PBS hospital medication chart
The Commission produced the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme hospital medication chart (PBS HMC) to support the prescribing, administration claiming and supply of PBS and non-PBS medicines directly from the chart without the need for a separate paper prescription in hospital settings.
The PBS HMC aims to:
- Reduce the regulatory and administrative burden for health professionals
- Improve efficiency in hospital settings
- Improve medication safety by reducing medication transcription errors
- Improve the quality use of medicines.
