Create an Event Summary

Bp Premier can produce an Event Summary that can be uploaded to My Health Record for a patient.

Download Guide

An Event Summary captures key health information about significant healthcare events that are relevant to the ongoing care of an individual. It can contain allergies and adverse reactions, medicines, diagnoses, interventions, immunisations and diagnostic investigations.

Event Summaries are intended for healthcare providers to record information relevant in the context of the national eHealth record, where there is no existing form of communication exchange, such as a Shared Health Summary, Discharge Summary, or Specialist Letter.

When should I upload an event summary?

Event Summaries should be uploaded when the provider believes the information contained will be of value to other healthcare providers for the continuity of patient care. An event summary may detail a consultation about a minor ailment, a clinical intervention, or a Home Medicines Review, for example. The Australian Digital Health Agency has more information on Event Summaries and the difference between Shared Health Summaries and Event Summaries.

Who can upload an event summary?

All Bp Premier users with a HPI-I recorded in Provider Details are able to author and submit Event Summaries to a patient’s My Health Record. This includes users in the category 'Practice Nurse'.

The practice, the patient, and any providers and contacts associated with an event summary must have a validly formatted email address to submit an event summary to My Health Record.
