e-health

e-health is the electronic collection, management, use, storage and sharing of healthcare information. This information can include individual items such as referrals, test results, discharge summaries, vaccination history, medication history and diagnoses, to comprehensive medical records.

e-health systems that can securely and efficiently exchange data can significantly improve how clinical and administrative information is communicated between healthcare providers. As a result, e-health systems have the potential to unlock substantially greater quality, safety and efficiency benefits. e-health has the capacity to benefit all Australians – individual consumers, healthcare providers and organisations.
