Expanding Electronic referrals at South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD)

Following the successful implementation of electronic referrals (eReferrals) at Prince of Wales Hospital, SESLHD is expanding eReferrals to other services and facilities.

eReferrals are electronic forms submitted by GPs/referrers via practice software or the MyHealthLink portal. eReferrals replace other methods of sending paper referrals such as fax or post.

Electronic referrals are coming to the below facilities and services between June and July. Further details to be provided.

Benefits of Electronic referrals

Referrals are sent, received, and managed electronically. Sending an eReferral instead of a paper or faxed referral has multiple benefits for referrers, including:

  1. eReferrals are integrated with HealthLink practice software and can be launched directly from the software.

  • Referrals are sent quickly and securely
  • Clinical information can be easily attached
  • Multiple fields are pre-populated with patient information
  • Completed eReferrals are saved against the patient record in your practice software

2. Referrers are notified via secure message of referral receipt, outcome, and triage category.

3. Improved visibility of services. Referrers can select from a list of outpatient services and clinicians.
