Hospital clinicians set to trial mobile app for My Health Record
The Adelaide-headquartered IT consultancy that first developed the Healthcare Identifiers and PCEHR Services (HIPS) technology that has been used to connect public and private hospitals to the My Health Record has developed a new mobile app for the system that is about to be trialled in the field by hospital clinicians.
Chamonix, which has offices in Darwin, Brisbane and Melbourne as well as Adelaide, has flown under the radar somewhat despite being contracted by NEHTA to develop HIPS, a piece of middleware that has been used by the majority of states and territories to hook up their hospitals to the national system, back in 2013.
HIPS has also been used by five private hospital groups to connect their facilities, and is available as an open source version for vendors not yet compliant with the system to get on board.
