Telstra Health gearing up to add bowel program to National Cancer Screening Register

Telstra Health is working on transitioning the federal bowel cancer screening program to the National Cancer Screening Register over the next several months, with the register now fully operational for cervical screening and handling about 120,000 HL7 messages a day.

The last of the state-based cervical screening registers was closed a fortnight ago and all except a handful of laboratories are now sending results to the register electronically as HL7 messages that are compliant with the Australian standard.
