E-Update for Primary Care
The purpose of the monthly CM Health E-Update for Primary Care is to provide relevant and timely news and information from Counties Manukau Health to CM Health GP practices, subscribed GPs, practice nurses and staff, PHO information channels and PHO clinical directors.
CareConnect is an online information service provided by the DHBs for sharing information between primary healthcare and hospital services. GPs may be familiar with the TestSafe service which has been renamed to "CareConnect TestSafe" to fit within the family brand that CareConnect incorporates.
Healthcare providers can now see the "full picture" of a patient’s recent and past test results, no matter who requested them. They can use this information to make the best decisions about a patient’s care.
Providing Access to Health Solutions (PATHS) is a programme that assists patients who want to work but whose health or disability is a barrier.
PATHS is a collaboration between Counties Manukau Health, the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) and Work and Income.
Primary Health Organisations (PHO) are funded by DHBs to provide primary health care services.
