Concept of Operations: Relating to the introduction of a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record System
3.3.3 Changes to organisational arrangements
In cases where one organisation is acquired by or merges with another organisation, ongoing access to the PCEHR System is dependent on the status of the merged organisation’s HPI-O7.
If a merged organisation retains their existing HPI-O as part of the merger process, then the merged organisation will retain access as per their existing arrangements.
If a merged organisation retires their HPI-O and creates a new one, then the access will be based on the participation status of the new HPI-O and it may be necessary to re-register and re-obtain authorisation to access an individual’s PCEHR.
