IPCWell is devoted to mitigating infectious diseases and inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in all healthcare settings to reduce adverse events, infections, antibiotic resistance, re-admissions, and death. With human-centred design and new technology, healthcare is rapidly approaching a new horizon that is very promising, but even the brightest minds, cutting edge innovation, and beautiful new models of care will be rendered ineffective if the fundamentals of infection prevention are not firmly in place.
IPCWell is built of a dynamic team of professionals who share the vision and passion in achieving these goals.
Through the COVID-19 pandemic, IPCWell has been called to action collaborating with many national and international public health organizations such as providing boots on the ground training and support to Doctors Without Borders in Houston, Texas and Detroit, Michigan. We have provided Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) subject matter expertise with qualitative research studies, subject matter expertise to the National Nursing Home Association by presenting webinars, boots on the ground support for CMS Quality Improvement Networks-Quality Improvement Organizations (QIO’s) to nursing homes hard hit with COVID-19, and supporting the Arizona Emergency Preparedness Infection Control (EPIC) Disaster Ready grant. We are the Epidemiologist for under-represented and underserved populations such as Native American Tribes keeping their communities COVID-19 free.
