EHR Repository

EHR Repository


The repository aims to provide easy access to evidence based research on Electronic Health Records in Australia to assist in the development of policy and strategy at local / jurisdictional levels in the health system.

Papers cover a broad range of topics including: architecture, security, privacy, ethics, legal, case studies, policy, implementation.


To create and maintain a repository of evidence based research on electronic records in Australia.

To be included in the repository, the nature of evidence provided in the literature has to give prominence to electronic records including systems for management of records and processes for transition towards electronic storage and/or sharing of records.

Papers included in the repository must either:

  • use Australian data
  • be relevant for Australian development
  • be Australian case studies

Please note that papers by Australian authors or affiliation to an Australian University is not sufficient reason to be included in the repository. Where multiple papers are published on the same research project only the most comprehensive paper is included. At this point in time the repository does not include reports but may do so in the future.


While every effort has been made to include all relevant papers, we would be grateful for feedback on papers which may have been inadvertently overlooked. Please email the repository with a PDF copy of the paper.

This project is an initiative of the Digital Health Research Centre at Flinders University, Adelaide, SA.
