NDIS use of paper forms is wasting GPs’ time, says college

GPs have to copy information from electronic records into hard-copy forms

The paper-centric National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is wasting GPs’ time by forcing them to manually transcribe information from electronic patient records into hard-copy forms, the RACGP says.

Patients who want NDIS-funded care have to complete an Access Request Form and supporting documentation, but the scheme only accepts paper applications.
