National E-Health Transition Authority Limited (NEHTA)

The National E-Health Transition Authority Limited (NEHTA) is the lead organisation supporting the national vision for e-health in Australia; working openly, constructively and collaboratively with consumers, providers, funders, policy makers and the broader healthcare industry; to enable safer, higher quality, accessible, equitable, efficient and sustainable healthcare.

NEHTA was established by the Australian Commonwealth, State and Territory governments in 2005. It aims to develop better ways of electronically collecting and securely exchanging health information, to:

  • improve the quality of healthcare services, allowing clinicians to more easily access accurate and complete information about their patients
  • streamline the care of people with long term illness, who need to be looked after by many different health professionals, by enabling seamless handovers of care through for example electronic referrals and discharge summaries,
  • improve clinical and administrative efficiency, by standardising certain types of healthcare information to be recorded in electronic systems; uniquely identifying patients, healthcare providers and medical products; and reforming the purchasing process for medical products, while maintaining high standards of patient privacy and information security.

    Stakeholders are invited to see the forthcoming Healthcare Identifiers (HI) Service up close at the Model Healthcare Community (MHC) demonstration which was developed by the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) in association with Medicare Australia and the support of the governments of Australia. It enables stakeholders to see a demonstration of the HI Service and what it means for use in the real world such as with discharge summaries, pathology and medications management.
