Aged Care providers are eligible for the eNRMC (eNRMC Adoption Grant Opportunity) funding that will assist the costs associated with implementing a compliant eNRMC solution that will support the future of medication management in aged care.

A webinar hosted last week by The Department of Health outlined a funding program scheduled to commence in July 2022. The Department is encouraging early uptake and has indicated that there will be three rounds over two and a half years, with the funding allocation between $7,000 and $22,000 based on your location and status.

The electronic national residential medication chart (eNRMC), an initiative by the Australian Digital Health Agency and the Department, will deliver e-prescribing to aged care homes and improve medication management and safety practices.

BESTMED was among the key software providers that collaborated with the Agency and the Department on the eNRMC trial, which assisted in identifying the benefits to aged care homes in implementing the eNRMC. BESTMED was the largest participant in the trial, with 46% of aged care homes using the BESTMED platform.
