SA GPs to plug into e-health

The enterprise patient administration system (EPAS) will see more than 3500 computers installed at bedsides in SA public hospitals, allowing doctors to access real time medical information about emergency patients, monitor progress of patients and exchange secure messages.

GPs with admitting rights to SA hospitals will have access to the new EPAS Clinician Portal, where they will be able to view patient information, test orders and medicines and review results.
