SPOT is a novel Clinician Decision Support Digital Health CE-marked medical device platform. Using AI, SPOT is able to harness information to enable the development of guidelines and predict prescriber performance to ensure safe and effective treatment of pain. SPOT supports prescribers switching patients addicted or misusing opioids to buprenorphine as part of a medication-assisted treatment regime to reduce the risk of opioid overdose death. SPOT is also used in palliative and end of life care settings to support opioid switch in cases of toxicity or unwanted side effects. In a real world, cross setting and multi-professional study in the NHS it is proven to significantly improve the confidence of opioid prescribing in users and adherence to best practice guidelines. SPOT is designed to reduce unwarranted variation and primary and secondary harms when prescribing opioids whilst supporting warranted variation of choice to align to individual situations, values and side effect profiles. SPOT is able to monitor drug usage and spend and suggest lower-cost opioids to users to reduce costs to healthcare organisations. SPOT is currently in use in the NHS.

Use cases

SPOT is currently in active day-to-day use in the NHS. SPOT is deployed Board-wide to all NHS Borders prescribers including pharmacists, nurses and physicians.
COVID-19 use cases:
In the COVID-19 pandemic, staff are being redeployed to new settings and unfamiliar roles to provide palliative care. SPOT supports these front-line staff, particularly when there are first-line opioid shortages and where there is an increased demand on specialist support. When adopted at scale, SPOT has the ability to use AI to simultaneously harness information that can help the development of guidelines for pain management and also monitor prescriber performance to ensure safe and effective treatment. SPOT can identify the magnitude of an error and whether it is likely to cause harm. SPOT will identify those calculations which prescribers find most taxing. There is no other solution available that compares with SPOT or that carries SPOT's accreditation and potential. We have absolute freedom to operate and we are first to market with a protected product.
