The National Healthlink Project provides a web-based messaging service which allows the secure transmission of clinical patient information between Hospitals, Health Care Agencies and General Practitioners. The project has been in operation since 1995 and has developed considerably since that time to its current status as national messaging broker.
The remaining three specialities in Kerry General are now accepting referrals electronically:Gynaecology, Rheumatology & Plastic Surgery. The other departments that are available are Audiology, Cardiology, Dermatology, Diabetes, Ear Nose & Throat, Endocrinology, General Medicine, General Surgery, Medicine for the Elderly, Neurology, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Renal. Healthlink GPs automatically have the ability to send these; if you are not already registered with us, please click on the Apply link or contact us on 01 8821721.
Healthlink are piloting a number of new services at present. A pilot of laboratory results from Sligo and Letterkenny labs has begun. The objective of this project is to migrate the transmission of lab results previously delivered through the local ELR system, to Healthlink. This pilot began on a phased basis on Monday 23rd June 2014. We are also running a pilot of CareDoc out-of-hours reports with a group of local GPs. Again, this project is a migration from the local Southeast GPEL system. Finally, we are piloting CervicalCheck smear test results from the National Cancer Screening Service. When we receive sign-off from the group, we will make this service available to all users nationally.
