Data Exchange Update December 2021

Data Exchange Privacy Survey

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey on Privacy.

We received close to 1000 responses with some very helpful suggestions on how we can better support you and your staff when talking about privacy and consent with clients.

We will be working to implement some of these in the New Year.

Reporting Period

The July – December 2021 reporting period is rapidly coming to a close. On 1 January 2022, the additional 30-day period begins.

During this time, we ask that you submit your outstanding service delivery information and use the DEX Reports to QA your data and correct any errors.

Please note: the DEX Helpdesk becomes extremely busy during this time so allow plenty of time if you require their assistance.

Happy Holidays

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy and safe holiday period.
