FOR MORE EFFICIENT ANTIBIOTIC USE
Spearhead aims to tackle the silent pandemic of antimicrobial resistance with a unique multidisciplinary research-based digital solutions and patient-centric approach that addresses stewardship and prevention.
With Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) on an upward curve and the clinical pipeline for new antibiotics drying up, the current outlook is a bleak one, with doctors and patients losing ground in the fight against AMR. For this reason, antimicrobial stewardship is of the utmost importance and a critical part of AMR strategies as it targets behaviour change in both the prescription and uptake of antibiotics for better clinical outcomes.
Our Response to address the silent pandemic
With our SPEARHEAD solutions, our goal is to reduce the burden to society of antibiotic resistance and improve treatment efficacy as well as compliance.
Empiric treatment with broader-spectrum agents. Probability of ineffective or unneeded therapy inducing AMR
Lack of awareness from patients and citizens
Lack of data in AMR
Rapidly get the right drug to the right patient
Better patient adherence to the antibiotic treatment
Slow down the resistance, preserve the treatment option
Reduce costs – decide on whom we should send the sample analysis / better target the diagnostics
Better understanding of the antibiotic choice and outcomes (data)
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the vulnerabilities of healthcare systems worldwide, but it also showcased a remarkable ability to adapt and respond.
By utilizing Point of Care (POC) technologies and leveraging big data, we aim to create a blueprint for a more robust and resilient society. Our solutions not only address the problem of AMR, but they can also be applied to future health challenges.
