Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record System Operator: Annual Report 2012-2013

3.1 Policies and processes

Page last updated: 10 April 2014

DoHA is responsible for policy that supports the operation of the eHealth record system. A collection of policies, which continue to be developed and reviewed, are available to staff undertaking duties to which the policies relate, including officers of DHS.

These policies were developed in consultation with NIO, DHS, NEHTA and affected stakeholder representatives as appropriate.

Information derived from these policies is gradually being included on the ehealth website where it will be of value to the public.

Guidance material for the public, healthcare providers and other participants is also available on the website. Material includes guidance on what the system is, how to register and how to use the system.
