Before your admission to hospital for surgery, you will be asked to provide information to the hospital which will make your hospital admission as smooth as possible. The information collected on admission is determined in part by Commonwealth legislation, Queensland legislation, our contracts with Health Funds and the requirements of our accrediting bodies. Information you provide will be confidentially transmitted to hospital using secure 128-bit SSL encryption technology. Your Patient History Details are sent directly to a designated pre-admission area within the hospital for review and preparation of your medical record pending your arrival at hospital.
If necessary, a Registered Nurse may contact you after receipt of your information if your responses indicate further enquiry or action might be required prior to admission.
