As exemplified by the ‘Action Plan for Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)’ formulated by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) in Japan in 2016, countries around the world are also taking steps to combat AMR.
However, in emerging countries, due to the shortage and uneven regional distribution of medical specialists, and inadequate medical platforms, diagnosis and treatment, including identification of causative organisms by gram staining and selection of appropriate antimicrobial agents, have not been properly carried out.
We have created a remote diagnostic support platform as a solution for regions such as these emerging countries, where there is a lack of infectious disease specialists or a lack of medical platforms.
This platform is a service that allows primary care physicians, who are having troubles in diagnosing infectious diseases, to upload medical images to the cloud and request an identification support by a medical specialist anywhere in the world.
Multiple images can be uploaded for each patient and specimen.
Fees are based on a pay-per-read request basis, and the reading response time can be determined.
The platform also has functions to request a quick response and to request cross-checking by multiple experts.
