IT system causes SA blood test delays

May 16, 2018

South Australians may be waiting a little longer than usual for their blood test results.

A new pathology IT system has caused delays in blood test results across South Australia's health network.

SA Health says the delays are largely the result of complex data entry requirements with the new Enterprise Pathology Laboratory Information System.

Deputy chief executive Don Frater says a task force will review the test delays and 30 extra staff will be hired to bring wait times down to normal levels.
