A new electronic referral process allowing GPs to refer their patients to My Aged Care directly from their practice management systems is now available. After an initial pilot and some improvements based on participant feedback, the new e-Referral form can be accessed from within Best Practice, MedicalDirector and Genie practice management systems.
The e-Referral form is easy to use and accessible through the patient’s electronic medical record.
By pre-populating patient information, the focus is on screening the patient, making it the quickest and easiest way to refer patients to My Aged Care. Once submitted, the e-Referral form is securely sent to My Aged Care.
