Revised legislative proposals for Healthcare Identifiers - Submissions
This page contains submissions received from the public consultation on the revised legislative proposals for healthcare identifiers, including the release of an exposure draft of the Healthcare Identifiers Bill 2010.
The Australian Health Ministers’ Conference agreed to a second round of consultations on the legislative proposals for healthcare identifiers being held so that a broad range of perspectives could contribute to making the legislation robust and effective.
Submissions were invited from interested stakeholders. The public submission process closed on 7 January 2010.
In total, 54 written submissions were received. Submissions are available with the permission of the author.
Submissions were forwarded to the Department in a range of formats including Word, RTF, PDF and handwritten or typed hardcopy. In order to make submissions available as soon as possible, most submissions have been published in their original format. Handwritten submissions have been scanned into PDF documents. The text of email submissions has been reproduced in Word format.
If you are unable to access any of the documents please contact the Department of Health and Ageing eHealth Branch on (02) 6289 3919 or email@example.com for an alternative version to be provided to you.
Submissions have only been published where permission has been granted by the author.
Note that general disclaimers in covering emails have not been interpreted as a specific request or taken as sufficient reason for submissions to be treated confidentially.
To ensure that the privacy of third parties (including family members) is protected, and that the Commonwealth complies with its own legal obligations, some submissions have been published with the submitter's first name only and/or with third party details removed. Private contact details (eg, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses) contained in submissions have also been removed. There may be minor formatting changes as a result.
NOTE: The views expressed in submissions are those of the authors and copyright in submissions remains with the authors, not with the Department.
