Help create data sharing standards

Aged care stakeholders are invited to join the national accelerator Sparked.

Aged care stakeholders can get invovled in the initiative focused on accelerating the development and adoption of standards for sharing healthcare data, the program lead tells Australian Ageing Agenda.

CSIRO has been funded by the Department of Health and Aged Care to deliver national FHIR – Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources – standards over the next two years to improve the accessibility of real-time health information.

Getting the information right within the record, means clinicians enter the data once and it can then be used multiple times across the system, the CSIRO’s Kate Ebrill – national lead of FIHR accelerator program Sparked – told AAA.

Ms Ebrill, spoke to AAA on the sidelines of the aged care sector’s recent Technology Across Care Conference, where following her presentation, more than 50 stakeholders signed up to Sparked.

Here she explains more about the accelerator program and getting involved:
