Lastly, different approaches to displaying antibiotic use data will be described and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Healthcare Safety Network Antibiotic Use and Resistance Option will be explained, with an example of how this data has been utilized in dashboard form within an integrated healthcare network.
