The Real-world Efficacy of Antiviral therapy in Chronic Hepatitis C (REACH-C) study is a national project which aims to evaluate uptake and outcomes of direct anti-viral therapy for hepatitis C in diverse clinical settings across Australia.

As part of the REACH-C study, ASHM and the Kirby Institute have developed an online form that medical practitioners, who are not experienced in hepatitis C treatment can complete to gain specialist approval to initiate DAA therapy for their patient. The anticipated turn-around time for specialist approval sought via the REACH-C online form is 24 hours.

Once the required data is entered into the online form, it will automatically be sent to a specialist who will review the data and provide the approval to initiate therapy or request further information. The de-identified patient data entered will be collected for the REACH-C Study.
