The OneChoice® Report breaks down complicated molecular diagnostic results into easy to read interpretations and well-researched recommendations that maximize physician efficiency. Every report contains our unique ArkScore™ to help prescribers make informed decisions when choosing the right antibiotic.
Research shows that recommendations by a specialist physician are adhered to as opposed to those by pharmacists or nurses, so our recommendations are written for doctors and are constantly reviewed by members of our Infectious Disease Team.
The OneChoice® decision engine combines machine-learning artificial intelligence with decades of deep infectious disease expertise to guide physicians to a singular treatment regimen that targets the most relevant infection, with the lowest risk to the patient.
When faced with multiple detected organisms, physicians often over-prescribe antibiotics, instead of finding a singular treatment regimen. OneChoice® weighs dozens of variables, including the source of infection, the organisms and resistance genes detected, patient allergies, age, and sex, to arrive at a focused treatment recommendation.
The patent-pending ArkScore™ helps prescribers make better-informed decisions by presenting complex information on a simple numerical scale. When faced with multiple patients, different lab results, and countless resistance genes, it can be difficult for prescribers to compare drug options or even the levels of infection complexity between patients.
The multiple ArkScores displayed on the OneChoice report combine Arkstone’s expertise in antimicrobial stewardship with complex algorithms and a deep understanding of infectious disease to communicate the level of antimicrobial resistance expressed in the organisms found, and provide the most effective treatment, with the least risk for adverse events, reducing the unnecessary use of broad-spectrum antibiotics.
Antimicrobial Resistance ArkScore™
measures levels of antimicrobial resistance expressed in the detected organisms. Lower scores denote low resistance, in which case the antibiotic of choice can be given with less concern about adverse outcomes. A higher score indicates higher levels of resistance, limiting the antibiotic options available, increasing risk to the patient.
Adverse Reaction ArkScore™
provides important information to the prescriber about the specific drug being recommended. The lower the score, the safer, more effective, and less risk associated with the use of that drug. The higher the score the more adverse events and risks to the patient associated with the antibiotic.
Infection Complexity ArkScore™
provides a more complete picture to prescribers and caregivers of the level of difficulty presented by the detected organisms and resistance genes, when choosing a treatment plan.
