Victoria to roll out Health Information Exchange to link pathology data
The Victorian Department of Health has gone to market for a commercial off the shelf Health Information Exchange (HIE) to allow the sharing of pathology data across the Victorian public healthcare system.
The HIE will support DH’s pathology reform program of work, which intends to consolidate existing public hospital pathology services into a small number of pathology service networks, as well as its laboratory information systems (LIS).
There is also the potential for the HIE to be used for sharing other clinical information, subject to the passage of the Health Legislation Amendment (Information Sharing) Bill 2021, which is currently before Parliament.
