Project

originally posted by Research Admin on 24 February 2012 and updated 28 February 2014

Description

Electronic Patient File Transfer (or NZ-GP2GP) provides the basis on which patient records can be transferred between general practice practice management systems as structured data. The project entered its pilot phase, deploying GP2GP to roughly 65 sites around the country on 1 July 2011 and is now in general release.

GP2GP provides the capability to all general practices to electronically transfer their patients’ electronic medical records safely, securely and in a way that retains content and meaning when received by another practice.
