New eHealth “learning centre” goes live – 11 May 2012

“Health Minister Tanya Plibersek today launched an online “learning centre” which details how the Gillard Government’s new electronic health record system will work for patients and practitioners.

Ms Plibersek said the launch of the website came after the Government made a $233.7 million investment in the Budget to continue the rollout of the eHealth record system, which is being designed to modernise the way health services are delivered, making them safer and more efficient.
“eHealth will deliver benefits to Australian patients as it will ensure health practitioners are able to access their medical histories in one convenient location, reducing errors and making diagnosis and treatment quicker and easier,” said Ms Plibersek.

From 1 July 2012, interested Australians will be able to register to create a personal eHealth record. The website explains how eHealth will be further developed over time.

Ms Plibersek said the new learning centre will inform and educate the public and healthcare professionals about eHealth and the personally controlled electronic health record system in the lead up to the July launch.

“This website will help people discover how eHealth can help streamline their interactions with the health system, as well as assist doctors and nurses learn about the new system, saving them time and effort once it is up and running.”

“The learning centre includes click-through modules tailored for the public and healthcare professionals, and case studies illustrating how eHealth records will benefit people in a variety of settings.”

Ms Plibersek said content will progressively be added to the site and encouraged patients and practitioners to continue to check for updates.

“Patients and practitioners can also register via the site to be kept up to date on all the eHealth news.”

“The NEHTA Blueprint is a reference document intended to familiarise readers with major e-health capabilities that NEHTA is promoting for national adoption.

The Blueprint brings together and summarises the key design documents from across the NEHTA work program into a single document, explains how they fit together and how they fit within the broader strategic direction.

The Blueprint covers a range of capabilities including identifiers for individuals, providers and organisations, authentication, secure messaging, clinical terminologies, supply chain, pathology requests and reports, diagnostic imaging requests and reports, medication management, referrals and discharge summaries. The Blueprint is a living document and will be periodically updated as the NEHTA work program evolves.

This Blueprint is intended for an audience that is actively working in e-health. Potential readers include executives, policy officers, clinicians and technical staff.”
