WA Health setting up panel of secure messaging vendors
The WA Department of Health's Health Support Services (HSS) is looking to set up a panel of secure messaging service vendors as part of a move towards an enterprise-wide mechanism for securely transmitting messages between public hospitals and healthcare providers, particularly GPs.
HSS has issued a request for offer to become part of the panel, which will involve signing heads of agreement with HSS and complying with a range of reporting requirements. Vendors must also comply with HL7 and secure message delivery (SMD) standards and specifications, and maintain a provider directory service.
