It Seems That The NEHRS System Infrastructure Is Now All Complete And Operational. Wow!

The following appeared today:

PCEHR infrastructure finished

The national infrastructure for the PCEHR has been completed, with the final components allowing doctors to upload and view ehealth records.

Other pieces completed include the healthcare provider portal, and healthcare provider PCEHR registration.
More here:

You can - if you have the a NASH Credential (well actually any DoHA issued credential will work as NASH is still a few years away) log in and then access the records of patients who have said you can. (Of course how they have told you that is a bit hard to fathom just yet!)

For those lucky souls here is the URL:

I am just speechless with excitement and look forward to comments from a few lucky provider souls who can tell it how well it all works!

Among the other things apparently claimed are that:

“The components that will allow GP software to upload and view eHealth records has also been implemented.”

This seems all a little premature and untested at this point - to say the least! Anyway there is very little to look at if you do get to log in!

One really has to wonder just what is actually going on.

On that theme the NEHRS has always known me as DAVID MORE DOB XX/XX/1949.

When I popped on today suddenly I am DAVID G MORE (same details).

I was able to check back as I had a screen capture from the 7th of August that has the old name!

Also it seems the Audit Trail does not get retained or can't be displayed beyond about 20 entries - or the name change has done something - and earlier records are lost. The IHI is the same and all the data seems to be present.

So finished infrastructure that really isn’t and certainly has not been fully tested, names changing for no reason - It just gets better and better.
