A.7 NEHTA Reference Group Meetings, July 2010 – Present
In July 2010, the Department of Health and Ageing requested NEHTA to undertake a consultation and engagement activity using its clinical leads and reference group members.
Since July 2010, NEHTA has arranged a number of reference group meetings and leveraged the experience and skills in each of its existing groups.
Each group has a mix of participants and includes clinical representatives, consumer representatives, state and territory representatives and representatives with other backgrounds.
NEHTA also periodically runs a series of roundtable sessions with specific groups, such as consumers, medical providers, nurses, allied health and ICT industry in order to review stakeholder specific issues.
NEHTA will continue to run reference group meetings and roundtable sessions throughout the length of the PCEHR Program.
