ADHA to host national digital health infrastructure session

The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) is inviting stakeholders and potential partners to attend its informational session on Monday, 15 July 2024 at the Hellenic Club, Canberra, to learn more about its transformative vision for national digital health infrastructure.

“Digital health is not only about technology, but also about transforming the way we deliver and experience health care. By using data and digital technologies, we support improvement in individual health outcomes, easing pressure on the healthcare workforce, and supporting planning and ongoing investment,” said ADHA Chief Executive Officer Amanda Cattermole PSM.

“Digital health infrastructure that is fit for purpose and futureproofed means moving away from legacy systems and creating a contemporary, structured, data-rich ecosystem that can connect across healthcare settings in near real time in every corner of the country.”

Chief Digital Officer Peter O’Halloran said the information session will allow the sector to gain a deeper understanding of the Agency’s digital health infrastructure and the unified architecture that is needed to support connected health care.

“The Agency is committed to modernising the My Health Record system from a clinical document repository to a data-rich platform built on the international data exchange standard known as Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), to ensure health data can be seamlessly connected across all parts of the health system," O’Halloran said.

Following the establishment of a new API Gateway, and transition to cloud storage, the next step is to implement a new FHIR-based repository, which will allow storage of key records that form part of each consumer’s My Health Record, O’Halloran said.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback that will help us shape our procurement activities and market engagement approach.”
