TestSafe helps healthcare providers 'complete the picture' so they can provide the best care to their patients.
"Testsafe has significantly cut down time needed to get hospital results and has actually been pivotal in patient care on a number of occasions" John Cameron, GP and Medical Executive Officer for ProCare
TestSafe was officially released in early 2010. Pharmacy dispensings began being viewable from mid 2010, the pharmacies were gradually added over 2010 and 2011, and the majority of pharmacy dispensings became viewable late 2010.
