About Zeus
Zeus is Ireland’s first private e-Referrals and communications platform allowing GP’s, Consultants
and Hospitals to seamlessly refer and discharge patients and reduce admin costs in a fully safe,
secure and traceable environment.
Why choose Zeus?
Data Security - All referral communication is managed within the secure Zeus platform which
negates the need for posted, faxed or emailed referral /discharge letters and eliminates the
likelihood of mislaid patient information. As information is electronically sent directly from the
patient’s chart, the integrity of patient data is unaffected by inaccurate transcriptions or illegible
handwriting.
Reduced Costs - Removing the reliance on posted referral and discharge letters eradicates a
significant administrative cost. Sending or receiving a referral using Zeus requires no printing,
transcribing, envelope stuffing, franking or postage.
Communication – Zeus Referrals enables GP’s to see in real time whether their referral has been
accepted or rejected by the Consultant or Hospital department and in turn whether the patient
attends their scheduled appointment. Upon discharge, the GP receives an instant discharge
notification directly to their desktop ensuring the patient’s file is always up to date .
Patient Experience - Zeus Referrals improves the patient experience by removing the time delay;
patients receive the earliest possible appointment date. Also, patients can be confident the
Consultant is in possession of their most recent and accurate notes. Thirdly, as all referral
information is communicated via the Zeus platform, patient data remains 100% secure and
confidential.
