Have your say on HealthPathways
We are working with Synergia to evaluate our HealthPathways, particularly focusing on three case study areas:
Each of the three surveys above will take just 1 or 2 minutes to complete, and seeks information about the specialist and other services within the pathways with which you engage, the usability of the pathways, and how you became informed about them. While you may wish to only take the survey that is most relevant to your clinical practice, please feel free to complete all three surveys if you wish. Your responses will only be used for the purposes of this evaluation.
 
Please take a few moments to participate, so that future HealthPathways enhancements continue to meet your needs.
