SafeTech PDF Print E-mail

This project funded by the Commission developed guidelines for the safe use of electronic clinical handover tools. The primary contract for SafeTECH was awarded to the South Australian Health Department in collaboration with UNISA.
The eHSRG work for the Commission on the SafeTECH project was divided into two parts:

  • Part A involved the provision of consultation services in the form of support and advice to colleagues from the University of South Australia (UNISA) responsible for the 3 case study/fieldwork sites.
  • Part B involved the preparation of deliverables to serve two main functions. Firstly, to support the SafeTECH project in ensuring any guidelines developed for assisting in the assessment of electronic handover tools are explicitly cognisant of the work of the NEHTA. Secondly, to communicate these deliverables to NEHTA to support their potential incorporation into its conformance, compliance and accreditation program.
