Tasmanian HealthPathways

Tasmanian HealthPathways is online information portal developed by Primary Health Tasmania. It’s designed to help primary care clinicians plan local patient care through primary, community and secondary healthcare systems.

HealthPathways aims to guide best-practice assessment and management of common medical conditions, including how to refer patients to local specialists and services in the most timely and efficient way.

Who can use it?

Pathways are designed to be used at the point of care. While primarily targeted at GPs, they can also be used by hospital specialists, nurses, allied health workers and other Tasmanian health professionals.


There are many Tasmanian HealthPathways already available – more than 850, in fact –  for conditions ranging from endocrinology and sexual health, to pain management and preventive care, along with many others.

Pathways are routinely reviewed to ensure they contain the latest best-practice guidance and reflect the provision of care in Tasmania.

Pathways are developed and updated through various consultation methods, including clinical work groups.
