HIMAA 2021: Victoria rebooting digital health design authority as HIE takes shape

The Victorian Department of Health (DH) is re-establishing a digital health design authority to help manage its digital health roadmap, one of the key focuses of which is the roll out of a health information exchange (HIE) to securely store and present clinical information to support patient care across the public healthcare system.

DH has already established a laboratory information system design authority called LISConnect to support an HIE for sharing pathology results across the state. This will see the multiple Victorian Public Health Services (VPHS) pathology services consolidated into three new Victorian Public Pathology Services (VPPS), with funding provided through the LISConnect program for the implementation of an integrated LIS and HIE.

Would private Radiology & Pathology providers be able to connect to this HIE as well and would that be through incentive or legislation?
