Gold Coast general practices using Smart Referrals can seek free and timely advice from Gold Coast HHS specialists.
Gold Coast Health was one of the first HHSs in Queensland to go live with this new functionality, with Gold Coast GPs embracing the opportunity.
Two hundred and twenty five of the State’s 400 Requests For Advice being actioned by Gold Coast HHS specialists.
Gold Coast HHS specialties providing advice include paediatric medicine, voluntary assisted dying, gynaecology, diabetes and endocrinology, breast surgery, infectious diseases and interdisciplinary persistent pain service.
The Request For Advice function through Smart Referrals has the potential to save time and unnecessary specialist outpatient appointments.
With the patient’s consent, GPs send questions through Smart Referrals. The specialist responds to this request within five business days. The response is then documented at both the hospital end and GP end, for efficient continuity of care.
