Doctor designs his own PC MBS app

Dr Cameron Edgell, who relocated to Australia from the UK in 2007, told MO that the challenge of adapting to Australia’s item-based health system was the initial motivation for the development of the MBS Item Browser.

“I found it useful to have the MBS offline because it is a lot quicker than accessing the schedule online and then, because I have a background in computing, it occurred to me that it would be useful to have it in an app form,” Dr Edgell said.
