To support the adoption of an electronic National Residential Medication Chart (eNRMC) by June 2023, the Department of Health and Australian Digital Health Agency are putting in place an eNRMC Transitional Arrangement which will allow all Residential Aged Care Services (RACSs) to begin adopting and benefiting from eNRMC solutions from 1 July 2022.
Telstra Health has completed development of the new MedPoint module within our Medication Management solution, which will deliver a conformance tested and compliant eNRMC.
What is MedPoint?
MedPoint is an enhancement to Telstra Health’s existing Medication Management solution. It is a new module designed to meet the government’s eNRMC changes in residential aged care and add further improvements to Medication Management.
By using MedPoint:
- GPs can easily and efficiently create and update a resident’s medication chart electronically, reducing the potential for errors caused by handwritten charts.
- The manual process of sending medication charts to the pharmacy will no longer be required. When a GP updates a resident’s medication chart, the pharmacy can access this electronically.
- RACSs are compliant with all eNRMC government requirements.
