Health service target processes

Health service: target processes

  • The baseline

  • Element 6.1

  • Allied Health – S2S single point of entry referral – screening of information takes place at this time

  • Obstetrics – telephone screening at time of referral

  • Consulting Suites – referrals are delivered electronically into the patient management system. Nurse notes electronic delivery, prints from system and sets aside for doctor to review. At this point evaluation of information occurs and clinics are contacted to clarify information

  • Elements 6.3 & 6.4

  • Review of OP services shows that referrals are closed within 30 days of requesting information. If the referral is close to 30 days in duration, telephone contact is made with the client

  • Challenges identified in changing the way things were done within the health service were having a standardised approach to the receiving and checking of referrals
