Thank you for all your hard work to get people accurate and quick test results. As the cold and flu season approaches and testing continues, districts should inform GPs of test results for ongoing health management and support.
The updated PAS and documentation of the clinical encounter will ensure the correct flow of pathology results into HealtheNet and on to the My Health Record, for timely access by the nominated GP. If a person has withdrawn consent to My Health Record, the pathology result will be uploaded to HealtheNet, and only be available to NSW Health staff. An alternate arrangement will be required to ensure the nominated GP receives the person’s result.
Districts requiring further assistance with eMR and PAS matters can contact Lyn Packer, eHealth Clinical Applications Services.
Please contact COVID-19 clinics for further information.
