RMMR's


Residential Medication Management Reviews. Under the Fourth Community Pharmacy Agreement, the new RMMR program encourages collaboration between pharmacists and general practitioners and allows for greater continuity of care for eligible aged care residents.

RMMR services may be conducted either by a pharmacist (pharmacist RMMR) or in collaboration with a GP (collaborative RMMR).

The referral and participation of a GP is required for a collaborative RMMR.

RMMR payments will be made as a single prescribed fee applied to each eligible RMMR service.The prescribed fee is set at a rate.To become an approved RMMR service provider, an RMMR service agreement must be in place.

An RMMR service agreement is an agreement between a prospective RMMR service provider and an aged care home, for the provision of RMMR services and associated quality use of medicines (QUM) services. All Australian Government funded aged care homes are eligible to obtain access to RMMR services. The approved RMMR service provider is responsible for ensuring that the contract entered into with the aged care home constitutes a valid RMMR service agreement. The approved RMMR service provider ensures RMMR services are conducted by an accredited pharmacist who is able to respond appropriately to GP and aged care home requests, and that such services adhere to recognised professional standards. The agreement may be terminated by the aged care home or the approved RMMR service provider with 30 days prior written notice.
