Secure Messaging supports the delivery of messages containing clinical documents and/or other healthcare specific information relating to a client. Secure Messaging is often mistaken for an encrypted email or a digital fax – it’s neither! Secure Messaging has been developed specifically for the transmission of client related information between different clinical information software via a national standard, ensuring safe, seamless, secure and private healthcare information sharing.
Using Secure Messaging with coreplus connects you over 75,000 practitioners in the Australian healthcare system through our multiple vendor integration.
You can consider Secure Messaging as a referral source, because being connected means that you are visible.
As part of Australia’s National Digital Health Strategy – Safe, Seamless and Secure, one of the key priorities is to end dependence on the fax machine and paper-based correspondence by empowering healthcare providers to communicate with other professionals and their patients via secure digital channels.
It’s completely free.
Secure Messaging is primarily used by general practices to refer patients to specialists. General practices & specialists are incentivised to use Secure Messaging through the Deparment of Health’s Practice Incentives Program (PIP).
