NEHTA to outsource National Authentication Service for Health
The National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) has launched a request for tender process “to deliver the design, build and operations of a National Authentication Service for Health (NASH).”
NASH has been a core component of NEHTA’s work program since the organisation’s inception in 2005. However its failure to deliver a service that facilitates healthcare providers authenticating to emerging national e-health services risks undermining the progress it has made with its secure messaging initiatives and scuttling the prospects of the mooted Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record being delivered in 2012.
Tender submissions are required by 13 October.
