Easy Registration with eHRSS for PPI-ePR Participants

 
Easy Registration

The Public-Private Interface – Electronic Patient Record Sharing Pilot Project (PPI-ePR) launched by the Hospital Authority (HA) in 2006, was a pilot programme for one-way sharing of patients’ health records in HA to participating healthcare providers in the private sector. With the Government’s launch of the Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS) in 2016 - a territory-wide information technology infrasturture for two-way sharing of patients’ health records between public and private healthcare providers, continuous efforts are made to facilitate PPI-ePR participants to join eHRSS as the former is planned for gradual phasing out as a pilot.

 
At the time of eHRSS’ launch in March 2016, there were around 400 000 patients enrolled in PPI-ePR. To enable PPI-ePR participants to continue sharing patient records and enjoy the greater benefits of two-way sharing brought by eHRSS, measures were introduced to facilitate them to conveniently join eHRSS.
 
In early 2016, invitation packages on easy registration with eHRSS were sent to PPI-ePR participants. The campaign was received with encouraging response. To further appeal to those who have yet to join, a second wave campaign will be launched in December 2018.
 
Under the new campaign, registration with eHRSS is even simpler and more convenient for PPI-ePR participants. Registration can be done in 3 simple steps –
 
1)SMS invitation
An SMS invitation will be sent to PPI-ePR participants (aged 16 or above and who have not registered with eHRSS)* via their mobile numbers registered in PPI-ePR. The SMS will redirect participants to the Easy Registration website.
 
2)phone numbers and PPI-ePR
Access Key numbers
At the Easy Registration website, participants only need to input their mobile phone numbers and PPI-ePR Access Key numbers to submit applications.
 
3)notification SMS
A notification SMS will be sent to participants’ mobile phones to confirm successful registration.
 
Alternatively, participants can choose to join eHRSS through existing means*, including:
i)   in-person registration at Electronic Health Record (eHR) registration centres;
ii)   online submission at the eHRSS website; or
iii)   submission to the eHR Registration Office via fax, post or drop-in box.
 
*For PPI-ePR participants under age 16, please register through existing means.
 
Participants are welcome to contact the PPI-ePR Programme Office at 3467 6220 for more details and enquiries.
