Missed an antibiotic dose? This app will alert you

  04 September 2023

A major reason for bacteria developing resistance is patients’ low adherence to antibiotic treatment — not taking the full course, missing doses, etc. The app aims to address this, to increase the lifespan of existing antibiotics.

The app connects doctors, pharmacists and patients on a single platform. When a doctor prescribes an antibiotic, pharmacists nearby will get an alert and the patient will also get an alert about shops where the medicine is available.

The platform, named AMRx, was co-developed by the startup Anti Microbial Resistance Action Centre of Excellence (AM-RACE) incubated in BBC. AMRx was created as a component under the VaidyaRx app developed last year by SicureMi Healthcare Technology Pvt Ltd incubated in IIT Delhi.
