Meds75+ database now available for use as open data
Fimea has published the Meds75+ database on its website as open data source code, making its contents more readily usable as part of different databases.
Maintained by Fimea, the Meds75+ database is designed to support pharmacotherapy decision-making in primary health care. Its objective is to help to choose medicines that are suitable, effec-tive and safe for persons over 75 years of age. The elderly and their family members can also use the database, because it is available for all free of charge on the Fimea website. The database is also available in Swedish and English.
