Australian Medicines Terminology

Healthbase has provided an online AMT browser to help people explore the Australian Medicines Terminology, which is a key component of Australia’a national e-health infrastructure. NEHTA‚Äôs own distribution of the AMT is difficult to download and explore for casual users. NEHTA has made no attempt to give curious or non-technical people an easy way to find out what is, and just as importantly, what is not provided by the AMT. This online AMT browser is an attempt by Healthbase Australia to remedy this shortcoming.

Please note that this blog is not an endorsement of the Australian Medicines Terminology in its current form. The AMT is a useful step, but until the missing pieces are supplied, and until the implementation obstacles are acknowledged and addressed, it will likely be a long time, if ever, before it is incorporated into most mainstream health applications in Australia.
