Help practices get ready for pathology report uploads to My Health Record

28 October 2019

Australian Clinical Labs, Capital Pathology, Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology, Hobart Pathology, Launceston Pathology and North West Pathology are able to send pathology reports to the My Health Record when they receive an eOrder from practice software.

Participation by doctors with eOrdering will improve data quality with pathology laboratories.

Medical practices looking to get ready for their patient pathology reports going to My Health Record should:

  1. Be using either:
    • Best Practice - Lava SP3 and later, or
    • Medical Director - 3.17.2 and later.
  2. Connect with My Health Record system if not already participating. Some pathology labs need the patients’ Individual Health Identifier (IHI) from their practice software to be able to upload pathology reports to My Health Record. Doctors will need to have e-orders enabled for this to apply. Contact the lab if eOrders need to be enabled in their PMS.
  3. Contact the lab to initiate uploading of pathology reports to the My Health Record system for their patients.
