 priority pathogens among the pediatric patient population and the health care setting. Attendees can expect to (1) be informed of the insights from this study to generate a multidisciplinary pediatric-focused Antibiotic Stewardship Program (ASP) to improve health care quality, (2) improve outcomes by helping clinicians determine how to apply newer diagnostic modalities and therapeutic options (3) understand how aggregate electronic health record (EHR) data can be used to analyze and generate antimicrobial susceptibility trends specific to pediatric patients categorized between pediatric and blended facilities.
