Electronic medication charts

Electronic medication charts standardise information presented in software systems to support electronic prescribing, claiming and supply of eligible PBS and non-PBS medicines.

The Commission has developed a set of guidance documents to support the safe implementation of Electronic National Residential Medication Chart (eNRMC) medication management systems in residential care facilities. 

A set of information requirements for a PBS electronic Chemotherapy Medication Chart (eCMC) has also been developed to support safe electronic prescribing, administration, dispensing and claiming of PBS and non-PBS chemotherapy medicines in oncology systems.

The Australian Government Department of Health engaged the Commission to develop both the eNRMC resources and the PBS eCMC information requirements.
