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   

New specialties were added to Alberta Netcare eReferral Advice and Consult Requests on May 21, 2019.

Physicians and clinical support staff can now submit Consult Requests (i.e. requests for in-person specialist appointments) in the Calgary Zone to:

  • Internal Med - Pulmonary Medicine (IPM)
  • Internal Med - Sleep Medicine (FMC Sleep Centre)
  • Internal Med - Tuberculosis Services (Please search by reasons for referral or by facility (TB))

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry was also released on eReferral Advice Request (i.e. non-urgent questions answered by a specialist within five calendar days) and is available in the Calgary, Central (patients in Red Deer and south) and South AHS Zones.
