Service Registration Assistant – update clinician/service info in one place, publish to many (NNSW)

The Service Registration Assistant (SRA) is an eHealth NSW and Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) initiative designed to improve the accuracy of health service contact information and streamline administrative tasks for health service providers.

Overview

The SRA is a proof of concept pilot currently underway in Northern NSW. It is designed to provide a single point of data entry for your practice, service and clinician details. No more having to update multiple places every time a new clinician joins the practice.  Update in the SRA and your clinician and practice information will be sent to the external services you wish to update!

Easy checkboxes give you full control of external services you want to automatically ‘publish’ your information to, including Northern NSW LHD, secure messaging services like HealthLink and Argus, the NHSD, and more.

The SRA is designed to:

  • Increase accurate delivery of hospital discharge summaries to clinicians – inaccurate contact information is a key cause of discharge summary delivery failure.
  • Provide up-to-date practice and clinician information to secure messaging services and pathology providers.
  • Increase the accuracy of clinician and practice information held by external services you choose to advise. The National Health Services Directory and other information portals, for example, can be on your list of external services to publish to, making you easier to find for new patients.

Over 50 practices and 180 clinicians in Northern NSW are already using the SRA, resulting in significant improvements in data quality and electronic communications between practices and Northern NSW LHD.

The SRA can be used by general practices, AMSs, allied health practices and specialists.

Pilot evaluation commences in July 2020, but you can still register at any time.
