GPs and Primary Healthcare Day Two: Thursday, 1 October 2020

Thursday, March 26th, 2020


10:30 AM Keynote Presentation: Using Automation to Simplify and Improve the eRerreral Process for General Practices

Since 2017, Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network collaborated with three major health services (Eastern Health, Austin Health and Northern Health) to develop and roll out the integrated HealthPathways/eReferral solution across 275 general practices in the region. This solution allows GPs to send electronic referrals that are auto populated from their clinical information system, creating more seamless experience for patients. With 13,000 eReferrals received via this tool by the end of 2019,

learn how to:
  • Educate GPs around the value of using software effectively to get the most out of their referrals, help them shift out of old habits like faxing and address technical issues around the new technology
  • Use the tool to increase staff and patient satisfaction, improve appointment times and the referral process, and empower GPs to make informed clinical decisions using HealthPathways based on data
  • Adapt the tool across hospitals and clinics for improve patient outcomes
