ACT & Southern NSW HealthPathways

COORDINARE has partnered with Capital Health Network, ACT Health and Southern NSW Local Health District (LHD) to implement HealthPathways across the ACT and Southern NSW region.

HealthPathways is an online health information website containing localised clinical and referral information for local health services. These services are jointly developed by general practitioners, specialists and other primary health care providers. This collaboration is key to its success, both for practitioners and their patients. Meet our Clinical Leads and Clinical Editors >

HealthPathways is available to all health professionals within ACT and Southern NSW. It is primarily designed for GPs and their staff, but is also available for medical specialists and other health professionals for use within their scope of practice.

The portal is not designed to be used by patients or the general community. However, there will be information available on the portal that can be provided to patients during a consultation.

The benefits of using HealthPathways are:

  • more patients getting the right treatment or specialist care with reduced waiting time
  • clinician-agreed pathways both into and out of the public health system
  • support with information on appropriate referral and pre-referral work up
  • improved quality and appropriateness of referrals
  • local adaption of evidence-based health care and supporting resources
  • more appropriate use of inpatient, outpatient and community services
  • more relevant educational resources for patients available to clinicians
  • clinician engagement in identifying system problems and solutions.

Health practitioners are encouraged to participate in the development and refinement of their local HealthPathways in the following ways:

  • become involved in clinical working groups on HealthPathway topics of interest or areas of specialty, where teams work collaboratively to determine optimum patient care processes. Register your interest via email to
  • provide feedback on the HealthPathways site using the ‘send feedback’ tab (far right corner of each HealthPathway) about the content and/or service information.

If you are a GP, medical specialist, nurse, allied health or other health care practitioner who would like to suggest a clinical area or condition for a new pathway, please contact our HealthPathways team on 02 4474 8421 or email
