The app is designed to simplify and promote the reporting of suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs), including adverse events following immunisation (AEFIs) by both the public and healthcare providers. The App also allows the public and healthcare providers to learn about medicine safety news from SAHPRA, thereby creating an awareness of medicines; their potential adverse effects and pharmacovigilance.
Medsafety app provides a two-way risk communication between the Authority and the reporters. A reporter (either a healthcare provider or a patient) captures an adverse reactions experienced during the use of a medicine(s) and submit it to the Authority via the app.
The app allows the Authority to provide feedback to reporters with regards to the submitted reports in the form of acknowledgement of the report and medicine safety information and news.
