The aim of this website is to provide you with information on the progress of the HealthPathways Sydney project. This project began as a collaboration between Sydney Local Health District and Inner West Sydney Medicare Local. Following the closure of Medicare Locals, HealthPathways Sydney has established a partnership with the Central and Eastern Sydney PHN which supports clinicians in our local area.
This site includes planning documents, details on key events, progress on pathway and local resource development and ways in which you can contribute to the program or propose future pathways.
What is HealthPathways?
HealthPathways is a web-based information portal supporting primary care clinicians to plan patient care through our primary, community and secondary health care systems. The HealthPathways site is designed to be used at the point of care, primarily by General Practitioners but is also available to Hospital Specialists, Nurses, Allied Health and other Health Professionals within Inner West Sydney. For further information on HealthPathways, please see our Information Guide.
When can I start using HealthPathways?

Recent additions include Diabetes, Antenatal Shared Care, Heart Failure, Renal Disease, Lung Cancer and Orthopaedics. To see which pathways have been completed and which are in draft, click on the Program Progress tab. There you can also find our latest reporting dashboards which provide information on the usage and reach of the program.
