Allergy analysis allows Arkstone’s OneChoice recommendations to be even more targeted and accurate
“We want recommendations to be as fine-tuned as possible. The more factors we can account for, the better the care a physician can provide for their patient” says Dr. Ari Frenkel, Arkstone’s Chief Science Officer and co-founder. “Many physicians using molecular diagnostics are already confused about how to decipher the results, and when patients have allergies to antibiotics, it further complicates the picture. By providing targeted therapy, and including options that take into consideration the patient’s allergies, it allows the doctor to focus more on that patient.”
OneChoice recommendations are just a part of the Arkstone Report which is already in use by many molecular laboratories across the country. Each Arkstone report also includes a proprietary ArkScore, which takes recommendations a step further by offering providers an easy way to compare antibiotics to one another, as some are considerably safer and more effective than others. The report presents physicians with a clear and easy to read analysis of laboratory results. The report is also an important part of Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs in hundreds of skilled nursing facilities nationwide.
“Our technology is always evolving, and we are constantly looking for ways to make our systems smarter and more effective,” says Dave Gross, CTO and co-founder, “By incorporating allergy information into it’s bag of tricks, our artificial intelligence engine improves exponentially”
Arkstone is committed to stem the global spread of antimicrobial resistance and the misuse of antibiotics by marrying advanced artificial intelligence with a deep understanding of infectious disease. Arkstone’s patent-pending OneChoice technology helps physicians practice precision-guided medicine through optimal treatment regimen recommendations. Additionally, the proprietary ArkScore system allows providers to compare antibiotics at a glance through an easy to understand visual score.
