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
