The pathways represent the ongoing collaboration between the PHN and healthcare providers in the region, ensuring improved health outcomes through reduced wait times and reliable treatment guidance presented to clinicians alongside referral options in one place.
Among the most popular pathways were localised pathways, COVID-19 case management, medical, COVID-19, and surgical, viewed by 9,007 users in the West Moreton region, and 33,037 in the Darling Downs region.
