Chronic Disease Management (cdmNet)

A new online service, known as Chronic Disease Management-Net (cdmNet), has been developed to enable patients, their GPs and allied healthcare professionals to manage chronic disease through sharing medical histories, test results, up-dates on patients' conditions, send referrals and set appointment reminders.

More than 10,000 chronic care patients, 1000 GPs and 3000 allied health practitioners have trialed the national service and indicated higher quality care, enhanced productivity of the GP practice and expanded participation of allied health and other care providers.

The project was launched by Victorian Minister for Health Mr David Davis, in conjunction with Precedence Health Care (PHC).
