Abstract:

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) surveillance is labor intensive, generally involving manual medical record review. We developed a prototype automated report through iterative design. Surveys and qualitative interviews were administered to key stakeholders to assess the report design. We found that different provider types expressed different needs regarding report content and format. Therefore, determining the primary audience for reporting data on CAUTI a priori is critical to developing useful reports, particularly as this process becomes standardized and automated.
