Secure messaging vendors testing FHIR API for federated directories

The Australian Digital Health Agency is holding a connectathon next week for its secure messaging technical working group, which is working on plans to test a federated directory search capability using a FHIR application programming interface.

ADHA secure messaging program manager Sari McKinnon told the RACGP eHealth forum in Melbourne last week that the working group was planning to develop a seamless way to look for healthcare provider information across a range of different vendor directories using a FHIR API, with good progress made so far.

ADHA is sponsoring two proof-of-concept trials for multi-vendor secure messaging, one led by Telstra Health and one by HealthLink, testing the safe transmission of messages between secure messaging services, clinical software systems and different provider organisations.
