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 

As of June 2018, new specialties have been added to Alberta Netcare eReferral for advice requests and consult requests.

Advice requests:
• Calgary Zone – Chronic Pain, General Surgery (Breast) and Palliative Medicine 
• Central Zone – Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Otolaryngology and Urology
• Edmonton Zone – Infectious Disease, OBS/GYN and Urology (Paeds)
• Provincial wide (available to all Zones) – Ophthalmology (Adult and Paeds)
