ADHA no longer subsidising free access to IT-014 health informatics standards

Free access to dozens of standards developed by the IT-014 health informatics committee between 2004 and 2014 will no longer be subsidised by the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA), the agency has confirmed.

ADHA has been funding Standards Australia to provide free access to the standards online at the eHealth standards website and through Standards Australia's distributors.

No wonder there are no graduates coming out of mainstream IT and Computer Science courses with any Health Informatics experience, and have to be taught on the job. As a HISA member sometimes looking for implementation assistance, finding programmers who know anything about health records is almost impossible.

Luckily FHIR is going down the open access path... in future things may be different.

Right behind Keith's comments - open standards are the best way to success on many levels. I would refer folks to
Australian Diagnostics and Referral Messaging - Localisation of HL7 Version 2.4 2018 for material that encapsulates and extends the scope of AS4700.1, 2 and 6 written by many of the same people responsible for the Standards Australia publications.
