Some PHNs already have an e-referral system, however it is not married with a data reporting system that captures metrics that federal, state and other funding providers now require.
And these metrics continue to change over time.
For many organisations retro-fitting or bolting onto their existing systems is not the way to go.
This was the decision Brisbane North and other PHNs faced. All had to get CEO and/or Board approval to go with the new system, but they decided it was better than throwing good money after bad.
Taking the “risk” and going with a proven solution and a confirmed budget was the best decision.
