Safe Transfer of Care Forum

Wednesday 28 April 2021

In March 2020, the Department planned a Victorian forum on transitions of care and eReferrals. The forum was to be an opportunity to showcase the achievements of health services that had implemented eReferral solutions.

That forum was deferred as Government and health services focused on their response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The “Safe Transfer of Care” forum will now be held on 28 April, 2021. It will present information on initiatives that improve the quality, timeliness and security of information exchanged between healthcare organisations/providers.

This forum will be an opportunity to:

  • Outline current policy framework to standardise the quality and timeliness of information used to transfer the care of patients
  • Outline national initiatives including the Service Registration Assistant and National Health Services Directory, that support the safe transfer of care for patients
  • Showcase the experiences of health services who have implemented electronic referral (eReferral) solutions
  • Seek input on the development of a strategic plan to strengthen the transfer of patient healthcare information in the Victorian health sector, using secure digital communication channels

A formal invitation to register as a participant of the Safe Transfer of Care forum will be sent in the next couple of weeks.
