Spectrum MD is an innovative new smartphone app that is designed to minimize and fight back against antibiotic resistance, which has become a worldwide problem due to the overuse and over-prescribing of antibiotic medications.
Developed by a group of researchers from the University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services, the app allows health care professionals to directly enter in pertinent information about a specific patient. The app then offers treatment recommendations that are tailored to that specific patient. The app not only helps prevent needless over-prescription of antibiotics, but can also help doctors achieve optimal results with patients.
Antibiotic resistance is a serious problem which results in decreased effectiveness of antibiotic medication. The Spectrum MD app is a novel way of dealing with this problem by using the power of information.
