The Ontario eConsult Program leverages a secure web-based tool that allows physicians and nurse practitioners timely access to specialist advice for all patients, often eliminating the need for an in-person referral. Physicians and nurse practitioners can access specialist advice in two ways:
- BASE Managed Specialty Model
(Access to a group of specialists by clinical area)
- Direct to Specialist Model
(Access to individual specialists by name or practice)
Accessed primarily through the secure OTNhub, the Ontario eConsult program is led by the Ontario eConsult Centre of Excellence and housed at the Ottawa Hospital in partnership with the Bruyére Institute.
