What is MedicineInsight?
MedicineInsight is a quality improvement program developed and managed by NPS MedicineWise with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health. MedicineInsight allows GPs to reflect on their own patterns of prescribing and patient care, and compare these with other GPs in their practice. These can be benchmarked at local, regional and national levels. Participating practices are offered customised quality improvement activities that support alignment with best practice and identify key areas for improvement.
Insights from primary care are drawn from the aggregated clinical data of all participating general practices. These insights can be used by policymakers, health systems and health professionals. By responding to the identified evidence gaps in primary health care, MedicineInsight is improving clinical practice and health outcomes in Australia.

Patient and provider information for your practice
All practices participating in MedicineInsight need to display the patient poster in their waiting room, and provide the patient with an information sheet if the patient requests more information.
Practices must also share the healthcare professional information sheet with their staff, as it contains important information about privacy. GPs who would like the MedicineInsight practice clinical activity reports to identify them by name can complete the consent form at the end of the information sheet.
