Digital health support

Digital health technologies contribute to improving health care quality and outcomes by facilitating effective information management, communication, decision making, better care coordination and more continuity of care. 

The Australian digital health environment incorporates several digital infrastructure and technologies at national, state, regional and organisation levels. Brisbane South PHN’s Digital Health team is continually working to support improved efficiency, effectiveness and quality of health services by adopting new technologies, providing digital health education and fostering collaborations among the health professionals in the region. 

What has changed?

The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) and Services Australia replace the NASH certificate process on 13 March 2022. All SHA-1 National Authentication Service for Health (NASH) certificates expired and health service organisations needed to apply for a new SHA-2 NASH certificate.

More than 95% of practices in the BSPHN region have already transitioned to the SHA-2 NASH certificate.

The My Health Record is an online summary of an individual’s health information that can be shared securely between the patient and authorised healthcare providers involved in their care.

The digital health team supports general practices to collect, analyse and utilise their clinical data

The Digital Health team is here to support all healthcare organisations with a range of digital health technologies and programs.
