eReferral

Alberta Netcare eReferral was developed by clinicians, for clinicians.

eReferral leverages existing information from Alberta Netcare (such as demographics, labs, and diagnostic imaging) into a referral form that can be saved as a draft, checked for completeness and tracked in real time as it is submitted, received, triaged and scheduled for an appointment.  

Status

On Dec. 6, 2018, three new specialties were added to Alberta Netcare eReferral to accept Consult Requests (i.e. requests for in-person appointments with specialists).
