Regional Antibiogram

Creating a snapshot of antimicrobial resistance across the region, NYC DOHMH and Firstline have amalgamated data from participating NYC institutions to create a city-wide and borough-specific resource that is freely accessible via Firstline to all providers.

Outpatient Prescribing Guidance

NYC DOHMH has developed outpatient prescribing guidance informed by locally relevant and actionable epidemiological data derived from the regional antibiogram. This strategic approach ensures that the antibiogram data is useful and relevant for all healthcare providers in New York, so the entire healthcare community can benefit from the collaborative effort and data shared by participating hospitals.
