Monash Health axes the fax for specialist referrals

Melbourne’s Monash Health will no longer accept faxed referrals to its specialist consulting services after July 18 following a two-year project to swap over to electronic referrals for GPs and other private specialists.

Monash Health has made all of its specialist consulting services available by eReferral using HealthLink’s SmartForms technology, which allows users of Best Practice, MedicalDirector, Genie and Medtech Evolution to write and send a referral within their clinical information system using pre-populated forms.

Correction: "South Australia is [planning to use] HealthLink’s FHIR-enabled interoperable system that will enable any ADHA standards-compl iant secure messaging service to send eReferrals".

This is not yet working, and I haven't heard when it is expected to be working.
