e-Consult is a secure, provider-to-provider communication service that was developed to improve access to specialist care for general practitioners. However, at The Ottawa Hospital, it has become a useful way of linking primary care to people living with HIV. The goal of this project was to use e-consult to transition patients to primary care by setting up links to HIV specialists, HIV pharmacists, social workers and psychologists, reducing the need for face-to-face visits with a specialist.
