To create local antibiotic resistance surveillance system using the AMRcloud online platform to provide evidence base for activity of antimicrobials (AM) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) epidemiology.
This study was conducted at the Pirogov National Medical and Surgical Center (Moscow, Russia). The study is prospective, with two evaluations of the local AMR surveillance system (before and after the implementation of the AMRcloud online platform). Separately, the effects of implementing the AMRcloud platform were evaluated and the most frequent scenarios of using this system in hospital were studied.
With the help of the AMRcloud platform, which acts as one of the central links in the AMR surveillance process, a local AMR surveillance system was formed, providing continuity of historical data and evidence base on local AMR epidemiology with real-time access and bringing together specialists of various profiles.
Implementation of the AMRcloud online platform into multidisciplinary hospital operations enables the creation of a local evidence base on AM activity and AMR epidemiology, as well as reducing the labor costs of several crucial stages of AMR surveillance – data storage, analysis and exchange.
