Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT) Support Group

The Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT) is produced by the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) to standardise identification of medicines for use within Australian electronic medicine management systems. A Support Group consisting of clinicians, jurisdiction representatives and computer system vendors meets regularly to provide expert guidance on relevant terminology issues.

As the AMT Support Group structure is changing to an open forum, an opportunity exists for interested individuals to participate in the ongoing development of the AMT. If you have a background in medicines management and are keen to be involved, please forward an expression of interest to [email protected] The next meeting (via teleconference) is scheduled for Wednesday 19 November 2014 11 am – 1 pm AUS Eastern Daylight Time.
