The National Inpatient Medication Chart (NIMC) is a standardised tool for communicating patient medication information consistently between health professionals. It is based on standardised processes for medicines prescribing, dispensing, administering and reconciling in health service organisations.

A national, standard medication chart ensures that health professionals are familiar with the layout of the chart and the safe medication management principles on which it is based no matter where they practice.
