A summary of the Minnesota One Health Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative's Year One successes and next steps.
An antibiogram is the compilation of antimicrobial susceptibilities of selected pathogens isolated from a specific human or animal population. Statewide, we have a human antibiogram of isolates sent to the Public Health Laboratory at the Minnesota Department of Health. The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center releases an antibiogram of bacterial isolates in their veterinary patients. These two antibiograms are available at the links below. In addition, for their own daily use, many health care facilities produce tailored antibiograms that reflect their specific patient population.
Antibiograms can serve as valuable tools in guiding therapy choices.

National Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network
The Minnesota Department of Health's Public Health Laboratory is one of seven regional laboratories that make up the national Antibiotic Resistance Lab Network (ARLN), established by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As part of the ARLN, Minnesota plays a key role in helping the nation understand and combat antibiotic resistance.
