NSW Health begins sending pathology reports to My Health Record
NSW has begun sending pathology reports from public laboratories in south-eastern Sydney, the Illawarra and the Children's Hospital at Randwick to the My Health Record, with western Sydney and western NSW to begin next month, followed by the Northern Territory.
NSW has already uploaded 4170 reports to the MyHR through its HealtheNet clinical data repository, which allows data to be shared locally and with the national system. In line with an agreement between the Commonwealth, the jurisdictions, the college of pathologists, NEHTA and the wider industry in 2014, the full pathologist's report is being uploaded as a PDF in a clinical document architecture (CDA)-compliant wrapper.
