Australian Medicines Terminology Browser
The Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT) is a rigorously structured terminology for standardising the names, component parts and interelationships of medicinal products registered for use within Australia. The AMT was developed by the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) in conjunction with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Further information on the AMT can be obtained from NEHTA. In particular, people and organisations who are registered and licensed with NEHTA's National Terminology Service may obtain a far more powerful, standalone AMT viewer as well as the data files for the AMT terminology.
Further information on the medications in the AMT can be obtained from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.
To search or browse the Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT) database, enter your search words in the text box above. You may constrain your search from the pull-down selection menu to find the type of medication in a particular category. Healthbase will return a list of matches. From here you can click on the any of the returned results for further details of the medication entry. A '%' may be used as a wild card to match any combination of 0 or more characters. Thus, for example entering %glucosam will return any entry in the terminology containing the word fragment glucosam, within the constraint imposed by the pull down list.
