About NEHTA

Purpose and Vision

Leading the national vision for Australia's eHealth future. The National E-Health Transition Authority (NEHTA) is the lead organisation supporting a national vision for eHealth for Australia.

Our Purpose:

  • To lead the uptake of eHealth solutions of national significance for Australia
  • To progress and accelerate their adoption through the health system

Our Vision:

Enhance healthcare by enabling access to the right information, for the right person, at the right time and place. We work collaboratively with consumers, healthcare providers, the healthcare industry, the information and communications technology industry, policy makers and funders towards a safe, secure and efficient health system that will deliver better health outcomes for all Australians.

The National E-Health Transition Authority is jointly funded by the Australian Government and all State and Territory Governments.

Our Strategy

With the foundations built, the infrastructure in place, and the national eHealth record system in operation, NEHTA's focus is on further driving adoption, change and meaningful use, creating a critical mass of users – GPs, pharmacists, specialists, hospitals – who are connected and embedding NEHTA foundations and solutions.
