Data Extraction Tools

Data extraction tools allow you to easily de-identify your electronic medical records and then share it with the CESPHN.  If you intend to participate in the new Quality Improvement PIP you must have a data extraction tool installed.  Contact  digitalhealth@cesphn.com.au to register your practice.  CESPHN supports either Pen CAT or POLAR. 

For instructions on how to remove a patient from your data extraction using POLAR click here or Pen  click here.
