Secure Electronic Communication between Referrers and ESA: 

  • ESA has adopted the ARGUS messaging software to enable secure electronic communication between ourselves and our referrers. Argus is a collection of software products that enable messages to be encrypted, sent via email to the recipient (referrer or ESA in this case) and ultimately decrypted for use by the other party.
  • ESA uses VIP Patient Management Software so we will need to arrange an appropriate exchange of information in order for our system to work correctly with emails from/to you. The critical piece of information for us to receive and send is your provider number.
  • If you are not familiar with Argus we suggest you go to their website, www.argusconnect.com.au.
