Overview

eHealth is one of the most significant technology changes to affect medical practices. This session is for Practice Managers who are required to lead progressive change in their practices.
We aim to give you the skills and resources to get your practice eHealth ready and your team seeing the benefits that this new era of technology will bring.

Many practice staff currently spend a significant amount of time chasing patient information. Information is not available when the doctors need it. Phone calls, faxing and scanning is common.
Learn how to eliminate this chasing of information and streamline communication among health professionals. With the eHealth record system you can receive up-to-date information about your patient’s health to supplement the information you receive directly from other healthcare providers.

In this session you will learn how the eHealth record system works, how to register and how to make the most of the technology that includes:

  • Medical History
  • Medications
  • Allergies
  • Discharge Summaries
  • Immunisations
  • Referrals
  • Specialist Letters
  • MBS History
