Updates to MedicineWise app help ease carer role

Funded by Family and Community Services NSW, updates to the free NPS MedicineWise app now enable carers and healthcare workers of one or more people to keep details of everyone they care for in one app, including details of medicines.  

The app updates also allow people who have more than one carer to share their medicine details with multiple people.

NPS MedicineWise CEO Steve Morris says that keeping on top of medicines is an important but often confusing task for carers.

“Our MedicineWise app now supports carers while remaining the trusted repository of patient health information and up-to-date and accurate information on medicines and relevant medical conditions,” he said.

NSW Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Gareth Ward said: “I’m thrilled the NSW government has been able to help improve the app and make the role of carers easier and more efficient.”

NPS MedicineWise is a not-for-profit organisation that receives funding from the federal Department of Health. The free MedicineWise app was developed as part of its commitment to supporting the quality use of medicines in Australia. The app can be downloaded from a preferred app store on a mobile phone.
