Antimicrobial stewardship through telemedicine in a community hospital in southern Brazil. Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, 2013..

In a study published by Qualis in the English journal, Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare, in February 2013, there was an improvement in antimicrobial adequacy rate after the implementation of the Qualis Program for Infection control and Antimicrobial stewardship.

The rate of antimicrobial prescription adequacy increase from 30% to 60%,  in a community hospital in Porto Lucena, 575 km away from Qualis.
