About HIPS

HIPS is middleware which enables the seamless integration of Digital Health systems with national Digital Health infrastructure services, such as the Healthcare Identifiers Service (HI Service), the My Health Record system.

HIPS offers standards-based interfaces to simplify the connection with systems like patient administration systems, clinical information systems, and laboratory and radiology information systems. It is aimed primarily at supporting large-scale Digital Health environments typically found in organisations such as hospitals and diagnostic service providers, however, it is also suitable for direct integration with Digital Health products.

There are a number of key business flows that occur within Digital Health in Australia. The following diagram displays HIPS interfacing between Hospitals & Healthcare providers with the national Digital Health infrastructure.
