COVID-19 Testing - Triage and Booking Solution
Following a trial at multiple sites, the COVID-19 Testing – Booking and Triage Solution (the solution) has now been deployed across the state.
The solution prioritises those most in need of a test based on their epidemiological and clinical criteria and matches consumers with their closest and most appropriate testing provider in Queensland based on their postcode, need, and clinic capacity. The program is easy to use, can be deployed within hours, and has unequivocally delivered benefits for both clinic staff and Queenslanders needing to have a test done. For HHS implementation information, please email Dan.OHalloran@health.qld.gov.au. Consumers can find out more information via the Health Consumers Queensland website.
Fever clinics are set up by Queensland Health and the respective HHS to test suspected COVID cases.
Respiratory clinics have been established and contracted by the Department of Health for testing and management of respiratory symptoms.
If you aren't conducting COVID-19 testing in your practice, we encourage you to refer patients on to private pathology, or to your nearest respiratory or fever clinic.
