Modelling Tool
Better Meds

Better Meds is a well-designed and powerful closed loop medication management system which was developed to completely replace time-consuming, error-prone, and paper-based processes for prescribing, medication administration, and pharmacist reviews.

Better Meds fully supports even the most complex medication management scenarios in a simple and easy to use way. Decision support for situations known as “never events”, allergies, and dose range, as well as powerful integration options, empowers doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, allowing them to improve patient safety, and deliver better and more personalised medical care.

Our comprehensive system helps with work prioritisation and significantly improves communication between physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. Furthermore, it provides full access to all structured clinical data so that it can be easily exported and used to generate dashboards, discover new knowledge, and create reports to reflect on and optimise workflows.
