HealthPathways

HealthPathways WA is a free to access website, run by WAPHA. It covers all three Primary Health Networks in WA; Perth North, Perth South and Country WA. The site contains condition specific pathways to assist in assessing, managing and referring patients. General Practitioners write the pathways, in consultation with specialists and other health professionals from across the state.

The aim of HealthPathways WA is to ensure patients access the right care at the right time in the right location. Pathways include local health service information, providing GPs with local referral options.  HealthPathways enable a more seamless, effective and complete patient journey by combining clinical and health service information in one place.

Visit our HealthPathways WA page to read more, request the free log on details, and find out how you can be involved with developing and reviewing HealthPathways.
