Work and Income introduced e-Lodgement of Work Capacity medical certificates on 10 June 2015. This means GP practices can submit these medical certificates electronically rather than printing and signing them.
Importantly it means patients won’t have to make a trip to Work and Income to drop off their medical certificate.
e-Lodgement significantly improves the transfer of relevant information between practitioners and Work and Income. GP practices also benefit from the improved automation and simplified work flow e-Lodgement allows.
If your practice doesn’t currently have access to HealthLink’s online forms please contact us to arrange this free system upgrade.
