To review the key principles and functionality of AMRexpert online platform.
The information part of the platform is comprised of rules based on the EUCAST recommendations and various standards for interpreting the results of antimicrobial susceptibility testing (EUCAST, CLSI versions 2020-2022). The technical part of the platform was developed using C# programming language, Angular and Bootstrap frameworks. AST results of Serratia marcescens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Enterococcus faecium specific isolates were analyzed for practical testing of the platform using EUCAST v.12.0, 2022 interpretation criteria.
The developed platform for the evaluation of microbiological reports includes a wide list of expert rules, various standards for the interpretation of the AST results. Consistent data input, the ability to switch forms between several microorganisms, and the presentation of evaluation results in the form of blocks allows all necessary information to be structured. Practical use of the platform is available for various infectious pathogens. Fast and efficient interaction between users is provided by different options for sharing and saving the results.
The web-based application evaluates microbiological reports in a comprehensive approach, with the ability to apply the results later to prescribe antimicrobial therapy.
