NEHTA Implementation Resources: PCEHR Overviews, Guides & Conformance Material v1.4 and PCEHR Integration Toolkit v1.2 - August 2015 Release

Published 13 August 2015

NEHTA is pleased to announce the release of updated Assisted Registration conformance materials and the PCEHR Integration Toolkit.

Assisted Registration Conformance Materials

Healthcare provider organisations have established relationships with patients and, as part of providing treatment to a child, healthcare providers make decisions about a person’s authority to act on behalf of a child. An additional policy requirement approved by the Department of Health, based on stakeholder feedback, is to allow healthcare organisations to support a person’s assertion of parental responsibility.

NEHTA has now updated the Assisted Registration conformance materials to support this.

The documents below have now been updated and supersede previous versions:
