Electronic Result Delivery

Clinical Information System

The Clinical Information System (CIS) is only available to ACT Health employees who treat patients. The system is a secure way for you to assess patient results through a user-friendly web browser. ACT Pathology provides authorised personnel with access to pathology results via CIS on the ACT Government Intranet.

To apply, please request access through the icon on the CIS application or email for further information.

Downloading to surgeries

ACT Pathology can provide direct and secure pathology results for surgeries that use practice management software, such as Medical Director, Medtech 32, Medical Spectrum, Intrahealth and Genie. Results are downloaded in PIT or HL7 formats for external clients.

You can access this service on both PC and Apple computers using HealthLink software.

To apply for HealthLink, please use our online application form or phone Customer Services on (02) 5124 2932.

We can automatically fax pathology results to a requesting practitioner's surgery as soon as they are authorised in the laboratory.

You can use auto fax for specific tests or for all results. Additional hard copies can be requested.
