ReferralNet and Argus achieve two-way interoperable secure messaging
Secure messaging vendors Global Health and Telstra Health have achieved a major breakthrough in health information interoperability, successfully exchanging encrypted clinical messages through their ReferralNet and Argus platforms to a number of different clinical software products and from different public and private sector organisations.
The two companies have been working together on making their systems interoperable for some time, achieving one-way interoperability from ReferralNet to Argus subscribers in October last year, and field testing messages sent from Argus to ReferralNet subscribers from in August.
The achievement is also a triumph for Victoria, involving the support of the Western Victoria PHN, Peninsula Health, Melbourne GP and former AMA president Mukesh Haikerwal, whose practice has been heavily involved in the trials, and RACGP eHealth committee chairman Nathan Pinskier.
