Child Digital Health Record (CDHR) 5-14 years

Extensive consumer and clinical surveys are out in the field, with people completing questionnaires as well as qualitative interviews. Led by the Northern Territory and Western Australia, the outcome of these surveys will determine what clinical information needs to be collected to maximise health outcomes in these formative years.

We have set up a committee consisting of paediatricians and other community child health experts to assist us with decision-making. We will report the findings of the research to this group, which will guide the data collection decisions they will make.

This is an exciting step in the process as collating this information, along with the previous years’ history, will provide longitudinal health information for each child in Australia. This will improve children’s health outcomes by identifying issues earlier, improving relationships with healthcare professionals and encouraging young people to take ownership of their own healthcare information.
