Standard interim medication administration chart (IMAC)

A standard interim medication administration chart (IMAC) has been developed for use by all SA Health hospitals and health services when transferring patients to residential care facilities.

The standard IMAC will replace the individual hospital versions that are currently used. SA Health sites will phase in the introduction of the standard IMAC from August 2018.

The standard IMAC Clinical Guideline (PDF 545KB) will be provided in line with existing discharge procedures, and discharge medicines or prescriptions will continue to be supplied as appropriate.

A standard IMAC will help support patient safety through standardisation of documentation for patients who are transferred from hospital to residential care facilities. It will assist staff working across different sites and staff in residential care facilities receiving patients from multiple public hospitals.
