Electronic National Residential Medication Chart

The Commission has developed resources to support residential care providers and software vendors to implement and optimise their electronic National Residential Medication Chart (eNRMC) medication management systems.

Electronic National Residential Medication Chart (eNRMC) medication management systems will be used to electronically prescribe medicines in residential care facilities, without the need for paper prescriptions.

The Australian Government Department of Health engaged the Commission to develop these online resources. 

For residential care facilities 

The electronic National Residential Medication Chart Medication Management Systems - Guide and Workbook is for organisations looking to implement the eNRMC medication management system. The guidance can be applied to all types of residential care facility settings, whether you are a single site or part of a larger provider network.

The guide’s focus is on residential care facilities that wish to transition from a paper-based or hybrid (electronic and paper) medication management system to an eNRMC system.

For software vendors

The electronic National Residential Medication Chart Medication Management Systems - Software vendor information resource supports software vendors to identify opportunities for system enhancement, with the aim of delivering safer medication management and improved quality use of medicines.
