Receiving Results

Doctors and patients rely on Dorevitch Pathology to deliver timely and accurate results. The Results Department is responsible for disseminating critical patient information, ensuring this is performed in a prompt and professional manner that maintains patient privacy.

Results can be delivered in a variety of formats that are convenient for referring Practitioners and are available as private and confidential, cumulative reporting and interim results.

At any time the delivery of results can be tailored to your individual need for that particular patient or sample.

This can be communicated by simply indicating the preferred method of delivery on your request form; i.e. fax or phone.


Result downloading (including HL7 data) allows paperless surgeries to maintain their automated systems and receive results on a frequent basis.

Results are delivered at varying intervals during the day depending on your requirements.


Dorevitch Pathology offers online results that enable you to view your patients’ results quickly, efficiently and securely from any computer with an Internet connection.

This is accessed via the Medway website, a web-based application by Dorevitch Pathology, providing you with real-time results, anytime, anywhere.


Practitioners have the flexibility to obtain results via phone by calling (03) 9244 0472, however generally this is the method of communication for urgent results. If a Practitioner requests urgent results via phone, Dorevitch Pathology will contact you with a result as soon as possible. A copy of all results communicated in this fashion will also be sent via usual methods. 


Faxed results can be organised for both routine and urgent results.

Routine results will arrive throughout the day as they become available, while urgent results are prioritised and faxed immediately once released.


Hardcopy results are delivered by our couriers throughout the day. These will arrive to you at varying intervals during the day depending on your requirements.

Urgent reprints can be organised when necessary.
