Data collected during the interactive reporting process in a microbiology laboratory opens up the possibility to monitor continuously the development of resistance of microorganisms to antibiotics and occurrences of infectious hospitalism in early stages. After installing a reporting system in the laboratory all reports are evaluated under these aspects. This paper discusses the first results obtained.

Die interaktive Datenerfassung im Mikrobiologischen Laboratorium ermoeglicht die kontinuierliche Auswertung der Resistenzentwicklung von Bakterien gegen Antibiotika und die Frueherkennung des infektioesen Hospitalismus. Alle mikrobiologischen Befunde werden routinemaessig ausgewertet. Diese Arbeit berichtet ueber die ersten Ergebnisse des Auswertungssystems.
