Secure Document Transfer Project

Project Status: 

While Secure Messaging for external referrals into the Metro South Health Central Referral Hub is now available, other Metro South Health referral pathways that operate outside of the Hub do not currently allow General Practitioners to send referrals using Secure Messaging technology. Example of referral pathways that operate outside of the Metro South Health Central Referral Hub include: Addiction and Mental Health Service referrals as well as emerging referral pathways for Nurse Navigator roles. 

This project aims to explore techinical solutions (as an alternative to fax, email or post) where this relates to secure communications between Metro South Health and external referrers such as General Practitioners.

Aims & Goals: 

The Project aims to deliver an analysis of (and recommendations for) the secure and efficient transmission of referral information for the following Metro South Health services:

  1. Addiction and Mental Health Services
  2. Specialist outpatient departments
  3. Nurse Navigator roles
