We are pleased to share upcoming improvements to regionalization and workflow of the Ontario eConsult Service, which will be available on November 1st, 2019.

Making access to specialists in your region easier

  • Improving access to specialists is what the Ontario eConsult Service is all about. When selecting Priority Regions, you’ll choose the regions that mirror your typical referral pathways.
  • When using the BASE™ Managed Specialty option, your eConsult will be directed to specialty groups in your selected regions when available.
  • Where there is no specialty coverage in your region, your eConsults will be submitted to the Provincial BASE™ Managed Groups. 

Improving efficiency and functionality

This enhancement will also include:

  • Case Assignment Automation: enabling your questions to be seen by specialists and ensuring responses are completed in a timely manner.
    • Automated case assignment will begin on Tuesday, November 5th for the South East Region.
  • Improved Functionality and Ease of Access to eConsult Settings: access to your eConsult settings will now be conveniently located in your eConsult dashboard.
