How do Specialist LINK and eReferral Advice Request work together?

December 15, 2017

In the Calgary area, there are now two great ways to get timely non-urgent advice for your patient. Call Specialist LINK for a response within one hour, or submit an Alberta Netcare eReferral Advice Request and receive a response within five calendar days. 

Specialist LINK has over 16 enhanced primary care pathways available in addition to non-urgent telephone advice from eight specialty groups including Chronic Pain, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Respirology and Rheumatology. Over 4,000 calls have been made to the service since 2014 and the service continues to grow.

eReferral Advice Request is a secure and efficient process within Alberta Netcare for physician to physician advice. Send an Advice Request when you have a non-urgent question where you are seeking guidance with the management of a patient’s condition or are wondering if a referral is appropriate.
