Hi Rekha

I have spoken to Scott Sinclair IT Manager, and we are receiving many requests for online referral forms which are a great idea as they will save time and improve efficiency.

Currently we are waiting for the Monash Health website upgrades. Finance need to approve funding. Once this is complete the upgrade project can begin. We predict this will be complete after Christmas all going well.

At that point you can have a referral form included into the website. However currently this is not possible due to lack of security as the site is not mobile friendly and does not have https implemented. In addition it does not comply with legal requirements concerning the management of patient information.

Can you please contact me after Christmas and I will be able to provide further direction regarding dates.
