The NSW Health Engage Outpatients program
NSW Health is delivering state-based eReferral forms delivered by Healthlink as part of the Engage Outpatients program. eReferral forms offer a digital solution for primary health care clinicians to refer into NSW public outpatient clinics and services. Digital referrals will facilitate the delivery of referrals to appropriate outpatient services and improve referrer and patient experiences.
General Practitioners (GPs) and other primary care referrers (e.g. Optometrists) will have the ability to send electronic referrals from their practice management software, or a web-based portal, to selected NSW Health outpatient clinics. Referrals will be received for processing and triaged in the electronic Referral Management System (eRMS).
