HIPS v7.2 Released



The Australian Digital Health Agency has released a new minor version of its HIPS middleware product:

  • HIPS v7.2

This release incorporates new functionality enhancements and defect fixes.

Key improvements

HPI-I relaxation for Pharmacist Shared Medicines List v1.1

Sites with HPI-I exemption can now upload PSML v1.1 documents without HPI-Is.

CSP certificates for all functions

Sites with large numbers of HPI-O certificates can now significantly reduce overheads by registering as a CSP organisation. A single NASH CSP certificate can replace potentially large numbers of HPI-O certificates.

IHI searches based on address

Sites without access to other IHI search criteria are now able to use a consumer’s address instead. Both Australian unstructured and international addresses are supported.

IHI creation for newborns

Newborns can now be provided with a verified IHI.

Applies to newborns less than or equal to 14 calendar days of age at the time of processing. Following creation of the IHI, users can directly proceed to assisted registration of the newborn with the My Health Record system.

My Health Record assisted registration for dependants

Dependants who are not on the same Medicare card as their parent/authorised representative can now be registered for the My Health Record system using the assisted registration process.

Who will this affect?

  • Public and private hospital organisations
  • Diagnostic service provider organisations
  • System integration vendors
  • Software vendors
