GP care plans open to hospital clinicians through Western Sydney LinkedEHR

Hospital-based clinicians are being provided with a read-only view of a patient's GP-generated care plan through NSW's Cerner electronic medical record as part of Western Sydney's Integrated Care Demonstrator.

Patients are also set to be encouraged to self-manage their condition through one of several apps being developed by the project, one of three being funded through the NSW government as part of its $120 million Integrated Care strategy.

I think if they don't use an eHealth-ready clinical system, the Government would prevent them accessing Medicare payments until they do. John Lewis eHealth Researcher UNSW
