Value in prescribing — Immunoglobulin products

Immunoglobulin (Ig) products provide critical therapy for people with immunodeficiencies and immune-type neurological conditions, but demand is growing and supply is limited, so it is important that these products are used appropriately.

The Value in Prescribing Program: Immunoglobulin Products consortium is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and works with the National Blood Authority.

Improving clinical practice and health outcomes for Australia

MedicineInsight is a quality improvement program developed and managed by NPS MedicineWise with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health. MedicineInsight allows GPs to reflect on their own patterns of prescribing and patient care, and compare these with other GPs in their practice. These can be benchmarked at local, regional and national levels. Participating practices are offered customised quality improvement activities that support alignment with best practice and identify key areas for improvement.
