Queensland Health goes to market for integrated referral management solution

The Queensland government has issued tenders for an internal and external eReferrals solution and an online service directory for referring doctors, two key elements of the state's planned statewide integrated Referral Management Solution (iRMS) program.

The intent is to allow GPs to submit referrals electronically to speciality outpatients clinics through their practice management software or from HealthPathways, by 2020, with the first implementation to go live this year, along with an internal patient referrals and tracking system for use within hospital and health services.

iRMS itself is a key element of the $361 million Specialist Outpatient Strategy launched in September 2016 to tackle outpatient waiting lists, which has already seen GPs given online access to their patients' hospital records.
