Automatic upload of data from hospital PAS to Medicare for newborn enrolments

The Department of Human Services (DHS) has completed a trial to streamline the enrolment of newborns for Medicare and the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register using data extracted from a hospital's patient administration system and transferred directly to a DHS online portal.

In what is thought to be an Australian first in linking basic data between a state hospital system and the federal Medicare system, DHS worked with the Digital Transformation Office (DTO) on the project, which took place at the Gold Coast University Hospital between April and July.
