The Ontario eServices Program and our partners at Ontario Health and Ocean by CognisantMD are excited to announce a new integration which enables clinicians to send eConsults to the Ontario eConsult Service on the directly from their integrated EMR via Ocean. 

The “Ontario eConsult Service” is now available on the OceanHealthMap allowing clinicians to initiate an eConsult using Ocean to submit through to the OTNhub. 

This streamlined workflow allows clinicians to submit eConsults easily, quickly, and independently using the same efficient and reliable workflow they already use for sending Ocean eReferrals. This workflow will: 

  • enhance patient safety and accuracy of information by enabling the seamless flow of patient information and attachments  

  • save the clinician time and significantly reduce the overall transcription effort
