Starship's paediatric antibiotics prescribing app sees downloads in every DHB

Starship Children's Hospital has adapted Auckland District Health Board's Script app for paediatric patients, promising to make prescribing antibiotics for children more efficient and safer for clinicians.

The Script for Paediatrics app brings over 250 separate web-based guidelines together, feeding into multiple algorithms which map a path for users to identify the correct antibiotic and treatment plan and helping to ensure the most targeted antibiotic is prescribed.
