Oslo University Hospital modernizes its technology used for patient-centered care with PrecisePK's Bayesian MIPD.
SAN DIEGO, May 3, 2023– Today, PrecisePK announces that it will begin partnering with Oslo University Hospital (OUS) in Norway. PrecisePK is delighted to welcome OUS on board as its second Norwegian health institution, following the University Hospital of North Norway (UNN). PrecisePK is accelerating in delivering model-informed precision dosing (MIPD) solutions on a global scale.
In 2021, UNN’s system-wide implementation of Bayesian AUC dosing for vancomycin and busulfan was a resounding success. PrecisePK now delivers its technology to Oslo University Hospital to enhance patient-centric care. From minimizing drug toxicity and adverse events to identifying the optimal dosage for cancer drugs, patient safety takes priority. “In our clinical pharmacology lab at Oslo University Hospital, we are delighted that we have finally come to the point where we can start using a platform like PrecisePK in our clinical routine as well as in research,” remarked Stein Bergan, Ph.D., professor at Oslo University Hospital and the University of Oslo.
“Our experience with PrecisePK is it’s a user-friendly and intuitive interface. With PrecisePK, we expect to transition away from the various in-house applications, for drugs like busulfan, tacrolimus, vancomycin, and aminoglycosides. We have taken a significant step forward in our ability to provide TDM (therapeutic drug monitoring) and PGx (pharmacogenomics) support to clinics.”
“We are looking forward to building models for more drugs where we have large data sets. By establishing this practice with a documented and validated tool like PrecisePK, we will consolidate our clinical service and upgrade it to the highest standard of care for model-informed precision dosing,” Dr. Bergan continues, underlining another significant contribution this partnership will bring to clinicians worldwide through Bayesian MIPD.
