Argus S2S Electronic Referral
As part of the Argus S2S project, also known as the GP e-referral project, GP’s can now refer consumers to Community Health Services through electronic secure messaging.
The Argus S2S project was initiated in 2011 after a need for interoperability between two electronic referral platforms was identified.
Argus is a secure messaging system for the healthcare profession to allow them to send sensitive and confidential information about their patients to other healthcare professionals.
S2S is one of the preferred electronic referral tools used in Gippsland and across Victoria by state funded health services.
Argus/S2S is commonly known as the electronic bridge between private providers and state health services. See the diagram below for more information.
