New release of SharedCare/WhanauTahi includes an automated process to de-register patients form GP practices, enabling instant enrolment in new practices.
If you are community laboratory test orderer, specimen taker or community pharmacist, there is a responsibility to communicate to your patients the way information is shared.
In consultation with primary care groups and the privacy commissioner's office, TestSafe designed an approach for healthcare consumer communications that will work in with your busy schedule and provide you with various benefits. The package includes:
The information you will need to provide to your patients when ordering tests will vary depending on the individual patient, the type of test involved and the patient's current knowledge of TestSafe. Clearly displaying posters in your surgery and providing the written information about TestSafe will help you meet legal and professional obligations.
In some cases only a brief additional discussion may be required with patients when ordering the tests to answer any questions they may have and to determine whether they wish to ‘Prevent TestSafe Sharing’. This means you will not need to spend valuable consulting time dealing with issues relating to the TestSafe changes.
Click here to place on order for Posters or Information pads, make sure you include the quantities you require and postal details. Note that a maximum of 8 Information pads may be ordered at one time.
