An Analysis of Antibiotic Prescribing in Urgent Care

Back

The Pew Charitable Trusts and the CDC released a study in 2018 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and found that when it comes to prescribing inappropriate antibiotics, urgent care is the biggest offender. We analyzed our own data to dig a little deeper looking for additional meaningful insight.

In this issue we explore:

  • Antibiotic prescription trends in urgent care from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018
  • Antibiotic prescriptions based on upper respiratory conditions
  • How on-demand clinics can decrease inappropriate antibiotic prescriptions
