Telstra Health has upgraded its community health and primary care services platform Communicare to help enable the tracking and tracing of patients receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.

Consumers using the Telstra Health’s HealthNow app can also get access to their immunisation status through their mobile device if they have enabled access to their My Health Record on the app.

The latest versions of Communicare are also compliant with the new active ingredient prescribing rules that became mandatory on February 1. Version 19.2 of Communicare now enables PBS and Repatriation PBS (RPBS) prescriptions to include active ingredients.
