The GHA has introduced a new medical app that will enable clinicians to access pathology results more easily, remotely, 24 hours a day. The app is described as safe, easy to use, password protected, and following best practice. Until now doctors and health professionals could only access the laboratory information online via a computer, or email link. Now they will be able to remotely, via their smart phones and other mobile devices. The move aims to make the system more efficient with the app avoiding the need for follow up appointments to review blood results, this releasing much needed slots at the Primary Care Centre.
Health Minister, Neil Costa, is delighted the app is now functional saying it’s a great technological innovation for the GHA. He adds they are always striving to introduce the latest advances to improve the way in which clinicians can carry out their vitally important work.
