Web-based AUSCARE

AUSCARE is the pathology results viewer for The Royal Melbourne Hospital from November 2017. Users of this service can access results via the web-based results viewing system, AUSCARE.

External GPs and specialists that require access to RMH pathology results will need to register to use AUSCARE.

If you use other clinical practice software such as Medical Director or Genie, AUSCARE will automatically show pathology results in these programs, so you will not need to register for AUSCARE access.
