RHW antenatal shared care electronic integration of external pathology results

On 30 October 2018, the Royal Hospital for Women launched a pilot program to allow external pathology results ordered by general practitioners to be imported into the Cerner eMR. At this stage only results from Douglass Hanly Moir (DHM) will be imported.

This Code "RHWR/SCP" has to be used to enable results to be electronically imported to the Royal Hospital for Women Outpatients Department.

The pilot will run until March 2019 and will then be evaluated.

We would appreciate support from all GPs on our Shared Care Program to direct pathology to Douglass Hanly Moir and use the code "RHWR/SCP" on each order.

Once successful we plan to expand to other external pathology providers.

If you have any enquiries please contact Virginia Spear, Maternity Data Manager on 9382 6079 or email: Virginia.Spear@health.nsw.gov.au

Quick tip

Save code RHWR/SCP in your RHW contact / address list so this will automatically appear on the “copy to” field of the pathology form.
