Electronic Clinical Decision Support Technical Workshop December 2003
HL7 Australia, in conjunction
with HL7 New Zealand, held a two-day Technical Workshop on Electronic Clinical
Decision Support on December 11&12, 2003 (La Trobe University City Campus,
215 Franklin St., Melbourne, Australia). This workshop was an initiative
of the HL7 Australia / HL7 New Zealand Electronic Clinical Decision Support
Technical Committee. The Technical Workshop was sponsored by HL7 Australia,
HL7 New Zealand , the
Australian Department of Health and Aging
, the New Zealand Ministry of Health , the
Australian Quality and Safety Council (ACSQHC) and the Australian
National Prescribing Service (NPS) .
The primary focus of the Technical Workshop was
on therapeutic information resources, but diagnostics (pathology & radiology)
and preventative (immunization) resources were also considered.
Initially, this workshop was proposed as part of
an ITOL Grant
Application submitted by HL7 Australia to the Australian
National Office of Information Economy (NOIE).
However, there was general agreement that the Technical Workshop should proceed
prior to the outcome of the NOIE grant application. This approach also allowed
the involvement of a number of organisations / companies who were unable to
participate in the original application to NOIE, including those in New Zealand.
