Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) is pleased to announce the go live of an additional 13 HealthLink e-Referral SmartForms to Ambulatory Care services at Concord and Royal Prince Alfred Hospitals.
From October 13th 2021 General Practice referrals using HealthLink SmartForms can now be made directly from Best Practice, Genie and Medical Director Practice software platforms to the following services:
Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
Hand Therapy (Allied Health service)
This takes the number of SLHD services accessible via e-Referral to 58 with more services being connected in the coming months. For an up to date list of services accepting e-Referrals, visit the CESPHN Digital Health website. Updates have also been made to a number of existing e-Referral SmartForms, making specialist selection easier including the use of information pop-up boxes to identify sub-speciality selection for more direct referral and triaging.
Moving into 2022 the SLHD GP e-Referral Project will be introducing e-Referral for Fertility, Gynaecology and Maternity Services at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in mid-February with other sites commencing shortly afterwards.
SLHD would like to acknowledge the support provided by the CESPHN Digital Health Team and Executive in this exciting project to enhance patient referral and response processes.
