COST OF URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
COST FOR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
UTIs are responsible for
office visits per year11 and are also the reason for
ER visits per year 12
leading cause of hospitalization for Medicare patients with
of people with UTIs are admitted to the hospital, and of those
have a readmission within 30 days14
COST TO HUMANITY
Up to 1/3 of infections illustrate resistance to an antibiotic15
According to the CDC, antibiotic resistance gives rise to at least
2 million infections
BYPASS CHALLENGES AND ARRIVE AT SOLUTIONS QUICKLY
Traditional urine culture misses up to 22% of all UTI-positive patients.1
Guidance UTI detects 33% more organisms than culture, covering the most relevant causes of UTIs for a more accurate diagnosis.
Genotype testing alone only reports on the genetic potential to develop resistance to antibiotics, which is not enough information to guide effective treatment.
Guidance UTI is the only test that goes beyond genotype testing by including patented Pooled Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (P-AST)™. It determines treatments that will be effective against the pool of organisms as they grow and interact in the presence of antibiotics.
Delayed personalized treatment happens consistently with traditional culture methods taking up to three days or more to return results.
Guidance UTI delivers results within 48 hours of a sample reaching the lab, for fast, personalized treatment that advances patient outcomes and antibiotic stewardship.
