  1. WHONET DOCUMENTATION AT TRAVANCORE MEDICAL COLLEGE, KOLLAM KERALA, INDIA ProfeDR.T.V.RAO MD 1
  2. WHO GLOBAL STRATEGY ON REDUCING THE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE• The WHO Global Strategy for Containment of Antimicrobial Resistance identifies the establishment and support of microbiology laboratories as a fundamental priority in guiding and assessing intervention efforts. This requires trained and motivated laboratory professionals, materials and equipment, mechanisms for assuring the quality of test performance, and communication with clinicians and public health authorities.DR.T.V.RAO MD 2
  3. WE NEED A SYSTEM AND OPTIMAL DOCUMENTATION OF DRUG RESISTANCE• Surveillance of antimicrobial resistance tracks changes in microbial populations, permits the early detection of resistant strains of public health importance, and supports the prompt notification and investigation of outbreaks. Surveillance findings are needed to inform clinical therapy decisions, to guide policy recommendations, and to assess the impact of resistance containment interventions.DR.T.V.RAO MD 3
  4. WHAT IS WHONET• WHONET is a free software developed by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance for laboratory-based surveillance of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance.• The principal goals of the software are:• 1 to enhance local use of laboratory data; and• 2 to promote national and international collaboration through the exchange of data. DR.T.V.RAO MD 4
  5. HOW THE WHONET HELPS US• The WHONET tools enable any microbiology laboratory to put its test results into a database and conduct analyses to support local infection control and antibiotic use. Laboratories can also upload files created by WHONET, to feed into national or other multi-center surveillance networks and to inform drug policy. Such surveillance programs are now in place in many countries. In supporting these countries we have learned many lessons. Specifically, we have identified some major obstacles to the achievement of global health goals; and in many cases, devised innovations to surmount them.DR.T.V.RAO MD 5
  6. GROWING IMPORTANCE OF WHONET• World over antimicrobial resistance is a major public health problem. The WHONET software program puts each laboratory data into a common code and file format, which can be merged for national or global collaboration of antimicrobial resistance surveillance DR.T.V.RAO MD 6
  7. WHO USES THE WHONET• WHONET can be used by individual laboratories or as part of a national and international surveillance network. At present, the software, available in 17 languages, is used in over 90 countries around the world managing data from over 1000 clinical, public health, veterinary, and food laboratories.DR.T.V.RAO MD 7
  8. WHONET SUPPORTS SURVEILLANCE IN OVER 90 COUNTRIES INDICATED BELOW IN RED.DR.T.V.RAO MD 8
  9. WHONET HELPS US IN ……• The understanding of the local epidemiology of microbial populations; the selection of antimicrobial agents; the identification of hospital and community outbreaks; and the recognition of quality assurance problems in laboratory testing.DR.T.V.RAO MD 9
  10. WHONET A GLOBAL NETWORKING PROGRAMME • WHONET is currently used in over 90 countries, managing data from over 1300 laboratories. • Hospital and public health laboratories • Food and veterinary laboratories • Reference and research laboratories • Data collections • Routine laboratory data • Special surveys and research protocolsDR.T.V.RAO MD 10
  11. INSTITUTIONAL ADVANTAGE OF WHONET The program facilitates sharing of data amongst different hospitals by puttingeach laboratory data into a common codeand file format, which can be merged for national or global collaboration of antimicrobial resistance surveillanceDR.T.V.RAO MD 11
  12. CLINICIANS AND MICROBIOLOGIST CAN DO ANALYSIS OF THE DATA THEMSELVES• WHONET has a user-friendly interface permitting many types of analysis. Options include isolate line-listings and summaries, such as organism frequencies over time, antimicrobial susceptibility test statistics, zone diameter antibiotic scatterplots and regression curves, and antibiotic resistance and MIC histograms, profile line listings and summaries. WHONET also has a number of alert features which permit the detection of unlikely or important results as well as possible community outbreaks of bacterial or non-bacterial species. DR.T.V.RAO MD 12
  13. WHY WE SHOULD BE PART OF WHONET PROGRAMME• World over antimicrobial resistance is a major public health problem. The WHONET software program puts each laboratory data into a common code and file format, which can be merged for national or global collaboration of antimicrobial resistance surveillanceDR.T.V.RAO MD 13
  14. ALL THE DOCUMENTED RESULTS ARE ANALYZED IN WHONET• The heart of WHONET is a software package designed to collect the results of antibiotic resistance tests. Researchers / Microbiologists feed the results into a computer and look for trends DR.T.V.RAO MD 14
  15. WHONET CONTAINS COMPLETE LABORATORY INFORMATION SYSTEM  Clinical reporting – return results to clinicians – permanent record  Laboratory management system – preliminary and final results – guide technologists through needed laboratory tests – billing and financial accounting  Data analysisDR.T.V.RAO MD 15
  16. CLINICIANS CAN ACCESS DATA OF THEIR PATIENTS ANYTIME IN THE COMPUTER JUST WITH CLICK OF THE MOUSEDR.T.V.RAO MD 16
  17. BENEFIT TO CLINICIANS FOR EFFECTIVE ANTIBIOTIC USAGE AND IMPLEMENTING ANTIBIOTIC POLICY• The WHONET experience suggests that solid drug resistance data can be collected and analysed in resource- constrained settings, using core microbiology, if local laboratories are given appropriate support. Strengthening these laboratories is therefore a potentially cost- effective contribution to both treating drug resistant disease and preventing its further spread.DR.T.V.RAO MD 17
  18. THE WHONET DOCUMENTATION AT TRAVANCORE MEDICAL COLLEGE, KOLLAM IS SUPPORTED BY …• Faculty• Dr Changdeo. S.Aher• Deepa Babin• Deepthy Sooryadas• Technical Assistance• Aneesh K.S• Sheena• Thanooja• Nusaifa• Majitha• FaseelaDR.T.V.RAO MD 18
  19. ANTIBIOTICS SAVE LIVES SAVE ANTIBIOTICS FROM MISUSEDR.T.V.RAO MD 19

  22. • The Programme is supported at our Institute by our Teaching and Technical staff. I wish many laboratories to initiate the system and even smaller laboratories as we have a control on antibiotic policy, documentation and know what is happening on the matters of Antibiotic resistance Email doctortvrao@gmail.comDR.T.V.RAO MD 22
