The Australian Digital Health Agency is a partner in the Sparked Program, Australia’s first FHIR® Accelerator. Working alongside CSIRO, the Department of Health and Aged Care and HL7, the program aims to advance health data interoperability in Australia by accelerating the creation and use of national FHIR® standards in health care information exchange. 

Sparked is a community comprising government, technology vendors, provider organisations, peak bodies, practitioners, and domain experts.

We invite you to be part of a pivotal moment by contributing to the Australian Core Data for Interoperability (AUCDI) Release 1 which has been made available for community comment.

Your expertise and insights are invaluable, and feedback can be made by Friday 8 March 2024. We seek your feedback on:

  1. Data Structure: Enhancements or modifications needed for the specified information models and data elements.
  2. Usability: Alignment with existing information models.
  3. Interoperability: Challenges or opportunities during implementation.

A webinar was held on February 28 outlining an update on the progress of AUCDI and allow you an opportunity to ask questions about the content. Details for this event are available via Confluence.

To help you review and comment, a short introduction video on AUCDI Release 1 Draft for Comment has been made available via Youtube.

To provide feedback on the AUCDI Release 1, please visit the Sparked Confluence page to review the draft AUCDI Release 1 document and share your feedback via the form by Friday 8 March 2024.

Your input will shape the future of health data exchange in Australia. Let’s ignite the spark together!
