Healthcare Identifier Service v1.0
One of the key foundations for a national approach to eHealth is a standard process across the health sector to consistently identify everyone involved in a healthcare event:
- Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI) for individuals receiving healthcare services
- Healthcare Provider Identifier – Individual (HPI-I) for healthcare providers and other healthcare personnel involved in providing patient care
- Healthcare Provider Identifier – Organisation (HPI-O) for organisations that deliver healthcare (such as hospitals or medical practices).
