Join thousands of general practitioners nationwide
At Australian Clinical Labs we understand that the ongoing management of diabetes can be complex, so we offer you the innovative Diabetes Clinical Evaluation Program – designed to help you easily manage and monitor your patients living with diabetes, while also earning Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
Our unique program provides doctors with the support needed to create better outcomes for patients, allowing those who refer diabetes pathology to Australian Clinical Labs to closely monitor the health of their patients with ease.
According to the RACGP Clinical Guidelines for General Practice Management of Type 2 diabetes, Hba1c tests should be used in monitoring blood glucose levels in the long-term.
In line with Medicare entitlements, each diabetes patient is eligible for 4 fully funded Hba1c tests per year. Our program highlights your patients with diabetes that are more than 6 months overdue for this important monitoring investigation.
Management of your patients with diabetes with a current HbA1c result is one of the key Quality Improvement Measures for practices enrolled in the PIP QI Incentive.

Dramatically improve patient recall
Our unique program has already been seamlessly incorporated into the day-to-day practice of thousands of general practitioners nationwide, and has helped those doctors to achieve impressive patient recall results.
General practitioners can utilise their program statistics and list of patients due for monitoring to manage the pathology requirements for their patients with diabetes and compare with state averages, dramatically increasing patient recall performance.
If you are a current Australian Clinical Labs referrer, simply enrol in the program, and you will be sent monthly progress updates highlighting patients who are due for their recommended bi-annual Hba1c monitoring.
Reduce administrative time and cost
Doctors who may not have the administrative support required for the demanding task of following up of patients for review, can use our customised patient reminder service. You can choose to send your patients customised reminder letters through the Clinical Labs mail house, all at the click of a button – leaving you with more time for the review consultations – focussing on management plans and patient clinical support.
This unique program seeks to make the clinically recommended monitoring of diabetes seamless for both doctor and patient, creating a consistent and reliable review schedule for people with diabetes. Patients attend the same practice for consultations, follow-ups and checking – allowing continuous patient monitoring and optimisation of care.
