About medsminder.

medsminder is designed to help people improve their medications taking so that they can fully benefit from the medications their doctors prescribe for them. The NHS works hard to help people improve their health, yet much of the drugs budget is wasted, and people’s health deteriorates when people forget to take their medicines correctly, and we want to help patients and the NHS to improve.

medsminder is the result of several years of experience at ADI in design for digital health products. As an outcome of government funding through NHS-England and Innovate UK, ADI has conducted studies and feasibility projects with partners in industry, NHS, local authorities, relevant charities, and in UK universities, ADI founded the Digital Health and Care Alliance (DHACA), an expert group of over 500 members working in the field.

In Medications Adherence, ADI conducted a feasibility study in 2015 with Leeds University and Huddersfield CCG, that applied behaviour-changing science on a small scale to successful adherence improvement. medsminder is the outcome of that work, scaled up to larger populations.

About the medsminder Programme.

medsminder is being developed by ADI in Saltaire, Bradford, under the SBRI-Healthcare programme funded by NHS England. Its purpose is to develop effective ways to help people improve their adherence to prescribed medication, which will both improve their health and help the NHS avoid waste.

It builds on the behaviour change work of Dr Ian Kellar, Associate Professor of the School of Psychology at the University of Leeds. For more information, contact Dr Kellar ati.kellar@leeds.ac.uk.

The programme is being facilitated by Prescribing Support Services (PSS) based in Shipley, Bradford. PSS provide pharmacist support services to GP practices in the Bradford area and across the North of England. Melissa Burnley is the Programme Pharmacist for medsminder.

medsminder has been co-designed by volunteers under the guidance of Victoria Betton of ‘mHabitat’ which specialises in co-design and supports digital innovation in the NHS and wider public sector. For more information, visit www.wearemhabitat.com

I’ve found it much easier to plan when I take my medication so that it fits in with my day-to-day living.

I take the right doses at the right time and I feel much better because of it.
