Next-Level Infection Prevention

We understand the unique needs of each facility when it comes to the ever-evolving challenge
of maintaining a highly reliable Infection Prevention and Control Program. Your organization may
have a plan for reducing infections in your facility, but it can be challenging to maintain a highly
reliable Infection Prevention Program.

nodMD can help you create a proactive plan to prevent infections and control outbreaks. 

How nodMD’s Infection Prevention Is Different

We are here to help – not to lecture.  Although infection prevention is very important, we also know that your days are busy and it’s hard to accomplish every top priority. nodMD’s highly experienced, certified infection prevention and control (CIC) practitioners collaborate with your team and tailor infection prevention and control services to meet your facility’s specific needs. Our clients noted several benefits by teaming up with nodMD, such as:

  • Consistency: As facility IP personnel change, nodMD provides consistent and continuous guidance.  
  • Subject Matter Experts: While facility IP staff have multiple responsibilities, IP is all we do. We are experts on regulations, safety protocols, infection trends and standards. We get to answers quickly and efficiently
  • Change Agent: nodMD helps offset the notion of “we’ve done it like this for decades.” We establish metrics and compare against industry standards.
  • Physician Oversight: Board-certified infectious disease physicians guide nodMD’s IP programs and offer additional infection prevention and control guidance, such as Antimicrobial Stewardship services and Infectious Disease virtual support for gaps in care.
  • Communication: We help facilitate regular meetings and bring departments together.
  • More than a Checklist: nodMD does not simply provide an itemized checklist for you to fill out, but works alongside your team to identify potential risks and opportunities for improvement. Our approach is rooted in IPC regulatory guidance, based on evidence and tailored to your facility.
  • Digital Health: nodMD has a digital health platform for HIPAA-compliant telemedicine consults.
  • Savings: We have low overhead and greater flexibility to adjust to a facility’s IP needs, and leverage digital health technology to lower overall IPC costs. Clients recoup our fees when their organization’s HAIs are reduced by 2 cases.

Now more than ever, infection prevention and control is key to facility success. Your internal team has done great work so far, but they face new, complex challenges every day. nodMD can lift your infection prevention efforts to-date from OK results to exceptional results.
