Submissions to the PCEHR review panel

As several submissions to the panel charged with reviewing the PCEHR have now become public, Pulse+IT has compiled a table of documents from expert groups and industry organisations who have answered the call for comment.

The deadline for submissions to the PCEHR review panel was Friday, November 22, with the panel due to report back to Health Minister Peter Dutton in mid-December.

This table will be updated as new submissions are released, and we've also provided as an extra resource links to previous submissions made by the various organisations. These include the calls for public comment on the draft PCEHR concept of operations in 2011 and the 2012 Senate Community Affairs Committee inquiry into the legislation for the PCEHR Act.

If your organisation has made a submission to the review panel, feel free to email it to us for inclusion in this table at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
