Ottawa, ON, March 13, 2023 — Harris, a global vertical market software provider, adds a comprehensive Antimicrobial Stewardship solution with its acquisition of Asolva, Inc.
Asolva’s flagship offering, Medici AUR, is a turnkey, cloud-based software product that can get nearly any hospital up and running with antimicrobial use and resistance (AUR) reporting in a single day. Unlike traditional IT vendor products that are wrapped around costly customization services, Medici AUR comes with pre-made data interfaces for electronic health records. Asolva founder and CEO, Chun Wong, comments, “Antimicrobial resistance is a growing global health crisis, and more than ever, antimicrobial stewardship is a key response. Medici helps overcome the common data interface obstacle, and with Asolva joining Harris, more hospitals will be able to strengthen their antimicrobial stewardship efforts. With Harris’ vast healthcare expertise and market reach, we are excited about the growth opportunities, and we look forward to deepening Medici’s success.”
Asolva’s Medici is the first vendor solution to have passed the Antimicrobial Use (AU) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AR) validations for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) reporting.
Harris Portfolio Leader Santina Allen said, “Asolva is a recognized leader in the fight against antimicrobial resistance, a global public health threat, supporting hospitals throughout the US in driving best practices in antibiotic use. We are excited to be working with Asolva’s team of dedicated professionals to continue to deliver software and healthcare IT services which make a difference.” Asolva joins Harris OnPoint, offering Hospital staffing, Infection control, and Communications solutions to health systems.
