Tasmania building statewide eReferrals system to be linked to My Health Record

Primary Health Tasmania (PHT) has issued a request for proposal for a statewide eReferral system that will initially facilitate electronic referrals between GPs and specialists and in future integrate with Tasmanian hospital systems and deliver eReferral letters to the My Health Record.

PHT, Tasmania's primary health network (PHN), is working with the state Department of Health and the Tasmanian Health Service on the project, which is expected to be trialled early next year and will manage the authoring, transmission, receipt and management of eReferrals in Tasmania through an end-to-end electronic workflow.

I use HealthLink in Tasmania and despite dysfunctional core EMRs (in and out) I am able in many cases to send the HealthLink communication within 5-10 minutes of the initial consultation and even less with follow up encounters. Last week I tested an eReferral which was created and sent in less than 90 seconds. Some Specialist have HL connectivity.
Affirmation of receipt of communication has been as short as 10-15 seconds!
