Modeus turns 20!

20 years

This month marks Modeus’ 20th birthday 🎉

It’s hard to put into words everything that we’ve packed into the last 20 years, so we’ve created a timeline video!

From humble beginnings under our old name Methsof back in 2003, we released the world’s first opioid dispensing software (MethDA) to the retail pharmacy industry. Modeus is now operating in 6 healthcare related industries globally with over 6500 happy customers across Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, Canada and Ireland.

We are just getting started and are looking forward to seeing what the next 20 years has in store!

South Australia Health HS8 rollout

“We are pleased to be partnering with Modeus to deliver HS8 to our network of South Australian Public Hospital Pharmacies. SA Health is determined to lead the way in best practice medication management solutions, and by future-proofing controlled drug workflow management via implementing the HS8 platform, we are confident that this will result in improved efficiencies, as well as improved medication safety and compliance throughout the SA Health network.”

Modeus was featured in a recent episode of Talking Healthtech, discussing the complexities of controlled drug administration in healthcare and how technology can assist.

In this episode, the discussion is focused on overcoming medication safety and operational efficiencies associated with controlled drugs in healthcare settings. It also covers what the future holds for Modeus and medication management technology more broadly.

Modeus has been announced as the successful partner for the Electronic Medication Registers and Compatible Remote Locking Devices tender issued by Health Support Services (WA health system), the shared service provider for the WA Health System, Government of Western Australia.

Our HS8 platform will be rolled out to over 80 public hospitals and facilities across Department of Health (WA Health), meaning that these health services will reap the benefits of significant operational efficiencies – giving hospital staff their time back to reinvest into patient care – as well as providing a safer and more secure work environment by enhancing medication safety, security and governance across the WA hospital network.

Comment from Modeus:
Modeus CEO Carl Zufi said Modeus is thrilled to be partnering with WA Health to deliver a world class product to its hospital network. “Modeus initially presented HS8 to the WA Health Chief Pharmacists back in 2017 and since this time our company has been on a journey to continually improve the product with new integrations, new features and design enhancements. We are delighted that WA hospitals will be implementing a product that is truly the first of its kind anywhere in the world. I personally couldn’t be prouder of the Modeus team and would like to thank WA Health for putting its faith in our company. We acknowledge this as a fantastic opportunity for our company, and we can’t wait to get started.” 

Comment from WA Health:
WA Health’s Michael Petrovski, Chief Pharmacist of King Edward Memorial Hospital and Project Manager said that he was impressed by HS8’s intuitive design, functional capabilities and the positive feedback from hospitals where the system is currently in use. 
“WA Health are looking forward to partnering with Modeus to deliver HS8 to Western Australian Public Hospitals. Improving medication safety and governance throughout our hospital network has been at the forefront of our thinking to meet needs of a digital health system. We are confident Modeus will deliver a terrific solution, future-proofing best practice controlled medication management, giving Nurses and Pharmacists more time to put back into providing patient care.

Modeus and WellSky partner to deliver electronic controlled drug management to global markets

Australian healthcare software company Modeus is thrilled to announce a partnership with WellSky International Ltd, providers of the UK’s leading digital medicines management platform (Pharmacy, EPMA and Chemotherapy).

Under the agreement, WellSky will sell a branded version of HS8 called “WellSky CD Manager” to its customers in Ireland and the UK, with plans to extend to the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and South Africa in the future.

The solution eliminates the need for controlled drug paper records, which have been identified as a potential source of infection in recent reviews covering hospital hygiene and safety during the
pandemic. It is integrated with WellSky systems to deliver seamless controlled drug management while helping to improve governance and compliance.

Rob Tysall-Blay, CEO of Wellsky International, commented; “WellSky is delighted to partner with Modeus on this journey.

WellSky International has a comprehensive medication management platform and WellSky CD Manager extends and compliments this to provide a fully integrated solution unmatched anywhere else.

2018 Year in Review

It has been a huge year for Modeus, one that has delivered incredibly strong foundations for an even bigger 2019. Here’s some of what happened and what’s ahead!


After 15 years as Methsof, a name that literally described our first ever product (Methadone Software), we have changed our company name along with a complete brand update for our company and products.


HS8 was officially launched with a very successful pilot at Peninsula Health, with plans in place for rollout to other areas of the hospital from early 2019. HS8 also had significant interest from other hospitals, some of which are currently progressing through the implementation process and others expressing strong interest to commence in 2019.


The DiamondCare platform has received very positive feedback resulting in a strong uptake in its first year of release with full rollout across a number of facilities and several other progressing through trials.

In addition, the DiamondCare / DDBook integration connects the facilities to their local pharmacy providing efficiencies and process improvements benefiting both the facility and pharmacy.

Vet S8

2018 has been another very strong growth year for Vet S8. Along with many regular enhancements, the platform has been integrated with both VetLink SQL and Vision VPM veterinary management software. The platform’s security has also been bolstered with features such as two factor authentication.

DDBook & MethDA

Both products have experienced continued growth. Among other enhancements, DDBook has added LOTS POS integration with more POS integrations being developed.

Next year will see continuous enhancements to both products including innovations, responses to customer requests and compliance changes.

Cloud Backup

Starting from early 2019, our DDBook customers will be able to automatically back up their controlled drug data to the cloud, providing peace of mind from knowing their data is stored securely and is easily retrievable by our support team when needed. This service is ready to use now, so if you would like to get started early, please contact our Sales Team to arrange a suitable time.


In the spirit of the holiday season and in lieu of sending out cards and gifts, we have made company donations to these great causes: Surf Life Saving Foundation, RSPCA & to The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal.

Methsof is now Modeus

We have officially changed our company name from Methsof to Modeus!

After 15 years of operation under the name Methsof (originating from Methadone Software), we are excited to announce a new company name which reflects our broadening offerings across multiple healthcare industries.

The new name is derived from the Latin word “Modus” and has several meanings relating to “measurement”, a concept which is at the very core of our drug management software.

Along with the new name, we have refreshed our company branding including a completely new suite of logos centered around a “multi-faceted” design theme which accurately represents our products and company as a whole.

We look forward to delivering the same high quality software and outstanding support under our new banner.
