RACGP position statement: The use of secure electronic communication within the health care system

The majority of health services and government agencies communicating with general practice do not currently use electronic communication systems which are compatible with those existing in general practice.

The RACGP supports secure electronic communication as the preferred and default method of communication for all health services and government agencies communicating with general practice regarding patients.

These electronic communications should be usable by and satisfactory to general practitioners and general practice staff. The RACGP advocates that services communicating with general practice work towards implementing two-way secure electronic communication within the next three years.
