are the current application capabilities:
General shared EHRs
Specific Chronic Disease Management Programs
OnLine Hospital Reporting and
Images on Demand (IOD)
This is the core application the enables the secure
sharing of event summary data from health care
events. These include event summaries from GPs,
diagnostic reports and hospital discharge summaries.
Chronic Disease Management Programs
Patients with specific chronic diseases may be
participants in customised programs for the different
diseases. These diseases (patients groupings)
have their own data sets and requirements for
details of treatments and results (EHRs).
Smart Health has implemented the Cystic Fibrosis
program in Victoria and has a Renal program in
development. Diabetes, Oncology and Asthma are
expected to follow.
The chronic disease programs are subsets of general
Hospital Reporting (HCP Reporting)
Based on the Commonwealth Grant funding a unique
application has been developed that allows private
hospital to report patient treatment details online
to DVA. Commercially this is only a minor application
but it is required by most private hospitals that
service DVA patients and provides an easy entry
point for Smart Health.
on Demand (IOD)
The Smart Health application also supports the
availability of diagnostic images on demand. Currently
only angiograms are supported however all image
types will be supported in early 2004.
