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 artificial intelligence and machine learning with decades of deep infectious disease human expertise to guide physicians to a singular treatment regimen based on organisms detected in molecular diagnostic tests.
When faced with multiple detected organisms, physicians often prescribe a number of different antibiotics instead of a singular treatment regimen. OneChoice® weighs dozens of variables, including the source of infection, organisms, and resistance genes detected, patient allergies, age, and sex, and then recommends the most optimal course of treatment with the lowest risk to the patient.
The patent-pending ArkScore™ System helps prescribers make better-informed decisions. It combines our expertise in antimicrobial stewardship with complex algorithms and a deep understanding of infectious disease.
Through a simple numerical scale, the ArkScore™ communicates the level of antimicrobial resistance expressed in the organisms found, and provides 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 use of that drug. The lower 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.
