Mercy Health Update
Mercy Health is accepting eReferrals for Specialist Outpatient Services via HealthLink from 16 November 2022.
eReferral will streamline the submission of referrals to Mercy Health by auto-populating important data such as medical history and medications from your practice management software and guiding you through Victorian state-wide referral criteria for each specialty. Each eReferral form will include a link to HealthPathways* Melbourne to provide GPs with quick access to evidence-based referral advice.
Benefits of eReferral via HealthLink:
- eReferrals via HealthLink are already embedded into most GP practice software, making the transition simple and cost-free for most general practices.
- HealthLink provides assurance that eReferrals are securely transmitted to Mercy Health, protecting your patient’s privacy.
- Referrers are immediately sent notification of receipt when their referral is received by Mercy Health.
Practices without HealthLink compatible software can register for a MyHealthLink portal licence by completing the online registration form and notate in the comments field that you would like to use eReferral (SmartForms). Registration can be completed at https://au.healthlink.net/au_registration/.
For further information about referring patients to Mercy Health Specialist Clinics using HealthLink, please contact Caitlin Shaw (email@example.com), Katrina Szucs (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sharon Tijssen (email@example.com).
