Bluewater Health has begun using the Ocean eReferrals platform. Primary care providers can currently use the electronic referral system to request diagnostic imaging tests, pulmonary function tests and the Musculoskeletal Rapid Assessment Centre, and will receive notification of the appointment assigned to the patient. The system can accommodate instructions and attachments for the patient, and allows better appointment management for the hospital. Other benefits include integration with primary care providers’ Electronic Medical Record (EMR), enhanced notification of referral status and appointment and decreased need for follow-up. The platform will be expanded to other programs, with the hope to include all outpatient areas in the future. If your office has not yet had an opportunity to join the Ocean eReferral network please email ESC-eReferral@lhins.on.ca.
