EPAS Discharge Summaries now send to My Health Record
Upon discharge from hospital, treating clinicians complete a patient discharge summary in EPAS. Once confirmed as correct by the treating clinician, this information is automatically faxed to the GP overnight. The discharge summary contains information relating to the patient’s inpatient visit.
From June 2017, discharge summaries are automatically sent from EPAS to patients’ My Health Record, where the patient has an established My Health Record and is over the age of 18.
