For Infectious Diseases and Infection Prevention and Control 

IDEM is transformational in distinguishing closely related strains and transmission routes in healthcare systems and a beneficial resource preventing the emergence of antibiotic resistant and hypervirulent strains.​

Proactive surveillance

bacteria pathogen surveillance using wgs analysis

IDEM enables proactive genomic-based surveillance of HAIs to reduce the burden of colonizations, infections and avoidable deaths whilst optimizing the use of hospital resources.

Based on our in-house economic analysis of a WGS intervention for HAIs, cost savings would exceed £7 for every £1 invested and $18 for every $1 in WGS in the NHS in England, and the USA, respectively.
