Now Here Would Be a Great Briefing To Attend and Ask Some Hard Questions.

I was alerted to this gathering today.

AIIA Healthcare Briefing

“NEHTA progress report”

AIIA is supporting NEHTA in the introduction of better ways of electronically collecting and securely exchanging health information in Australian healthcare.

Today’s briefing is to have an update on the various initiatives on the NEHTA agenda that healthcare account managers in ICT companies need to be aware.

Lisa will provide an overview of the major projects, their progress and expected implement framework over the next twelve months. In particular, we have asked him (her ?) to give the outlook for Shared EHR. Lisa will also give information on jurisdiction and implementation issues and opportunities.

Our discussion will be on what companies need to be doing to be business ready to take advantage of the NEHTA developments.

----- End Announcement.

Sadly I won’t be able to attend but I am sure there are a number of readers who could drop in, have a coffee and ask the questions we would all like answers to.

These might cover just what the plans for the Shared EHR are, what is actually is, how it relates to the Person Controlled EHR so much beloved of the late National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission.

A question or two on when NEHTA expects some e-Health policy announcements might also be interesting.
