Mater Specialist Quick Find

SmartForm referrals 

GPs are now able to refer to the Mater public outpatient department and Mater Mothers' Hospital antenatal clinic electronically using HealthLink SmartForms.

Referring to Mater using HealthLink SmartForms is an extension of Mater’s referral resources and provides GPs with faster referrals and improved efficiency. HealthLink SmartForms will work seamlessly with GP electronic medical record software and as a cloud based solution will avoid the need for template updates and management. This provides a convenient solution that allows GPs to refer patients using one system only and without moving between software packages.

HealthLink SmartForms are an important step in Mater’s journey towards a more refined and intuitive electronic referral solution. 

Quick start guides

To make sending referrals using SmartForms as easy as possible quick start guides have been created for Best Practice, Genie and Medical Director medical practice software systems. These are available for download using the following links:
