Script_Our First App

As the number of projects the Lab takes on continues to grow, we’ve recently made our first steps into the world of digital design for healthcare. Working with a team of pharmacists and researchers from Auckland DHB and the University of Auckland, the DHW Lab has helped create Script - an educational app for medical students and junior doctors to learn correct antibiotics treatment guidelines.

Previously only available in a desktop-formatted browser, medical students and junior doctors can now access antibiotic treatment guidelines through a mobile-optimised app on their smartphones. Designed to support their own understanding of antibiotics, Script will help students and clinicians gain a stronger knowledge of prescription drugs and minimise incorrect prescriptions.

The app is available for both iPhone and Android, and is currently undergoing a clinical beta trial with a select group of participants.
