This article was originally published in Clinica
The Australian government has issued guidance for the national roll-out of its e-health system, HealthConnect. "Lessons Learned from the MediConnect Field Test and HealthConnect Trials" draws on the experiences over two years of 5,000 consumers and 300 healthcare providers, the largest trials ever of the system. A second document - "HealthConnect Implementation Strategy" - sets out the challenges facing the implementation of the system. HealthConnect will form a network of electronically stored health records containing patient information such as imaging and pathology requests, hospital discharge reports and prescriptions. Implementation has begun in Tasmania, South Australia and the Katherine region of the Northern Territory.
