1000 Queensland GPs sign up for portal to access hospital medical records

About 1000 Queensland GPs have registered to access their patients' hospital medical records through a portal into Queensland Health's The Viewer system since it went live in late June.

Part of Queensland's $361 million specialist outpatients strategy, designed to reduce waiting lists and improve information sharing between acute and primary care, the GP access to The Viewer (GPTV) project allows GPs to see a summary of their patients' diagnoses, test results and medications while they are being treated in hospital.
