There is a reason why we have a roadmap

Everything we are building into eConsult is based on keeping your patients safe, first and foremost. With that in mind, we wanted to share our roadmap with you, so you too can see how we’re improving the experience for both clinicians and patients while upholding our clinical safety record. 

eConsult is constantly evolving and improving, and we want you to understand what we are working on and working towards so that you can make informed decisions about your online consultation and triage provider.

New features coming soon

  • SMS – another communication option for you to use with your patients.
  • Video consultation – improved offering via the eConsult toolbar
  • Save a Post Consult Message to the Patient record for EMIS practices
