The Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) has released a new minor release of its HIPS middleware product - HIPS v8.2. 


The Australian Digital Health Agency (the Agency) has released a new minor release of its HIPS middleware product:

  • HIPS v8.2

Key improvements

New Immunisation View for easy access on patient landing page

The Patient Summary landing page now displays a panel of immunisation data sourced from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) section of the patient's Medicare Overview, along with the ability to view the Immunisation Consolidated View (ICV) document when it is available in My Health Record.

New integrated Patient Management page for enhanced usability

The new Patient Management page has replaced the previous Advanced Search and Quick Search results pages. The functionality of both pages has been consolidated into the new page, and now enables users to search for patients, register patients, access relevant HIPS functionality for patients and manage adding and removing  patients from a user’s “My Patients” list on a single page. 

New site configuration option for improved control

This controls which page the View My Health Record menu item goes to in HIPS UI. Options include: PatientList or PatientSearch

For manually registered patients, this determines whether HIPS UI should generate MRNs automatically when registering patients or allow manual entry. This is configurable for facilities that do not have a PAS feed. 

Defect fixes and minor enhancements

Defect fixes and minor enhancements for HIPS UI and HIPS Core have been included in this release.

Who will this affect?

  • Public and private hospital organizations
  • Diagnostic service provider organizations
  • System integrators
  • Software vendors
