eMD Consults

ADVICE REQUESTS via eConsultations and eReferrals

eMD CONSULTS is an electronic consultation and referral solution that allows Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and Specialists to communicate via eConsultations, providing advice/direction for non-urgent, medical questions regarding patient care. eConsultations support patients and physicians in the community by reducing wait-times for accessing Specialist advice and possibly preventing a referral from entering the system.

If an in-person referral is required, the communication provided from the eConsultation between the PCP and Specialist ultimately ensures the eReferral is appropriate, comprehensive, and complete prior to the in-person consultation.
