Allied health practice management software specialist coreplus has partnered with secure messaging vendors HealthLink and HealthConnex (Argus) to create a secure message delivery (SMD) service built in to the coreplus platform that acts as a hub for multiple SMD vendors.
Rather than allied health practitioners having to subscribe to the different secure messaging services to receive encrypted eReferrals, coreplus will do it on their behalf with charges only applying to messages received.
Coreplus CEO John (Yianni) Serpanos said he understood the SMD Hub was a first for the industry in Australia for cloud-based software and would encourage more allied health professionals to use secure messaging based on the SMD standard.
Secure messages from multiple SMD vendors are received via a Secure Messaging Inbox accessed from the coreplus dashboard and can then be allocated to the appropriate client and practitioner for viewing, Mr Serpanos said.
Once received, the messages can also be renamed for ease of retrieval based on the particular client, issue, practitioner or sending party.
“The coreplus SMD service subscribes to multiple SMD vendors and then acts as an exchange for its online patient and practice management software community,” Mr Serpanos said.
“This removes the requirement for practitioners to individually pay joining fees and annual subscription fees to multiple SMD vendors, as well as preventing costly installation fees for integrations at a local site level.
“The SMD service offers a one-to-many relationship between an allied health professional and all sources of eReferrals.”
