The team here at the eHealth Centre of Excellence is providing support to both primary care providers and specialists looking to adopt eConsult into their practice workflow.
Through eConsult, primary care providers can reach out to specialists such as Dr. Brian Lyttle, who specializes in Pediatric Respirology.
Dr. Lyttle completed his Medical Degree at the University of Western Ontario and subsequently has been Board Certified in: Family Practice (University of Calgary), Pediatrics (UWO and Dallas Children’s Hospital), Pediatric Pulmonology (Harvard School of Public Health and The Boston’s Children’s Hospital).
Dr. Lyttle’s primary clinic is located in London ON, where more than 5000 children and young adults are followed regularly for their asthma, some for as long as 25 years. He also is active in the the London Pediatric Sleep Clinic.
