Infomed is a medicines information company specialising in the production of information databases for healthcare professionals.
At Infomed Mobile we've taken our extensive range of drug databases and forged them with our latest analytical software to produce the most invaluable set of mobile tools for Doctors, Nurses, Carers & Pharmacies. Explore our suite of tools
All of our applications use our drug databases that are compiled, verified and updated by one of our founders Peter Weedle (B.Pharm., LL.M., Ph.D., MR.Pharm.S, MPSI. Adjunct Professor of Clinical Pharmacy, UCC.) These databases are currently used by thousands of pharmacies and have been in use for over 20 years. Over 100-million prescriptions have been checked and verified for interactions using our databases. They are updated regularly to ensure that all newly introduced drugs are included as soon as possible.
Our vision is to develop specialist mobile software solutions that improve patient experience and help support healthcare professionals who are responsible for keeping on top of continuously evolving evidence, medical developments and guidelines.
“The prescribing of medicines in primary care is one of the most powerful tools we have available to improve the health of patients. Nevertheless, armed with such potent drugs, there is always a risk that patients will be harmed. Sometimes this happens despite the highest quality clinical care, but in other situations care is sub-optimal. The problem is that in the messy and time-constrained reality of clinical practice it is impossible to do everything perfectly; human beings are inherently fallible.”
