Northern Sydney begins sending patient letters to GPs electronically

Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) has become the first LHD in NSW to begin sending patient letters to GPs electronically through the state's HealtheNet portal.

General practices using the HealthLink, Argus or Medical-Objects secure messaging services who are also receiving hospital discharge summaries electronically will already be set up to receive the new letters directly in their clinical software.

Wow, only 10 years behind the rest of the sector, now when will we see a patient portal?

Does this include HealthScope Northern Beaches Hospital?

No, that hospital doesn't use a Cerner eMR.
