HealthLink’s FHIR-powered secure messaging system rolling out in South Australia

South Australia is live with the first phase of its statewide secure messaging service, which is using HealthLink’s Fast Health Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standard-ready system to allow clinical documents to be sent and received via secure message delivery (SMD) irrespective of messaging vendor.

It is being used initially to send discharge summaries to GPs from hospitals either using the Sunrise EMR from Allscripts or the legacy OACIS electronic ordering and diagnostic results viewing system, which is predominantly used by Country Health SA’s regional hospitals.

South Australia went to tender for the solution in 2019, with HealthLink chosen as the successful vendor in 2020. The solution will roll it out to the whole state to handle the exchange of clinical documents such as discharge summaries and eReferrals between the state's hospitals and GPs.
