Differentiating between bacterial and viral infections using a rapid point of care test

The Oxford AHSN is supporting a service evaluation of the Lumos Diagnostics FebriDx point of care test in the Royal Berkshire Hospital Emergency Department. This evaluation intends to show that the test, which can differentiate between bacterial and viral respiratory infections, will help to drive down unnecessary antibiotic use, lead to fewer hospital admissions and reduce the time patients spend in hospital. It will also help to triage patients for further tests as required.

The AHSN will be supporting by providing project management expertise and health economics input to inform any future potential business case.
