BreastScreen NSW sending results to GPs using secure messaging

BreastScreen NSW has begun a phased introduction of electronic delivery of BreastScreen results to GP practice management software using secure messaging.

BreastScreen NSW hopes that in future the vast majority of results, except for patients who have undergone a biopsy or who require surgical management, will be delivered directly into the GP's PMS if the woman has provided her GP's details.

I am shocked to learn that there are still Pathology or Radiology providers who are not sending their results electronically, BreastScreen NSW should be embarrassed by this lack of a simple and efficiency messaging capability. They should at least now be looking at leap frogging forward to atomised content and eOrders to build on what is already out there.

Why should they be embarrassed? The article states that they're implementing this capability.
