In this section, we will be looking at HealthPathways information regarding referral paths and best practice management of conditions.
HealthPathways is a web-based information portal, designed to be used at the point of care, primarily for general practitioners and other clinicians. In some regions access to HealthPathways may also be available to hospital specialists, nurses, allied health and other health professionals.
HealthPathways provides clinicians with a single website to access clinical and referral pathways, and resources. Each pathway is evidence-informed, but also reflects local reality, and aims to preserve clinical autonomy and patient choice. Pathways are created by local health professionals including general practitioners.
See Find my HealthPathways for the local HealthPathways site available in your region. Access to each HealthPathways site is restricted to that HealthPathways region’s catchment.
The HealthPathways Community enables HealthPathways teams across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to share knowledge, processes, pathways, and infrastructure.
