LinkedEHR, developed by WSPHN, is an electronically shared care plan that connects patients’ clinical records with members of their multi-disciplinary team (MDT). The care plan is created by a GP for patients with a chronic disease and is based on the diagnoses held in the GP’s Clinical Management System (CMS).
LinkedEHR records goals, targets, referrals and activities for each and all diagnoses so patients will receive the right level of care required to manage their chronic condition(s). The referred activities are updated by the recipient in real time and GPs see all updates.
LinkedEHR, HealthPathways and the PCEHR/My Health Record are integrated to provide many clinical management and referral resources to support the goals and activities for each patient’s care plan.
Integration with Western Sydney LHD is currently taking place to give amongst many other features, direct access to a patient’s care plan via Cerner – the hospitals’ Electronic Medical Record (EMR); to send from LinkedEHR comprehensive NEHTA standard eReferrals to WSLHD hospital clinics and dashboards for Care Facilitators.
