Queensland gives GPs online access to hospital records through The Viewer

Queensland GPs can now access their patients' hospital medical records with the launch of a new health provider portal (HPP) that links securely to Queensland Health's The Viewer web-based clinical application.

Part of the state's $361 million specialist outpatients strategy, the idea is to provide GPs with read-only access to a summary of diagnoses, pathology and diagnostic imaging results, and medications prescribed and administered while the patient is being treated in hospital.

Definitely a step in the right direction that will be to the benefit of the patient; particularly those with chronic conditions.
