NSW Health Pathology to send negative COVID-19 results by SMS

Patients in NSW are being given the opportunity to receive their COVID-19 pathology results on the same day via text message in a collaboration between NSW Health Pathology, Amazon Web Services, Deloitte Australia and Microsoft.

The automated SMS solution has been trialled in the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District and Wollongong, Shellharbour and Shoalhaven fever clinics and will be rolled out to other NSW facilities in the next few weeks. Western Australia introduced a similar service last month.

Why not just remove the block to people seeing their results on their My Health Record as soon as they are available. 90% of Australians already have one. There are several apps that can display it for them. I am sure LabTestsOnline can help with the interpretation. Steve Hambleton
