Australian Digital Health Agency seeking information on diagnostic audiology reports

Assistance required: Australian Digital Health Agency seeking information on diagnostic audiology reports

The Australian Digital Health Agency is developing a diagnostic reporting specification for the electronic exchange of diagnostic reports. An aspect of the Agency’s work is to support the exchange of diagnostic audiology reports.

The Agency is seeking assistance with the following questions:

(1) Are there best practice report guidelines currently in use by audiologists?

(2) Are any terminologies in use or endorsed e.g. SNOMED CT?

(3) To what degree are diagnostic audiology reports created using specific provider format and content as decided by the audiology clinic/organisation?

(4) Are any diagnostic audiology organisations working on a common report format to facilitate improved interoperability?

(5) Are exemplar reports or templates available for diagnostic audiology reports that can be shared with the Agency?

The Agency would greatly appreciate if redacted diagnostic audiology reports (patient demographics and clinician details removed) could be made available to them as this enables the Agency to determine if their information models accommodate real world diagnostic audiology reports produced by audiology groups.

Interested members who would like to provide assistance to the Agency can send their feedback, comments and/or any exemplar reports or templates, or redacted diagnostic audiology reports to feiya.zhang@audiology.asn.au.
