eHealth brings together the technologies of unique identification, authentication and encryption to provide the foundations and solutions for the safe and secure exchange of healthcare information.

Our Work


Health information for a patient is currently distributed across a wide range of locations including their general practices, hospitals, imaging centres, specialists, and allied health practices.

The eHealth record system — launched in June 2012 — is an electronic record for a patient that contains a summary of their health information. It is a key element of the national health reform agenda around making the health system more agile and sustainable.

With the introduction of the eHealth record system, healthcare organisations will have faster, easier access to more health information, creating a more efficient system, making continuity of care easier and improving treatment decisions.
