Wave 2 eHealth Sites
29 Mar 2011News
Personally controlled electronic health records (PCEHR) moved a step closer with the announcement of an additional nine eHealth sites to drive the development and implementation of the Government’s PCEHR program.
More than $55 million has been allocated to second-wave eHealth sites, which will enable the progress of key elements of the national PCEHR system and provide for the delivery of eHealth foundations in practical settings.
The successful applicants include individuals, partnerships and consortia across Australia including urban, rural and regional communities.
They will target priority consumer groups, including parents and babies, Indigenous people, people with chronic and complex diseases, children, people with disabilities and the aged.
The Minister also announced the outcomes of the successful national e-health conference held in Melbourne last year, which have been released through the National e-Health Conference Report. The conference provided an important opportunity for collaboration between clinicians, health consumers and the IT industry around the design and implementation of a PCEHR system.
