Clinical Documents

Supports the continuity of care, and improve the interactions between healthcare providers and patients.

The Common - Continuity of Care end product has been archived. The remaining three components have been moved to Common - Clinical Documents.
These are:


eHealth diagnostic imaging reports containing one or more examinations or procedures may be uploaded by the diagnostic imaging provider to an individual's digital health record as a PDF.


Common documents for the secure point-to-point (P2P) delivery of clinical documents.


Event Summary documents are used to capture key health information about significant healthcare events that are relevant to the ongoing care of an individual.

Event Summary documents can be submitted to an individual’s digital health record by any participating organisation.


Personal health notes documents allow individuals to record health-related notes in their digital health record. These notes can provide a memory aid for individuals and their representatives. The notes are not visible to healthcare providers.


This document supports the Agency's detailed clinical model specifications and structured content specifications. It details a set of data types as a profile of the ISO 21090 data type specification.


ETP 1.1, published in December 2010, contributed to Standards Australia’s publication process, along with effort from the Agency subject matter experts working collaboratively within the IT-014 informatics community.


The Common - Consumer Entered Information end product component has been archived and the conformance points within that conformance profile have been republished in three different end products:


When a consumer registers for access to their Medicare information through their digital health record, the Department of Human Services will register the consumer’s Medicare documents in their digital health record which include the Medicare/DVA Benefits Report.


When an individual registers for access to their Medicare information through their digital health record, the Department of Human Services can register the individual’s Medicare CDA documents in their digital health record, including their Australian Organ Donor Register entries.
