The Smart eReferral Solution

HealthLink SmartForm technology now facilitate the delivery of standard web-based forms that facilitate consistent, high quality, and data-rich referrals.  Users (GPs) benefit from capabilities such as pre-population, field validation and consistency checks, conditional visibility, intuitive layout, support for attachments, and ability to save and return to the draft referral at a later time (parking).

Through the Aduro interface, SmartForms integrate seamlessly with Aduro-capable EMRs which means the referral process can happen within the doctor’s workflow whilst interacting with the patient during the consultation. 

SmartForm capable EMRs currently include Medical Director, Best Practice and Genie.  Medtech is in the early stages of general release and Zedmed is currently in discussion with HealthLink on including Aduro capabilities to its product.
