Eastern Melbourne PHN calls for fax to be axed by 2025 as it ramps up eReferrals

Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (EMPHN) has seen the volume of electronic referrals being sent by GPs to local hospitals and health services increase from almost nothing to 1000 a month in the last two years and hopes to see all referrals sent electronically within five years.

The PHN is part of the Victorian eReferrals project, along with Austin Health, Eastern Health, Banyule Community Health Service and Carrington Health Service, that is using BPAC's SeNT eReferral and HealthLink's SmartForms eReferral technologies to allow GPs to electronically refer from within their clinical workflow.
