South Western Sydney ready for go-live with GP-ED real-time data project

South Western Sydney PHN is gearing up to go live in five general practices and three emergency departments with its pioneering iRAD interoperability project, which is using Allscripts' dbMotion solution to deliver relevant patient data in a concise view within clinical workflows to ED clinicians and GPs.

The project is using FHIR-based APIs developed by Victorian firm Oridashi to extract a minimum data set from GP systems Best Practice and MedicalDirector and deliver it through dbMotion to EDs, as well as a dbMotion API to extract data from electronic discharge summaries held in the My Health Record to deliver concise information to the GP desktop.

I think this kind of information sharing could open up a new front of patient privacy fears. I'm guessing patients treat their GP as a personal relationship and tell them everything, while the big scary hospital with its hundreds of faces is given only what they need to know. Very different healthcare providers when looking at it from the patient's perspective.

SWSPHN have taken privacy and consent issues seriously and have undertaken legal advice regarding these issues. A privacy impact assessment has been completed and provided to the vendor, we have recently issued a Participation Agreement for all our Pilot sites to complete ahead on implementation (and will be required ongoing) this agreement requires the clinician to comply with the various legislative requirements. The model we chose is OPT in therefore the patients have the right to decline their information being shared and the clinician records this in their CIS
