Pilot program using secure messaging to alert GPs about medium risk COVID patients

Two primary health networks in Melbourne are helping to pilot a program in which patients assessed as medium risk of hospitalisation if contracting COVID-19 will have their GPs alerted by secure messaging.

The pilot program is being implemented by Eastern Melbourne PHN and North Western Melbourne PHN to allow consumers assessed as medium risk by Healthdirect Australia’s call agents to consent to have an outcome of their clinical risk assessment sent via secure message as a notification to their GP.
