NUH myMeds Mobile Application Support (FAQ)

General

How do I register an account on NUH myMeds?
  • On the side bar, select ‘LOGIN’ or ‘Sign In’ and click on ‘SIGN UP’.
  • Enter the fields required i.e. a valid email address, username, password and re-type password.
  • If successful, there will be a prompt which states ‘Your username has been created successfully’. 

Why is a PIN number required to login to NUH myMeds each time?

A PIN number acts as an additional level of security to protect your information stored on the app, as you may select to ‘Stay signed in’ when you first login so that you need not key in your username and password each time you use the app. 

What are the functions in NUH MyMeds?

There are five main functions and they are ‘My Medication’, ‘Re-order of Medication’, ‘Medication catalogue’, ‘Pharmacy Queue-watch’ and ‘Wayfinder’. The details of each function will be elaborated below.

  1. My Medication allows the user to add a list of medications that he/she is currently taking. Reminders can be set for each dose of medication to remind the user to take the medication at a specified time. Details of each medication (e.g. side effects, storage) are also easily accessible when you click on the name of medication that you have added in.
  2. Re-order of Medication allows the user to place an order for medication  from a previous partially collected NUH prescription either through the Order & Relax service or Home Delivery.
  3. Medication catalogue contains drug information about the various medications present in the NUH pharmacy formulary, in the form of virtual patient information leaflets.Users will be able to know more about their medications and how to manage any medication-related problems e.g. side effects.
  4. Pharmacy Queue-watch allows the user to view the current queue situation in the pharmacy via screen-grabs from webcams in Main building pharmacy, Kent Ridge Wing pharmacy, Medical Centre pharmacy and Retail Heart pharmacy.
  5.  Wayfinder includes maps to locate the various pharmacies in NUH and shows you how to get to a particular location in the main building. 
I have to enter in my personal details such as address, contact numbers, and even NRIC number when ordering medication. Is this platform secure?
  • The mobile application is secured by your PIN number, and login password.
  • For ordering of medication, the NRIC number input is one of the necessary information that we require to process your order. The details are sent directly to a secure NUH email account only accessible by authorized pharmacy staff. These details are not saved in the application, your phone or the vendor’s database. 

Will more than one user be able to use the app on the same mobile device?

  • Yes. However, only profile and medication list information will be retained.
  • Notification reminders for first user will be deleted when second user logs in. This is to prevent confusion.
