Concept of Operations: Relating to the introduction of a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record System
4.2.3 Downloading and printing clinical documents and views
The PCEHR System permits users to download and/or print any clinical documents and views they are authorised to access. Downloaded information can be supplied either in PDF format or a standards conformant electronic format, where available, for loading into the organisation’s local electronic health record.
Users should only download and/or print information required to support the delivery of the individual’s care or to ensure that medico-legal integrity requirements are addressed. Once information has been downloaded and/or printed it becomes subject to the organisation’s local health information management policies and laws applicable to the organisation.
All downloaded and printed clinical documents and views need to be clearly marked with the date and time of download/printing.
