Across the province, the use of eConsult – the service that helps physicians and nurse practitioners get answers about their patients’ care quickly – is growing! The response from healthcare providers and patients is overwhelmingly positive.


The College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada support eConsult as a standard of practice.


The Ontario eConsult Program was created to enable timely and equitable access to specialist advice for all patients in Ontario. Physicians and nurse practitioners receive a response within days, often eliminating the need for an in-person specialist visit. 


There are 81 specialty groups now available to answer your questions about your patients care and many local specialists are now available on the system.


If you are not yet on the system, please try it: you will find it easy, efficient and effective. If you are signed-up but not regularly using the service, please try it again.


For more information about how to make eConsult a regular part of your practice, or for a refresher please contact Wendy Lang [email protected]


We also offer MainPro credits!
