How does a Medical Provider User record a medical result?


This article details how a Medical Provider User (Authorised Health Professional) can record a medical result in the RIW System for a RIW cardholder.



This instruction applies to the following RIW System User Roles:

  • Medical Provider User


Step 1: Log in to the RIW System

Go to https://app.riw.net.au and log in to the RIW System using your Medical Provider credentials. 


 


Step 2: Record medical result

Click the Record Medical Result button in the Medicals shortcut box on the Main Dashboard to display the following screen:



Step 3: Search for cardholder

To search for a cardholder enter the cardholders surname, RIW number and date of birth.  


Note: All three key pieces of information must be entered correctly to access the RIW cardholders profile.


Click Search to display the cardholder details.



Step 4: Select cardholder

Highlight the cardholder and click Select to access the cardholders profile and record the medical result.



Step 5: Record medical result

When the cardholders profile displays, click on the Medicals tab on the left hand side menu, and then Record Medical Result icon.



Step 6: Record medical result details

The Record Medical Results screen will display. Enter all mandatory data fields marked with a red asterisk (*).


The cardholder’s details and name of the logged in Medical Provider User and their organisation will be automatically populated on the form, as well as today’s date for the Examination Date and the appropriate Expiry Date. This is calculated based on the age of the cardholder and on the examination date, which is detailed in our RIW Knowledge Centre article What are the medical categories and expiry calculations used in the RIW System?. If the examination date was earlier than today, it can be amended, and the auto-calculated Expiry Date will be updated accordingly.


Enter all the remaining relevant information into the appropriate fields, selecting the Type of Medical, Result and Medical Level and Colour Vision from the dropdown lists presented. Be sure to complete all the mandatory fields marked with a red asterisk (*). 


If it is appropriate to specify one or more Work Restrictions, tick the relevant checkbox(es). If Must Be Accompanied is ticked, the user will be prompted “Have you discussed with your CMO?”, which is a prompt for the AHP to contact the Chief Medical Officer to discuss if any notes needed to be included with the work restriction.



The list of Work Restrictions can be updated after submission if required by contacting the RIW Service Desk on info@riw.net.au


Add any Notes (not clinical information) by typing in the text box provided.


Supporting documentation (maximum file size 10Mb) must also be attached to the record in the following formats: PDF, JPG, JPEG or PNG.  Medical Provider Users can drag and drop the required files onto the Select Files screen, or Click to Add Files.  Click OK when all files have been added.



Note: The medical result will not be valid until an attachment has been added. Until then, any previous medical will apply when determining competency or role validity.


Note: The Medical Level selected can impact the cardholder’s competency and job role validity.


When all the information has been entered correctly, click the Save button and confirm the result, when prompted.   


The medical assessment has now been uploaded.

How to request additional Medical Provider logins

Medical Provider Users (Authorised Health Professionals, or AHP's) can request additional Medical Provider logins to assist in the lodging of medical results in their practice by administrative staff. These additional Medical Provider Users have the same access as a Medical Provider login.


To create an additional Medical Provider User, an AHP Management Service Request needs to be raised with the RIW Service Desk at https://www.riw.net.au/contact-us/request-a-service/?ahpmanagement.


PLEASE NOTE: The Service Request has to be raised by the AHP so that it can be clarified that the new login is authorised.


Before starting the Service Request, have the following information to hand:

 

  1. Full name of the new Medical Provider User
  2. Unique email address of new Medical Provider User


Upon launching the Service Request form, from the dropdown in the Request Category box select Other.  All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.  Please make it clear that you are an AHP and are requesting a login for one of your staff.


Please add the full name and email address for the new login in the Comments field.




Check that all the information is correct and click Send.


The request will be processed by the RIW Service Desk and a login will be sent to the new Medical Provider User.

What are the rail health (medical) assessment and drug & alcohol result outcomes?


This article details the RIW System behaviour that results from a rail health (medical) assessment or drug & alcohol assessment result submitted by an Authorised Health Professional (AHP).



This instruction applies to the following user roles:

  • Helpdesk
  • Medical Provider User (AHP)

Medical Result


Rail Health (Medical) Assessment result submitted 

Pass/Fail Outcome 

Fit for Duty Unconditional 

Fit for Duty 

Fit for Duty Conditional 

Fit for Duty 

Fit for Duty Subject to Job Modification 

Fit for Duty 

Fit for Duty Subject to Review 

Fit for Duty

Temporarily Unfit 

Not Fit for Duty

Permanently Unfit 

Not Fit for Duty 


A rail health (medical) assessment result recorded as either Temporarily Unfit or Permanently Unfit may change the validity of certain competencies and/or job roles the Rail Industry Worker holds, which may impact their authority to work.



Drug & Alcohol Result

Where a drug and/or alcohol assessment is required as part of the Rail Industry Worker's rail health (medical) assessment, that is, a new assessment, change of medical category etc., the AHP can record the outcome. 


The following table shows the RIW System outcome for the result submitted by the AHP. 


Drug & Alcohol Test result submittedPass / Fail Outcome
Confirmed PositiveFail
NegativePass
Test RefusalFail
No Test RequiredPass


If either of the separate drug and/or alcohol test results are recorded as Fail, it will affect the Rail Industry Worker's authority to work as an immediate and an automatic National Block will be imposed. 


This means the cardholder will not be able work on participating RIW Program rail networks. 

However, each network can decide independently whether the block can be lifted for their network alone. 


Random, post-incident and show cause D&A tests
These types of D&A tests are not managed via a Medical Provider (AHP) login.  Where a Network Operator conducts D&A testing under their Drug and Alcohol Management Program, any confirmed positives or failures will be managed via the RIW Program Blocks and Suspension Rules.


Breathalyser Results
For more information about how breathalyser results are treated in the RIW System, refer to How are breathalyser tests recorded in the RIW System?

What are the medical categories and expiry calculations used in the RIW System?


Medical categories as recorded in the RIW System are defined below.  


Expiry dates - with the exception of category 4 health assessments - are automatically calculated by the RIW System from the cardholder’s date of birth and date of assessment, as outlined below:


Category 1 and 2 health assessments

  • At time of commencement
  • Up to 50 years old: 5 yearly
  • If aged 45 and 46: 5 yearly
  • Ages 47, 48 and 49: the expiry would be set as their 52nd birthday
  • Age 50-60: every 2 years
  • From age 60: renewed annually

Note: the cardholder must have a health assessment conducted within 2 years after turning 50 years of age, and within 1 year after turning 60 years of age.


Category 3 health assessments

  • At time of commencement - 
  • Up to 40 years old: expires on the worker's 40th birthday
  • From age 40: every five years

Note: Category 3 cardholders who have had a full health assessment less than 5 years before turning 40 will have their next periodic assessment scheduled 5 years from that date.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Transport for NSW (TfNSW) requires category 3 medicals to expire every 5 years, irrespective of the cardholder’s age. Therefore, where a cardholder holds a TfNSW role, the expiration of that role will be set to 5 years from the date of the medical. This will apply to the job role, regardless of whether the medical expiry date on the worker's profile is longer or not.

Where a cardholder holds a non-TfNSW role requiring a category 3 medical and a TfNSW role, the expiration of those roles will be set based on the separate requirements; one to the National Health Standard, and one to TfNSW requirements.  


Category 4 health assessments

  • These are a ‘once only’ pre-screen medical done at time of commencement;
  • The expiry date of the medical is set by the doctor.

 

Unfit for category 1, but fit for 2 & 3 (in effect category 2)

The AHP has determined that the cardholder does not meet the requirements to fulfill a Category 1 medical, but is fit for Category 2 and 3. This could mean the cardholder may require further testing, or the cardholder could have permanent requirements that could not be met. These should be indicated on the results page. Expiry of the medical would be similar to a category 2 assessment, or pending re-evaluation as determined by the AHP.

 

Unfit for categories 1 and 2, but fit for 3 (in effect category 3)

The AHP has determined that the cardholder does not meet the requirements to fulfill a Category 1 or 2 medical, but is fit for category 3. This could mean the cardholder may require further testing, or the cardholder could have permanent requirements that could not be met. These should be indicated on the results page. Expiry of the medical would be similar to a category 3 assessment, or pending re-evaluation as determined by the AHP.

  

Unfit for categories 1, 2 & 3, but fit for work outside the Danger Zone (in effect category 4)

The AHP has determined that the cardholder does not meet the requirements to fulfill a Category 1, 2 or 3 medical, but is fit for category 4. This could mean the cardholder may require further testing, or the cardholder could have permanent requirements that could not be met. These should be indicated on the results page. Expiry of the medical would be similar to a category 4 assessment, or pending re-evaluation as determined by the AHP.

 


With the exception of category 4 health assessments, a calculated expiry date cannot be extended beyond the calculated date shown, however expiry dates can be reduced.

   

For further details, please refer to the National Business Rules regarding expiry dates of specific medical assessments here.

How are cardholders who hold multiple medicals managed?

Cardholders may hold multiple medicals at any given time, and roles/competencies managed as per the requirements detailed in What are the medical categories and expiry calculations used in the RIW System?


For example: a cardholder can hold valid Category 1 and Category 3 Medicals simultaneously, with the respective expiry dates based on the National Standard or TfNSW’s Category 3 requirement - i.e. the expiration is independent of each other. 


However, the interaction between the medicals may be impacted upon at the next medical, for example:

  • If the cardholder is due for their Category 3 Medical, and the Medical Provider (AHP) deems the cardholder as Unfit for Duty, the RIW System will treat the cardholder as unfit for both Category 1 and the Category 3 medicals.


  • If the cardholder is due for their Category 1 Medical and the AHP deems the cardholder as unfit for duty for the category 1, the Category 3 medical will not be affected.


If the cardholder is due to renew their Category 1 Medical, the AHP may deem the cardholder as Unfit for Duty for the Category 1, and may record the outcome as ‘Unfit for Categories 1 and 2, but fit for 3’ (in effect Category 3). Consequently, the RIW System will treat this as a Category 3 Medical and set the new expiry date accordingly.


Work Restrictions and Multiple Medicals

Where multiple medicals are held by a cardholder, the work restrictions set by the most recent Medical Assessment will be used on the cardholder’s profile.

Where can I find the National Fit Slips (Part B) Health Assessment Report and Triggered Health Assessment Report?


Authorised Health Professionals can now use the Health Assessment Report and Triggered Health Assessment Report when completing a Rail Safety Worker Health Assessment.  This form replaces the Part B of the Request and Report Form (Fit Slip), which is returned to the Rail Transport Operator / Employer.


The Health Assessment Report page can be used for pre-employment, periodic and change of category medical assessments.


The Triggered Health Assessment Report page can be used when a medical assessment has been triggered. It is important to note that the additional Triggered Health Assessment Report includes an important field to capture the last periodic medical, which is used to ensure the correct medical assessment expiry is set in the RIW System.


NOTE: The RIW Service Desk has been instructed to continue accepting old fit slips (Request and Report Form). After the roll-out of the National Fit Slip, all Rail Safety Worker Health Assessments must be completed on either of the above forms. TfNSW will continue to use separate forms for their employees.
