We attended the ABHI Parliamentary Reception last night and CEO Giovanna Forte had the opportunity to speak with The Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care about how Forte Medical’s technology could save the NHS £1.2bn in unnecessary retesting of urine samples, cancellation of operations, over prescribing of unnecessary antibiotics and much more.
The event, attended by over 200 delegates celebrated the critical role HealthTech plays in improving lives and supporting the NHS.

The future of preventative care, infection control, antimicrobial resistance and patient safety are routinely undermined by lazy attitudes towards urine collection, the most common diagnostic process. Despite mounting evidence to support the need for a respected protocol, incumbent methods are failing modern medicine, patient health and the work of diligent clinicians.
Want to know more about our mission – visit us on stand 23 – and see first hand our world-class diagnostic specimen collection technology; Peezy Midstream reduces false-positive dipped urines by almost 70% and specimen contamination to just 2%. Current contamination is 23.5%, leading to 1 in 4 failed urine specimens – that’s over 14m annually or 56,000 every day. The unique Peezy Midstream delivers diagnostic integrity leading to targeted treatment; it helps address growing problems of infection control, unnecessary broad-spectrum antibiotic prescribing, AMR, and failed treatment of conditions that can become chronic.

Back in March of this year, the NHS National Institute for Health Research contacted Forte Medical, asking for a case study demonstrating how their research has assisted the launch of Peezy Midstream.
A few months earlier the NIHR in conjunction with the West Midlands AHSN conducted a valuable Usability Study on our diagnostic device. Results were excellent and have assisted us with adoption training and reassurance to HCPs and patients alike that using Peezy Midstream is far, far easier than trying to deliver this elusive urine specimen any other way …
The case study presented by Giovanna Forte on 10th October 2018 was very well received and has already led to enquiries from Primary Care clinicians who can see the benefit of right-first-time diagnoses for UTI and other common conditions that can take up so much GP time when left untreated.

It costs so little to put it right: “The NHS spent £434 million in 2013/14 on treating184,000 patients in unplanned admissions associated with a UTI. UTIs are the second-largest single group of healthcare-associated infections in the UK, accounting for 19.7% of all hospital acquired infections.”
