Global Health’s (GLH) connectivity solution ReferralNet has been selected as the secure messaging platform for Geelong Medical Imaging (GMI).
GMI will use ReferralNet Messaging to send electronic radiology results and reports securely to their Clients in the Geelong region.
The recent rollout of ReferralNet by the General Practice Association of Geelong (GPAG) now makes ReferralNet the common download agent for the majority of the GPs in the area. Streamlining the results download to one messaging provider will deliver greater efficiency to a GP practice.
According to GMI Practice Manager David Williams, the benefits of using ReferralNet were better than what other products offered.
“ReferralNet ticked all the boxes for us. With the Division’s involvement, more GPs now have the capacity to receive electronic results and reports from us. It also provides an efficient audit trail. Each message has a timestamp associated with it. With our previous messaging provider, clients had no way of tracking messages except by calling GMI. We had to regularly resend reports that have been sent, essentially adding unnecessary helpdesk service costs”, said Mr.Williams.
ReferralNet is an implementation of the vision and standards of NeHTA. Global Health is an Eligible Supplier for the PIP (Practice Incentive Program) eHealth Incentive.
