Cirdan was delighted to be able to help Northern Pathology Victoria (NPV), the public pathology provider of Northern Health in Melbourne connect to the Australian Government’s My Health Record system.

My Health Record is a secure online summary of an individual’s health information and can be accessed by all Australians. Healthcare professionals can access the My Health Record system, operated by the Australian Digital Health Agency to view and add information about their patients such as shared health summaries, discharge summaries, prescription and dispense records, pathology reports and diagnostic imaging reports.

NPV is now able to send laboratory test results to the My Health Record system using HL7 messaging via the lab’s Laboratory Information System (LIS), Cirdan ULTRA.

According to Director of Diagnostic Services at NPV, Dr. Prahlad Ho there are significant advantages in having pathology results stored within My Health Record. Dr Ho said: “You can share results both with your GP or hospital-based healthcare professionals. Accessing your results immediately in the convenient My Health Record Platform will give clinicians a fuller picture of the patient’s medical history, aiding quicker diagnosis and treatment.”.

Australians are now more engaged in managing their health than ever before. The Australian Digital Health Agency reports that more than 3.8 million pathology reports were uploaded to the My Health Record system in March 2020, an 11 per cent increase on the number of February uploads. There are now nearly 43 million pathology reports uploaded to the system.

Dominic Saunders Head of Customer Support at Cirdan added: “We were really pleased to connect Cirdan ULTRA at NPV to the My Health Record system as uploading important pathology results will improve access for patients and doctors to a full health profile of the patient in a single location”.
