Hospital acquired infection is a big problem for hospitals because it harms patients and because hospitals must cover the costs associated with treating infections acquired in the hospital. Infection can be spread due to poor hand hygiene by staff, dirty rooms, or poor isolation practices. Finding infection sources in data is very hard. We modeled the hospital stay to help identify areas for improvement.

We piloted a graph database to model the spread of hospital acquired infection and care team interactions. This talk will discuss some lessons learned and best practices.
