Send Your Referrals Electronically for Free

Save time and cut consumable costs by sending your referrals electronically using Best Practice or Medical Director.

As from 16 October, Northern Health and Plenty Valley Community Health will be able to receive e-referrals. An e-referral is a document that can be sent electronically from one healthcare service to another, opposed to the current process of faxing or posting the referral.

Healthlink Smartforms e-referral solution is integrated within Medical Director and Best Practice and will streamline the completion and submission of electronic referrals. From your software programs, GPs are able to select a form, have it pre-populated automatically with data from the electronic patient record, have it validated and sent securely to the intended recipient, and receive an acknowledgement of receipt without the need to print and fax. A copy of the form will automatically be stored securely in the patient’s record.
