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.
An Endoscopy eReferral pilot has begun with St. Vincent's Hospital and the first referrals have been processed and responded to. This specialist referral comprises all the fields of the general referral form with additional detail to facilitate triaging for Upper and Lower GI procedures.
The form is designed to be quick and easy to use from within GP practice software or on the HealthlinkOnline portal. St. Vincent’s will send a triage response within 5 working days of receipt of referral.
When the pilot phase is complete, the service will be made available to all hospitals nationwide.
