MELBOURNE, Australia

MedAdvisor Limited (ASX:MDR) an Australian software developer focused on improving health outcomes by placing patients at the centre of connected health platforms, today launches the first phase of its GP Link program.

The first phase of the program will allow MedAdvisor to gather data and feedback from doctors as they test the two main functionalities: patient adherence tracking and remote prescription re-issue.

MedAdvisor CEO, Mr Robert Read, said: “We are very excited to launch MedAdvisor’s highly anticipated GP Link feature. GP Link represents the final building block in our integrated health platform that connects patients, pharmacists and GPs, with the goal of influencing superior individual health outcomes.

GP Link will strengthen doctor-patient relationships, allowing doctors to access patients’ medication adherence profiles, enabling more accurate consultation, and reinforcing the role of the patient’s regular doctor as the primary healthcare provider. It provides patients with convenient features including reminders to see their doctor for a new prescription and also being able to request repeat prescriptions from their chosen doctor via their smartphone.

“As a first mover in this space, MedAdvisor is poised to capitalise on significant opportunities in the short to mid-term, and we look forward to reporting back to the market on the uptake and success of GP Link.”

Dr Frank Barbagallo, a General Practitioner in Deepdene, Victoria, said: “Any tool that provides GPs with more evidence to make better clinical decisions and reduce the fragmentation of care is welcomed. As GPs, we will be looking forward to the successful first phase of this program so that it can be more widely rolled out. MedAdvisor looks to be an exciting practical innovation to assist primary care.”

National Pharmacies has made the MedAdvisor program available at its 54 pharmacies across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.

Mr Sam Laing, Development Manager for National Pharmacies, said: “We are focused on enhancing the everyday wellbeing of our members and we feel strongly that the MedAdvisor platform is able to improve the quality of people’s lives by helping them to manage their medications safely and effectively. We applaud the addition of the GP Link, making this a connected healthcare platform which will result in better health outcomes for our patients. The program is already being used by over 10,000 patients across the National Pharmacies network.”

MedAdvisor will derive a revenue stream from GP Link in the future to allow low-risk patients to electronically request repeat prescriptions and have these issued.

In a recent survey of over 11,000 MedAdvisor users, 87 per cent of respondents indicated the ability to request new prescriptions from their GP would be a useful feature.
