Health information for new humanitarian arrivals
From 1 May 2018 health services that provide on arrival care to people arriving through the Australian Humanitarian Programme may access the Department of Home Affairs’ health database, Health Assessment Portal (HAPlite).
HAPlite contains health information collected by the Department of Home Affairs prior to a person arriving in Australia, i.e. information collected during Immigration Medical Examination and for some people a Departure Health Check.
Following registration with the Department of Home Affairs, health services may access client records with a ‘HAP ID’ that should be provided by the referring Humanitarian Settlement Program or the Department of Social Services. HAPlite enables health service providers to view complete health examination reports and download records including x-ray image files.
