For Immediate Release:
July 10, 2023 (Humble, Texas) – SE Texas ER & Hospital a physician-managed hospital designed to provide community access to prompt, compassionate emergency care, announces that they have partnered with the trailblazing MeMed BV® test that distinguishes viral from bacterial infection within one hour.
MeMed BV® is a diagnostic test developed to address the management of patients with acute infection in different clinical settings, including the emergency department. The MeMed BV® test uses machine learning to integrate measurements of three key host-immune proteins into a score indicating the likelihood of bacterial or viral infections. The ability to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections early in the diagnostic process has significant potential to impact patient care and combat antimicrobial resistance.
“In patients who present signs of infection, the MeMed platform is an invaluable tool that will allow us to figure out whether the infection is caused by a bacteria or virus, or even both, to make the most informed judgment on treatment with antibiotics, or not,” said Michael Chang, Medical Director at SE Texas ER & Hospital.
Dr. Eran Eden, CEO and Co-founder of MeMed, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with SE Texas ER & Hospital and for the opportunity to apply our innovative MeMed BV technology to aid in prudent use of antibiotics and improving patient outcomes.”
