Marrabinya is a brokerage service funded by the WNSWPHN under the Commonwealth Governments Integrated Team Care (ITC) program. The service provides support to general practice to improve access to multidisciplinary care for Aboriginal people with a chronic disease.
An advanced Intranet application was developed using PHP and Microsoft SQL Server to store patient, GP, health service, patient referral and service task information. The system was created for health staff all across Western NSW for them to easily add and update records for patient medical aid, transport, accommodation support, fuel costs and more for each region on a centralised system.
The Marrabinya IHSS system has been a resounding success and I continue to support the system as it evolves.
