eRequesting and Advance care planning and My Health Record

On-demand recorded 22 Jun 2021

Electronic requesting, or eRequesting, enables pathology and diagnostic imaging requests to be transferred from your general practice clinical information system (CIS) directly to the pathology or diagnostic imaging provider via secure electronic communication. In this webinar, delivered in partnership with the Australian Digital Health Agency, we discuss how eRequesting works, how you can set up your practice to get started and how eRequests work with My Health Record.
The second half of this webinar focuses on managing and sharing Advance care planning documents in My Health Record. One of the challenges of advance care planning is ensuring an up-to-date copy of relevant documents are accessible to the treating doctors and better linkage with My Health Record could be a solution.
