A single statewide electronic referral (eReferral) management system is being established across all of SA Health.

The Statewide eReferrals Program, being rolled out by Digital Health SA, will enable GPs to digitally send referral forms to outpatient clinics, replacing the use of faxes and letters.


eReferrals is being introduced in several phases, with the program to be implemented at SA Health’s metropolitan hospitals, followed by the regional hospitals. The Women’s and Children’s hospital being the first to go live on 13 September 2023, and Riverland Mallee Coorong Local Health Network being the first regional hospital to go live on 29 November 2023.
