Purpose and goal

The project aimed to do a proof-of-concept of a new web service for detection and tracing of antibiotic resistant bacteria at Swedish hospitals. It was performed in collaboration between 1928 Diagnostics and three Swedish hospitals. A first version of the web service has been developed and tested. We have fulfilled all set goals.

Expected results and effects

The project parties have been able to share epidemiological data and draw conclusions about if they have patients with infectious bacteria that are very similar at the different hospitals. The data sharing service enables efficient outbreak monitoring and detection at the hospitals. It has been very valuable to test the service on real data and to get feedback from the users.

Planned approach and implementation

1928 Diagnostics have during the project developed software for sharing of epidemiological data between the project parties. The hospitals have sequenced over 600 bacteria from patients that have been uploaded and analysed. 1928 Diagnostics received valuable feedback through discussions and interviews. The project has been well functioning and we now aim to continue developing the project to be able to eventually release a commercial version.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
