The Commission developed the NRMC for the Australian Government. It was designed to improve medication safety for residents in aged care settings, and to minimise the administrative burden of prescribers, aged care staff and pharmacists when ordering, administering and supplying medicines.

The Commission tested the NRMC in more than 20 aged care homes during 2013–14.
