Stewardship for the 21st Century

Teqqa improves the efficiency and effectiveness of the antibiotic stewardship team.

Teqqa puts team members at the hub of all stewardship activities, enhancing prospective audit with feedback to providers as well as prior authorization of select antibiotic agents. Our tools, available both in browsers and on smartphones, allow clinicians to receive and act on the critical data they want without interrupting their workflow. Teqqa provides timely information whenever the stewardship team needs it, all in a searchable and sortable format.

New rapid diagnostic tests for infectious agents are quite the rage, offering the potential for an earlier correct diagnosis and optimal treatment. However, as the literature on their use uniformly asserts, it's not all about the lab. Rather, without an information infrastructure to get those results quickly back to a clinician, a clinician who will make a timely change in therapy based on those results, the advantage is completely lost by the hot results waiting for next morning's routine rounds.

To reap the benefits of your new rapid diagnostic testing you'll need to make changes to your procedures, policies, information technologies and clinical decision support. With a deep understanding of infectious diseases, their therapies, and hospital information systems, we can help you make the most of your new investment.


“THE TEQQA APPS ARE NOW ENGRAINED IN OUR ANTIMICROBIAL STEWARDSHIP PROCESS, PROVIDING US WITH QUICK ACCESS TO DATA AND RESISTANCE PATTERNS TO INFORM OUR PHYSICIANS’ PRESCRIBING DECISIONS. IT IS NOW A PART OF HOW WE DELIVER TOP PATIENT CARE.”
— Keith Hamilton, M.D., Associate Healthcare Epidemiologist and Director of Antimicrobial Stewardship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania

 

Antibiotic Stewardship for Everyone

The path to improving population health at your institution begins with each individual patient care decision. Clinical Decision Support (CDS) in Teqqa puts information and clinical context directly into the hands of those who need to act on it. By combining patient-specific factors with local microbiology and clinical guidelines, Teqqa delivers CDS directly to point-of-care providers as well as antibiotic stewardship teams for better prescribing. Teqqa builds the key relationships between prescribers and stewardship teams for optimized multi-disciplinary care. We connect clinicians with easy communication, more than just texts, to share real, actionable information and document care plans. With such information sharing, Teqqa strengthens the partnership between stewardship team and point-of-care providers, ensuring patients receive the best possible therapy at the time of decision making, rather than catch-and-correct practices.


Focus, Measure, and Evaluate

Analytics within Teqqa are focused on the real needs of Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs. Our aAnalytics are designed for stewardship teams to focus, measure, and evaluate with timely and accessible data. Our analytics are interactive, letting you hone in to uncover root causes. Begin with trends over time for resistance rates or antibiotic use, then focus to specific hotspots with granularity. These are analytics for discovery and learning so that you can target and modify stewardship interventions. With Teqqa you can easily measure the impact of stewardship activities. Drive accountability with associations between individual provider decisions with and process and patient outcomes.
