Secure Messaging v1.0.3

Secure Messaging v1.0.3

The Agency’s Secure Messaging provides software developers with information and tools to assist in the implementation of Secure Message Delivery (SMD) and Endpoint Location Service (ELS). Information for healthcare providers wishing to use secure messaging is available at Secure Message Delivery.
Through collaboration between NEHTA and the software industry, Standards Australia published Australian Technical Specification (ATS) 5822 E-Health Secure Message Delivery (SMD) in March 2010.
ATS 5822 is supported by the following foundational specifications which are common to other eHealth solutions, including Electronic Transfer of Prescription, the My Health Record system, and the Healthcare Identifiers Service:

  • ATS 5821 E-Health XML Secured Payload Profiles
  • ATS 5820 E-Health Web Services Profiles

The above publications are available via http://infostore.saiglobal.com/store/.
Implementation and test tools for secure messaging are contained in the Secure Messaging Integration Toolkit.
