Costs of Antibiotic Resistance on the Healthcare System

Antibiotic resistance presents a serious and dangerous issue for the United States and the world as a whole. Because UTIs are the most common bacterial injection, it is critically important to ensure proper antibiotic treatment protocols. Between 1998 and 2011 in the United States, incidence of UTI increased 52% — population adjusted (Source) — with UTI related hospitalizations increasing from  roughly 100,000 to 400,000 (Source). The resulting costs to the healthcare system was nearly $3 billion in 2011 alone.
