The Standards for Pathology Informatics in Australia (SPIA) and associated information models and terminology reference sets were officially endorsed by the RCPA Board of Directors as policy in January 2017, following internal and public review and endorsement from all of the main stakeholders. Please see the table below for the most recent version for each document. For previous versions, click here.
The main standards document is now known as 'Standards for Pathology Informatics in Australia (SPIA)', as the document now covers much wider standards for pathology informatics. It supersedes and incorporates the Australian Pathology Units and Terminology Standards and Guidelines (APUTS).
