Thinksulin is a point of care application providing information and decision support for junior medical officers (JMOs) and nurses. The application supports the development of knowledge, confidence and skills of the workforce in diabetes management, and improves the experience and outcomes for people with diabetes in hospital.

It was developed because patients with diabetes are frequently admitted to hospital for treatment of conditions other than diabetes. Therefore, insulin orders, administration and glycaemia management are the responsibility of general ward clinicians.

Evaluation of the NSW subcutaneous insulin chart found "a lack of understanding about components of best practice management of people with diabetes", showing the need for a tool to support JMOs and nurses in the management of diabetes.​
