Due to the implementation by eHealth of extra security features – several subscribed resources were not working as they should. What are the problems?

Australian Standards - update
While users can view Standards – not all can be downloaded. Some downloads, accessible via Techstreet, are being blocked. We continue to work with eHealth to implement a security exception

Neofax and Pediatrics - update
Our subscription, accessible via Micromedex, is now being recognised for onsite access and is no longer asking you to login. If you have problems with access please let us know

TripPro - update
Our subscription is now being recognised as active for both on and off-site users – you will be asked to authenticate – use your HNEH Libraries membership # and password

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the disruption to our resources and continue to work on solutions. We’ll keep you updated on our progress

We hope the festive period brought you happiness and a well-deserved break. May the post-holiday period be a time of renewed focus and productivity. HNE Health Libraries looks forward to another year of shared achievements…
