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.

HealthPathways monthly newsletters
The Health Resource Directory (HRD) for patients complements and continues to expand alongside HealthPathways.
HRD is a collection of easy-to-read health factsheets which have been formulated under strict clinical guidelines. Each factsheet includes information about local support and health services to further empower the local community. A local GP and the SWSPHN Community Advisory Committee has reviewed and endorsed each factsheet. The site currently features 183 health conditions, 29 health procedures, 21 resources people can use to manage their health, and 27 pages of information about improving your overall health.
HRD has a page to support people who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are self-managing during their isolation.
HealthPathways South Western Sydney is a joint project between the South Western Sydney Local Health District and the South Western Sydney PHN. The site is free to use for health professionals practising in South Western Sydney.
