AAPM takes to the eHealth road
The Australian Association of Practice Managers (AAPM) has organised a national eHealth roadshow for practice managers and their staff, starting in Canberra on March 29.
The National eHealth Roadshow, sponsored by the National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA), will visit over 20 cities and towns across Australia giving practice managers the opportunity to see how they can get their practice eHealth ready.
AAPM national president Brett McPherson said practice managers were at the forefront of eHealth in Australia.
"Practice managers are considered the 'agents of change' within their practice and have the opportunity to not only improve the practice in terms of efficiency, but facilitate better care for their patients through eHealth." Mr McPherson said.
The roadshow will feature a number of seminars, including:
- National eHealth solutions and how they will work in practices
- How the Healthcare Identifier Service integrates with existing medical software
- How to register a practice with the HI Service
- The PCEHR and how this will affect practices.
NEHTA chief executive officer Peter Fleming said eHealth will change the way healthcare is delivered in Australia.
"The development of eHealth will involve timely and appropriate sharing of clinical information between patients, their individual healthcare practitioners and healthcare provider organisations.
"NEHTA is proud to sponsor this roadshow. This is a wonderful opportunity for practice managers and staff to get involved in this new era of healthcare delivery.”
eHealth advocates Jan Chaffey and Marina Fulcher, who are also AAPM members and NEHTA clinical leads, will head the roadshow from the end of March through to July.
