Janine Garrett

Founder and Director

In 1999, Janine Garrett was a hospital-based clinical pharmacist who saw the need for a computer software program to help coordinate the intricate treatment programs of patients suffering complex and chronic diseases such as cancer and end stage renal disease. Unable to find a commercial solution capable of meeting Australian requirements, she undertook a Masters in Information Technology at Bond University and created her own solution.

Janine’s experience as a pharmacy manager at the Gold Coast Hospital and John Flynn Private Hospital inspired her to develop a system that would improve accuracy, clarity, safety and take some workload off a hospital system stretched to the limit by an ageing population.

With more than twenty years’ experience in clinical pharmacy (including oncology, renal, cardiac, HIV and drug utilisation evaluation), pharmacy management within the Australian health sector, and a Master’s degree in Information Technology, Janine was able to create a complete solution that deals with the real problems faced by those delivering care to patients in Australia.
