Mater introduces eLetters into the outpatient space

Monday 1 August 2022

Mater has been on a journey over the past 12 months to enhance our digital offerings in the Mater Hospital Brisbane public outpatient space.  This has included the introduction of electronic progress notes, and now the introduction of electronic letters. 

The eLetter digital solution allows clinicians to leverage typed outpatient notes to quickly generate a letter, enabling eLetters to be easily sent at the time of consult to the GP, the referrer, the patient, or additional providers involved in the patient’s care. 

When used alongside the existing dictation services, it is anticipated that the eLetters solution will help to improve the frequency and timeliness of communication from Mater to community providers and patients. eLetters went live at Mater in early June.
