HealthPathways

 

HealthPathways is an online clinical and referral information portal used by clinicians at the point of care. HealthPathways provides GPs access to management and treatment options on a range of clinical presentations and information about local clinical services and their referral processes. 

The site uses a scalable format allowing users to customise the level of detail displayed, providing a quick access during consultations or more detailed information to be viewed at a later time.

Links to reputable patient information (including translated patient information where available) and clinical resources are also provided in most clinical pathways.
