What is HealthPathways WA?
HealthPathways WA is designed to be used at the point of care by general practitioners.
HealthPathways WA is a web-based portal with information on referral and management pathways helping clinicians to access appropriate services in the primary, community and acute health care settings in WA for patients.
How is HealthPathways WA developed?
The pathways are developed by consensus and collaboration between hospital clinicians (or associated allied health professionals) and general practice teams.
You can view the full list of pathways that are currently under development here.
Who manages HealthPathways WA?
HealthPathways WA is managed by the WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA). WAPHA is the governing body of the three Primary Health Networks in Western Australia; the PHNs replaced Medicare Locals in July 2015.
WAPHA entered into a partnership agreement with WA Health in September 2015. The key focus for the partnership is to develop pathways to be utilised within the HealthPathways WA web-based information portal.
This is an opportunity for WA Health and WAPHA to work together to improve integration between primary, secondary and tertiary care and build stronger clinical engagement and connections across WA Health, health care providers and the community.
