Victoria developing statewide indexing service for health information exchange

A devolved governance model and multiple health services at different stages of digitisation with different electronic medical record vendors means Victoria has struggled to link information across the public health system thus far.

In pursuit of the state's Health 2040 vision of person-centred health and wellbeing, the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is keen to change all that, working on a project to develop a statewide digital health identifier that functions as an indexing service to align local health service medical record numbers (MRNs) with the national Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI).
