Intrahealth Australia implements new Secure Messaging standard (SMD)

With the support of the Australian Digital Health Agency, Intrahealth Australia has successfully implemented the latest Australian standard for secure messaging. The functionality is seamlessly integrated into Intrahealth's Profile EMR and facilitates fast, reliable and secure messaging between providers. The new capabilities include:

  • Enhanced searching across multiple secure messaging provider providers by using a federated provider directory service
  • Interoperability and message exchange with different secure messaging enabled software products by utilising standardised messages
  • The ability to securely exchange messages based on current and future Australian encryption standard

The Secure Messaging (SMD) functionality has been tested by the Australian Digital Health Agency and will be released in Profile Version 8.5 scheduled for December 1st 2020. A topic sheet will be available on Intrahealth's support site detailing how to set this up.
