Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Dataset Documentation

AMR-UTI is a freely accessible dataset, derived from electronic health record (EHR) information on over 80,000 patients with urinary tract infections (UTI) treated at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, USA between 2007 and 2016.

Each observation in the dataset corresponds to a urine specimen sent to the clinical microbiology laboratory to assess for antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Each observation includes (1) the antimicrobial susceptibility profile, (2) the empiric antibiotic treatment decision, which is made without knowledge of the susceptibility testing results, and (3) patient and specimen features useful for prediction of AMR.
