Description:
The Hayes Report [LINK] in March 2010 into “unopened” or “unprocessed” GP referrals in Tallaght Hospital, and the subsequent HIQA report on patient referral from GPs to outpatient services [LINK] highlighted a number of problems which needed to be addressed, including:  Failures in communication  Lack of visibility and traceability of referrals  Significant variation and lack of protocols for the management of referrals between sites This case study outlines how the National Electronic General GP Referral Pilot Project tackled these problems using technology to bring about significant patient centered benefits to seven acute hospitals in Cork, Kerry and Tallaght, and participating GPs (insert links to the names of the hospitals) and addressed recommendations in these reports.
