The success of digital health initiatives like eConsult in the Southeast region would not be possible without the stellar work of the following nurse practitioners and physicians.
Sending eConsults has never been easier in the Southeast region thanks to SEAMO’s virtual clerk pilot project. In its initial stages in February 2022, this project launched with seven primary care providers (PCPs) from across the region and one clerk to triage eConsults to specialists in Ontario. The project’s process is the virtual eConsult clerk submits the eConsults and retrieves the response on behalf of the PCPs. Currently, the pilot project has expanded to 28 PCPs and added another clerk in operation.
Since beginning their eConsult service 18 months ago, Dr. Michael Yacob is pleased to say the vascular surgery group is seeing a significant decrease in referrals that normally get bounced back and forth via fax communication.
