MedSafer applies an electronic evidence-based set of criteria, derived from current research, and established scientific guidelines that address polypharmacy. MedSafer provides information on why a medication might be harmful and how to safely deprescribe it.
The MedSafer app is integrated with PointClickCare and processes medical conditions in the format of ICD10 codes and medications using drug identification numbers (DINs). MedSafer is fast, effective, and safe at facilitating deprescribing – there’s no manual data entry. The software has been developed and validated by Canadian experts in internal medicine, geriatrics, palliative care, nursing, and pharmacy. The MedSafer app displays deprescribing opportunities directly on the PointClickCare interface.
