Seminar on secure messaging for allied health and specialists
The Victorian branch of the Australian Association of Practice Management (AAPM) is organising a seminar next month for specialist and allied health practices on using secure messaging services to connect with GPs.
The seminar will be held in Melbourne and broadcast live by video link to sites in Geelong, Warrnambool, Ballarat and Gippsland.
AAPM Victoria state president Brett McPherson said the aim of the seminar was to provide all potential users with practical information on how secure message delivery (SMD) can be set up in a practice and be used for better patient and business outcomes.
Mr McPherson said it would help practices gain an understanding of secure messaging and why it is important, how secure messaging works and how it provides the foundation for further eHealth initiatives.
Presenters will include representatives from the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA), secure messaging service provider Argus (HealthConnex), AAPM and practices using SMD.
Expert representatives will then take part in a panel discussion and a Q&A session. Delegates attending the regional sites will also be able to participate.
The main session will be hosted from the Telstra building on Exhibition St in Melbourne, with other sites including Berwick, Ballarat and Traralgon.
The event will be held from 1pm to 4pm on Friday, February 27. See www.aapm.org.au/Education-Events/Events-Calendar for more information.
