Supporting integrated care
Discharge medication information added to HealtheNet Clinical Portal and My Health Record.
NSW Health has reached an important milestone in supporting integrated care, with enhanced functionality of its HealtheNet Clinical Portal now enabling patients’ discharge medication information to be viewed by other healthcare providers via the national My Health Record.
Live at all local health districts, HealtheNet gives NSW Health clinicians instant access to patient information including hospital medical imaging results, pathology results, medication information, discharge summaries, community health summaries and alerts and allergies.
And, as of 25 November, HealtheNet is now integrated with iPharmacy and is feeding data showing medication dispensed on discharge from selected NSW Health facilities into My Health Record.
In addition, HealtheNet now provides all NSW Health clinicians with access to the National Prescription and Dispense View in My Health Record, which includes prescription records from GPs and dispense records from community/retail pharmacy nationwide.
“This is a significant achievement – by sharing this additional medication information, NSW Health is helping to support all healthcare providers involved in a patient’s care,” said Julie Cashin, Program Director, HealtheNet and Integrated Care, eHealth NSW.
“HealtheNet saves time for clinicians as they don’t need to chase up important information and in an emergency it can make all the difference.”
South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead are the first sites to begin sharing dispensed medication records from iPharmacy with HealtheNet and My Health Record.
Other local health districts will follow suit in the wake of the successful integrations at these sites.
