NEHTA at HIC 2015

The National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) is proud to be showcasing a number of new eHealth services at the Health Informatics Conference (HIC) 2015.

In July, NEHTA launched three new eHealth services for healthcare providers and software vendors – an automated application tool for healthcare providers to use when registering for eHealth; an eHealth training service enables healthcare providers to familiarise themselves with the eHealth functions in their software; and the new Conformance, Compliance and Declaration (CCD) process for software vendors.

Visit the NEHTA stand (Number 12) to talk with NEHTA staff about how you can use these services to connect to and use eHealth.

In addition NEHTA has the following sessions scheduled during HIC 2015:
