Tasmania rolling out statewide eReferral system to private medical specialists

Tasmania is expanding its new statewide electronic referral system to private specialists from this month following a proof of concept trial with GPs and three hospital outpatient clinics last year.

The system has been built by secure messaging vendor HealthLink and Hobart-based eHealth firm Healthcare Software in close partnership with Primary Health Tasmania, the Tasmanian Department of Health and the Tasmanian Health Service.

The project has developed standardised, statewide digital templates that can be auto-populated with key referral details using HealthLink’s Smart Forms technology from within the Best Practice and MedicalDirector practice management systems and sent to hospital outpatients departments as well as between private practitioners.
