MicroGuide – critical antibiotic guidance at the point of care, on a mobile device, all managed locally
The Mobile Healthcare application market is set to grow from £2.2 billion in 2015 to £11.1 billion in 2018.
Horizon Strategic Partners provides mHealth applications to the healthcare market. The Company offers 5 different applications with its flag ship product being MicroGuide™.
Hospitals distribute clinical guidance to their clinicians via leaflets or via their intranet. This information is not easily accessible or current when clinicians need this information when treating patients.
MicroGuide™ enables medical organisations to create and publish clinical guidance to doctors’ mobile devices so clinicians always have the latest guidance at the point of care.
Our metrics show that MicroGuide™ is accessed by clinicians every day and we believe its use increases adherence to latest prescribing guidelines. This is important; for instance, if doctors prescribe broad spectrum antibiotics rather than those recommended in the local guidelines it can result in an increase in antibiotic resistance and the outbreak of bacterial infections.
