What is HealthPathways Melbourne?


HealthPathways Melbourne is an online portal designed to be used by general practice at the point of care to guide best practice assessment and management of common medical conditions, including when and where to refer patients.  It is also available to medical specialists, nurses, allied health and other health professionals for use within their scope of practice.


The name HealthPathways reflects the referral pathways that assist in connecting patients to the right care, at the right place and with the right healthcare provider.
