Queensland budget gives $154.7m boost to specialist outpatient strategy

The Queensland government has allocated an extra $154.7 million over two years in today's state budget to extend its specialist outpatient strategy, which includes work on an integrated electronic referral project and developing a platform so patients can book their specialist appointment online.

The strategy was funded to the tune of $361.2 million in the 2015-16 budget and has already achieved some goals, including giving GPs access to their patients' hospital medical records through The Viewer.
