Digital platform launched to upload vaccination data to MHR

A new digital platform will enable healthcare professionals to upload COVID-19 vaccination records to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). The Clinician Vaccine Integrated Platform (CVIP) will support the Australian Government’s COVID-19 vaccination program, which commenced in February. The platform provides the technology needed for vaccination providers to meet their legislative requirements to report the vaccinations to the AIR.

Agency Chief Digital Officer Steve Issa said CVIP is expected to be useful for vaccination providers who do not currently have digital systems in place to report to the AIR. NT Health was the first jurisdiction to use CVIP in its Alice Springs vaccination clinic. The Agency is having discussions with other jurisdictions about how CVIP might be used at clinics in other states and territories, while they upgrade their clinical systems to meet the new AIR reporting legislative requirements.

Vaccination information reported to the AIR is automatically uploaded to My Health Record. The latest upgrade to My Health Record included a consolidated immunisation view, enabling people to see details of all immunisations, including their first COVID-19 vaccine and the next vaccination due date. Immunisation history statements are also available from Medicare Online and the Express Plus Medicare Mobile app.

Complementary mobile apps, Healthi and HealthNow, also provide new ways to understand and use the information on My Health Record, and make better informed decisions about staying well or managing health conditions. Both apps allow people to view My Health Record and their immunisation status.
