eMedical is the Department's electronic health processing system.
Benefits of eMedical
eMedical removes the need to process paper-based health examination reports, and allows panel physicians to record a visa applicant's health information electronically. This includes their health examination results, digital chest x-rays, specialist reports, and biometric photographs.
As health information is submitted electronically, the information is received instantly by the department, avoiding any delay associated with sending hard copy health examination results to Australia.
