New MedSearch app is now available for download
The app was created as part of the Health IT Graduate Program to provide users with up-to-date, easy to access Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) and Product Information (PI) for registered prescription medicines.
How will the app help patients and health professionals?
Prior to the launch of the MedSearch™ app, patients were expected to consult the leaflets found within the packaging of some medicines, speak with their healthcare professional or search the TGA website for medicine information. By offering CMI and PI documents through a mobile application, users can access information on the safe and effective use of their medicine anywhere, any time and save the results for fast and simple future reference.
The process for health professionals will also be streamlined with important scientific Product Information being immediately accessible through the app, including adverse effects, dosage instructions, indications and precautions.
Each time a PI or CMI is downloaded, the app will automatically access the most recent version, ensuring access to the most current information possible. The app will also undergo periodic updates to uphold and improve functionality.
Help spread the word
We have developed a media pack to help you spread the word about the MedSearch™ app using social media. Use these free resources to remind your friends and family how important it is to know your medicines.
