Redefining Health Information Exchange with Australia's first FHIR-native data platform

The redefined Health Information Exchange (HIE) platform creates a more open, cohesive and vendor-neutral environment, making it easier for healthcare systems to communicate and collaborate effortlessly. 

Telstra Health’s HIE, powered by Smile Digital Health’s FHIR first Health Data Platform, provides a centralised database for storing and managing electronic health information and clinical data from across various sources within and outside of a healthcare organisation. Built entirely on FHIR-native technology, the solution enables healthcare professionals to readily access a patient’s information and entire care journey from one solution. 

With Australia choosing HL7 FHIR as its healthcare standard, the partnership supports the mandatory sharing of key health information across care settings. Governments and organisations within the public and private sectors can now benefit from the only scalable FHIR-native Health Data Platform, supported by modernised architecture, which works with all HL7 FHIR resources.
