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.
For medical Secure-Mail users in Alberta, eMD is accessible from your Secure-Mail account by clicking the "eAdvice/eConsult Request" tab on the left navigation.
