Since 1997 Hunter Medicare Local has been instrumental in rolling out a clinical messaging system (Medical Objects) which will create an infrastructure of enormous public value. The project is connecting hospitals, specialists, GPs and allied health clinicians working within the Hunter New England Local Health District and its surrounding areas.
This project has provided immediate benefits to the delivery of health care to our community. Where consultation summaries were once faxed or posted, they are now sent electronically and integrated into the patient’s electronic record at the recipient end. Medical Objects is a point to point secure system and uses a three level acknowledgement system that ensures summaries are received securely. Electronic transmission is fast and timely, and has also reduced clerical overhead costs for clinicians.
