NPS do Their Part to Help Fight Antibiotic Resistance

After the success of the NPS Medicines List application, NPS MedicineWise approached us with a new brief for an app that provides users with a way to ensure they’re taking their antibiotics as prescribed. Antibiotic Resistance is a major threat to human health, and it’s cause is the misuse of antibiotics. Not taking antibiotics exactly as prescribed for a bacterial infection contributes to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria – which means that in the near future, antibiotics may no longer work for common infections.

The new Antibiotics Reminder app from NPS MedicineWise makes it easy to take your antibiotics correctly.

The app allows you to:

  • Set alerts that remind you to take your medicines
  • Set alerts that remind you to take your medicines
  • Track whether you’ve taken all your doses
  • Record how you feel in a daily recovery diary – and share this with your family and friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
