Transforming Medication Management: A Journey with SCIE into YOURmeds Innovative Medication Management Device

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) is dedicated to both learning more about innovation in the social care sector and sharing best practices. 

Embarking on a journey to look into innovative ways to provide care and support for people to help them live their best lives, the SCIE witnessed the transformative impact of YOURmeds.  

Meeting a YOURmeds user in Manchester and social care teams from Manchester City Council and Stoke on Trent City Council, the story of improved quality of life echoed.

“When I met with the YOURmeds user, she shared that the device greatly improved her quality of life. It helped her manage her medication and prevent unnecessary visits from care workers from disrupting her daily routine. It had also reduced her medication, as regular medication had gotten some aspects of her condition under control. She would encourage others to use this device.”

The SCIE found that YOURmeds not only empowered individuals to efficiently manage their medication but also reduced the need for frequent care worker visits, allowing users to have uninterrupted daily routines.  

SCIE also met with Health and Social Care teams in Manchester and Stoke-on-Trent, where they learnt about the impact YOURmeds had on their operations. The unanimous praise from the teams highlighted the positive transformation in their communities, as YOURmeds streamlined medication management and reduced the demand for in-home care worker visits.  

However, despite these achievements, the teams identified funding as a critical challenge impacting the broader adoption of the successful YOURmeds system.  

It was reported that medication funding traditionally falls under the jurisdiction of the NHS, while the responsibility of ensuring adherence rests with social care workers. This fragmented approach highlights the pressing need for a unified healthcare system.  

YOURmeds is working with Bridgend County Council and Cwm Taf Morgannwg to bring health and social care together to address medication adherence in the community. Further information on this project can be found:
