Several specialists in Perth are now preferring to receive referrals electronically via MMEx rather than by fax. If a specialist has expressed this to you, follow these instructions to electronically send your referrals.
First, the MMEx client must be installed on a server or workstation by the UWA CSP
This does two things:
MMEx email accounts are created so that messages can be sent from patient management systems such as MD3, BP, MedTech32 and others.
Go into the Address Book and add your Specialist's contact details and MMEx email address into your contacts. Their MMEx email address will be their mmex user name followed by @mmex.gsmhn.com.au
Open the patient record and select the Letter Writer from the Tools tab in the top menu.
Next click File > New and select your specialist's referral template from the list in the box that pops up. Click OK.
You will then be prompted select the addressee (the specialist you are sending the referral to) and to complete the patient referral details.
Click File > Print to print a copy to sign and give to the patient.
Next save the referral to your Patient Letters section by clicking File > Save (Figure 1). You can then re-print the referral at any time by opening the patient record and selecting Letters. The referral will be listed as per the date it was requested.
