Argus

Overview and Features

Argus enables health services to communicate securely and reliably, transmitting confidential information without risking privacy or care standards. It automatically imports documents and patient notes into the patient record within clinical applications.

Argus runs alongside existing clinical software, operating in the background and managing the complexities around security and transmission.

Argus has been used across Australia for over a decade, by health and human services organisations as diverse as hospitals, GPs, specialists, Medicare Locals and allied health providers.

These organisations use Argus for the secure transmission of:
  • eReferrals and letters
  • admission and discharge summaries
  • emergency department encounter information
  • health and event summaries
  • case notes
  • pathology requests
  • transcribed documents
  • images, reports and results
Argus uses national infrastructure and is compliant with Australian eHealth and privacy standards including:
  • National Health Services Directory (NHSD)
  • Secure Message Delivery (SMD)
  • eHealth Practice Incentives Program (ePIP)
  • HL7 and CDA message and document formats

 



COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE

The list of clinical software packages that have interfaces with Argus is constantly growing. Below is the current list of Argus-enabled clinical packages.

If your clinical software is not listed but uses Microsoft Word as its letter/report writer then it is usually suitable for interfacing with Argus, as long as the templates are editable.

Software vendors interested in developing interfaces so that their product works with Argus are encouraged to contact us.

If you do not have clinical software, but have Microsoft Word you can still use Argus to send and receive.
