About HealthPathways South Australia
 

HealthPathways is a highly successful model developed by Streamliners N.Z Ltd. and Canterbury District Health Board, and has been localised by health professionals across Australia. HealthPathways is an online portal that provides General Practitioners (GPs) and other health professionals with easy access to comprehensive, evidence-based assessment, management and localised referral resources for specific health conditions. 

HealthPathways assists health professionals to care for patients in the community, and establishes standard, agreed referral criteria for local health services across South Australia. HealthPathways enables primary and acute sector health care professionals to work together to improve patient access to the right care at the right time in the right place.


Who can use HealthPathways South Australia? 
HealthPathways is designed to be used at the point of care by GPs, however is  also available to health care professionals across South Australia for use within their scope of practice. HealthPathways is not designed to be used by the general community. However, depending on the specific pathway, relevant patient resources will be   available on the portal for health professionals to provide to patients to support their care. 


Who is involved with development?
HealthPathways South Australia (SA) is a partnership between SA Health, Adelaide Primary Health Network and Country SA Primary Health Network. The partners have established a team to develop and implement HealthPathways South Australia. The HealthPathways team includes GP Clinical Editors, Clinical Coordinators and Clinical Leaders from across the primary and acute health sectors.
