Consultation

Do nurses use these standards publications?

NZNO seeks your feedback on the following health information standards, which HISO sees as no longer fit for purpose, although we understand that nurses still use them. Are the indicated alternatives acceptable, and as useful, and are nurses aware of them?

1. SNZ PAS 8170: 2005 Primary Healthcare Practice Management Systems Relevant alternative standards include those related to interoperability, SNOMED and medications. Download this standard

2. SNZHB 8169:2002-Health Network Code of Practice This is effectively replaced by various other HISO standards, eg: HISO 10046 Consumer Health Identity Standard, HISO 10064:2017 Health Information Governance Guidelines, HISO 10029:2015 Health Information Security Framework. Download this standard

3. NZS 8153:2002 - Health records. This is effectively replaced by various other HISO standards, eg: HISO 10037 Connected Health (three sub standards) , HISO 10049 Videoconferencing Standard, HISO 10029:2015 Health Information Security Framework. Download the standard
