National Deployment Committees

Special Presentation

  • The Australian Standards Landscape – current and future state (Joint presentation by Vince McCauley (IHE Australia) and Herbert Down (Australia Digital Health Agency)
  • Australia has tried to navigate the completing demands and approaches for standardisation over the past two decades, and to accommodate the needs of national programs such as Secure Messaging, the Health Identifiers, Health Services Directories and MyHealthRecord (a national Health Information Exchange based on products using IHE’s XDS profile). We have experienced challenges of achieving uptake and use of standards (along with national infrastructure) and compliance/conformance testing. We hope for discussion on approaches from comparable countries from colleagues representing international IHE deployment groups.
