PCEHR registrations reach two million
Consumer registrations for the PCEHR have reached the two million mark, with the latest statistics from the Department of Health showing that 2,015,624 consumers have now signed up.
As of midnight on Wednesday, December 17, the figures also show that 7600 healthcare provider organisations are registered, including general practices, pharmacies, aged care facilities and hospitals.
The number of shared health summaries uploaded is still lagging considerably, with only 38,207 SHSs on the system.
However, the number of discharge summaries uploaded has reached 85,960, along with 7083 event summaries.
There are currently 1,056,788 prescription and dispense records held in the National Prescription and Dispense Repository (NPDR).
In terms of views of the system, in the week of December 4 to 10, consumers viewed their records 8485 times, but clinical views were very low during the period, with only 560 clinicians viewing the PCEHR that week.
