Our next seminar in the Health Technology for Tomorrow series will be held on 23 February 2017, 12-2pm at Somerville College. This month's topic is 'Precision antibiotic prescribing in primary care: AccuRx data-driven decision support'. The talk will be given by Jacob Haddad from AccuRx, and a panel discussion will follow.

Series overview:

The Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative Oxford is delighted to present a new series of seminars to showcase and discuss exciting healthcare technology innovations in three key areas:

  • Wearables
  • Imaging
  • Digital health related technologies

The seminars will provide a platform for visitors from the health technology industry to present their ideas and products to a multidisciplinary group of healthcare researchers and members of the wider University community.

The aim of the seminars is to encourage discussions to define priority areas of clinical need and greatest impact for emerging technologies and to foster relationships between academia and industry.

Technology synopsis:

AccuRx is an early stage startup building a data-driven rapid diagnostic to help eliminate inappropriate antibiotic use

AccuRx are combining decision support, behavioural science and data science, and are starting in primary care.

A pilot of the first software solution is currently being set up in Oxfordshire.
