The result is less than optimal. 1–10 Superfluous and unnecessary antibiotic treatment is probably more frequent. 1–10 Superfluous antibiotic treatment has contributed to the development of bacterial species resistant to all available antibiotics. In the following chapter we present the rationale for computerized decision support for antibiotic prescription; the experience gained thus far; the lessons learned from previous experience and future directions in electronic prescribing. We will focus on the treatment of bacterial infections.
