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.


Provider Notifications now live

On May 30, 2019, Provider Notifications went live. eReferral users will now receive email notifications when an activity occurs on an Advice or Consult Request.

To ensure you are receiving Provider Notifications, please confirm or update your email address to a current preferred email address (this is the address that notifications will be sent to). For instructions, please visit the eReferral Provider Notifications Portal

You will be automatically subscribed by default to a notification list based on your role (i.e. whether you are a referrer, receiver or triage user), but you can customize these subscriptions at any time.

For training support, visit the Alberta Netcare Learning Centre for Quick References or call the eHealth Netcare Support Services team at 1-855-643-8649 or email
