Software developers in focus at Health-e-Nation
The PCEHR and role of software developers will be explored in a one-day workshop held at the upcoming CHIK Services Health-e-Nation Conference on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
Titled PCEHR: End to End, the conference on March 27 will help software developers understand their role within the overall PCEHR project, said Sally Glass, managing director at CHIK Services.
“We’re at a critical stage of the health IT and health reform journey,” said Ms Glass. “This component of the Health-e-Nation conference is focused on both software developers and healthcare providers, and managing their interactions with the PCEHR.”
The vendor specifications and initial release of the national PCEHR infrastructure are slated for late March. The release of these specifications will help vendors that have begun working with NEHTA to test the infrastructure ahead of the July launch.
Ms Glass also noted CHIK Services views the July 1 public launch of the PCEHR as a starting point, rather than an end point for the health reform and health IT journey.
“The intent of the conference,” Ms Glass said, “is to stimulate thinking about the overall ehealth reform journey Australia is undertaking.”
The software developer conference is the first day in the three-day event hosted by CHIK Services in conjunction with NEHTA and the Department of Health and Ageing.
