UK NHS Could Save £89 Million and Further the Fight Against Antimicrobial Resistance

A new study just published in the Journal of Medical Economics titled “Application of a simple point-of-care test to reduce UK healthcare costs and adverse events in outpatient acute respiratory infections” found that the FebriDx® test could save the United Kingdom’s healthcare system up to £89 million a year on unnecessary antibiotics, and further its efforts in the fight against antimicrobial resistance.
