University of Miami-Jackson Memorial effort would cut antibiotic use

Miami Herald, December 8, 2009

A University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Hospital team is working to improve patient care and cut costs by making sure oft-overused antibiotics are prescribed only when needed. The program serves as a small example of how such evidence-based medicine can provide good care without increasing healthcare costs, which have been going up far faster than the rate of inflation, the Miami Herald reports. The program is building awareness among hospital employees by handing out pocket cards and pushing info on an internal website.
