Specifications are now available for identifiers, clinical terminology and secure messaging.
Foundations combine the basic technologies of unique identification, authentication and encryption to provide a safe and secure method of exchanging healthcare information.
With our partners the Department of Human Services (DHS) and through significant stakeholder consultation we have designed, built and now implemented the Healthcare Identifiers Service. Healthcare identifiers are essential for importing a patient's information into their My Health Record.
To ensure clear, unambiguous clinical communications between health IT systems the National Clinical Terminology and Information Service was established to develop a common, coded clinical language (clinical terminology).
To ensure the identity of people and organisations involved in each digital health transaction requires quality credentials. The National Authentication Service for Health (NASH) will provide this by issuing digital credentials, including digital certificates managed through a public key infrastructure (PKI).
Secure Messaging (SMD) specifications developed by the Agency are now published by Standards Australia. The Agency is supporting these specifications by providing a Compliance, Conformance and Declaration (CCD) scheme.
The Conformance Compliance and Declaration scheme has been established to support the delivery of a consistent, effective and sustainable conformity assessment approach for Australia's health IT sector, particularly where health IT systems interact with each other and the national digital health infrastructure.
