MedicineInsight – improved prescribing and medicine use for Australia

To get the most out of Australia's substantial investment in healthcare and access to medicines, it's important we understand how medicines are used and prescribed.

Until now it has been difficult to determine how medicines are prescribed, who they are prescribed for, and the conditions and effects of new medicines released into the community.

MedicineInsight is a unique, Australian Government funded program that aims to increase understanding of prescribing behaviour in Australian general practice. 

Through this understanding, MedicineInsight will assist with:

  • quality improvement in participating general practices
  • reducing complexity in prescribing
  • informing future health policy
  • supporting a sustainable PBS. 

The ultimate goal is to achieve better health outcomes for all Australians.
