Paving the way with over 300 pathways now available

Since its initial launch in November 2013, Western Sydney HealthPathways has continued to gain momentum across the region as health professionals in both primary and secondary care utilise, explore and support the development of the clinical portal.

This week HealthPathways reached a significant milestone, surpassing more than 300 live pathways, and further extending on the wide variety of locally relevant information and resources aimed at enhancing patient management and referral.

To date over 270 western Sydney health professionals have participated in the development of pathways across a wide variety of health conditions and specialist areas. Each pathway has been created using the expertise and experience of local general practitioners, hospital specialists, nurses, and allied health providers, to help ensure western Sydney patients receive the right care, at the right time, by the right health professional.

In 2016, the portal site was accessed over 16,000 times, which saw a 50% increase on the previous year’s access figures. This year HealthPathways will continue to evolve as new clinical streams become available, and additional features are launched within the portal including: a health service directory database, improved mobile device interface, and the ability to jump between HealthPathways regions without the need to re-login.
