Test Directories

As part of our new structure, work is underway to develop a single test directory for our pathology services. Until then, please refer to the existing test directories for information as needed.

The statewide test catalogue

NSW Health Pathology is consolidating all test information into one statewide test catalogue that will be available via an online portal (on our intranet and website) and via a mobile App.

We are doing this because the Pre and Post Analytical Clinical Stream conducted a review of each of the current systems in use and identified the statewide test catalogue as the best solution to deliver the functions required across the state.

Using one statewide catalogue for all our test information means we can be confident that we’re providing the best patient care.

It will be the single source of truth for all test information that can be accessed easily by clinicians, collectors, specimen reception staff, and scientists.

As we move to the new catalogue all information is being reviewed to ensure it is accurate and up to date. 

Staff will know the information they’re using is right, and that they don’t have to re-do tests and delay patient care.

It will also make it easier for clinicians to order tests and enable us to provide the right care at the right time.

This will mean patients get their results faster, can start treatment earlier and recover sooner.

Timing

The project will be delivered in the second half of 2018.

We have started to build the system so that information is reviewed and up to date in consultation with staff and clinicians who use it most.

Regular updates will be provided as the project progresses but for more information about the project please email Judy Kempton-Webb or p 4921 4431.
