The entire NZ Medical Specialists Directory is now live within Medtech 32 for Doctors to search and refer patients to private specialists.
The service was presented to GPs at the GP Conference in Rotorua at the beginning of June and was well received by GPs and practice staff. Specialists & Referrals is being actively used by doctors nationwide. We welcome your feedback and suggestions re: future improvements to this service.
The NZ Medical Specialists Directory gives you access to up-to-date contact details for specialists and also new specialists. With this information now in Medtech you no longer have to update your Medtech address book for private specialists.
Some of the key points that will be of interest to Doctors are:
- Directory is integrated with pre-populating referral form (you can select consult notes, diagnostic reports, documents from attachments manager…)
- Print handy patient information sheets with specialist contact details and profiles
- Create your own shortlist of Frequently Used Specialists & set your default region for searching
- Attach Photos to your referral
- Send referrals to all specialists – electronically (when specialist opted to receive referrals electronically) or print to fax or post
- Referral is written into your Medtech Outbox & you can view Specialist Acknowledgement of referral
- You can do a practice referral – find Mickey Mouse Specialist
- You do not have to be subscribed to ManageMyHealth to send referrals, if you are subscribed then patients can also access their referrals
- New electronic referral service is secure and free to all GPs and Specialists
