HealthLink 6.6.1 Guide
The HealthLink SIX Messaging System (HMS) is a messaging system which exchanges
electronic messages between health providers' computer systems. Using a common electronic
message exchange system means that health providers can quickly, easily and securely share
information about their patients.
The HMS Client can be used by any health provider organisation with a capable computer
system. Many General Practices, Hospitals, Accident and Emergency Clinics and Specialist
Surgeries are reducing their paper workload right now thanks to HMS.
In most cases the electronic message is created within the
to the recipient using their HealthLink EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) address. HealthLink
EDI accounts will store any messages addressed to their organisation. Using HealthLink at
their practice, the recipient will collect the
systems. The receiving system will display all newly received messages and sort them by
individual recipient. The recipient can process the message, and the information is securely
stored on their clinical system.
