Southern District – lab results

Sharing of patient information

Lab results

As part of the rollout of the shared patient record in the Southern District, lab results are now being shared from Southern and are available to view via Health Connect South (HCS)/HealthOne.  This means that authorized HCS/HealthOne users in other Districts will be able to view Southern lab results if they are or become involved directly in that patient’s care.

From what date is this information being shared?

Lab results processed from Monday 23 May will initially be the only information shared.   There are plans at a later date to include historical data but this will not happen without further announcements.

Opt off

Patients have the right to opt off an individual lab test item being shared or opting off lab results being shared altogether.  They also have the right to ‘globally opt off’ the shared patient record altogether.  Please click here for more information.
