A ground-breaking new e-referral service called SR Specialists & Referrals has launched in Victoria and Tasmania.
The free service sees the Medical Specialists Directory available online and integrated within HealthLink’s software so GPs can seamlessly search, select and e-Refer to any private specialist in the directory.
The trusted directory is used by most GPs to search for private specialists and will still be available in hard copy to give GPs a choice of how they’d like to view it.
The service is available to GPs using the two main practice management systems (PMSs), Medical Director and Best Practice via HealthLink.
Similarly, specialists can receive the e-Referrals via their HealthLink account.
