BACKGROUND: The Better Medication Management System (BMMS) is a national initiative to use information technology to bring together the fragmented medication record systems currently used in Australian health care. OBJECTIVE: This article provides a brief outline of the BMMS and some of its implications for Australia's general practitioners and their patients. DISCUSSION: The BMMS has the potential to assist in achieving significantly better health outcomes by providing current information to assist prescribing and dispensing decisions and by promoting more informed medication management partnerships between consumers and their doctors and pharmacists.
