The Australian healthcare industry is one step closer to fully adopting technology in health (eHealth), with healthcare providers successfully trialling electronic information transfer and sharing.

Five healthcare messaging vendors – Argus Connect, Global Health, Healthlink, LRS Health, and Medical Objects – collaborated with General Practices, the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) and associated government agencies to develop Secure Message Delivery (SMD) capabilities.

Lynden Crawford General Manager Medical¬† Objects: “The NEHTA SMD-POD enabled secure messaging vendors to expand their interconnectivity capabilities using a standards-based solution. It has been a pleasure to work with the technical staff of all the companies who participated in the POD. We were able to achieve test messages with every single one!

We look forward to open exchange with all of them and others on a commercial basis in the near future. The NEHTA POD team have been very supportive throughout the whole process and we look forward to future projects.
