Note for Ontario Users: In Ontario, Ocean eConsults are currently in a limited release. For more information on eConsult in Ontario as part of the Ontario eServices Program, please review the Overview of eConsults in Ontario article.
Once you're set up to receive eConsults and/or eReferrals, you can optionally choose to set up Website Forms on your website to accept Ocean eConsults and/or Ocean eReferrals from both your website and the Ocean Healthmap.
This step is an optional part of setting up your site to receive eConsults and/or eReferrals.
- Ocean lets you accept eConsults and/or eReferrals, not only from the Ocean Healthmap, but also from a secure page on your clinic’s website, called Website Forms.
- For example, Cambridge Memorial Hospital accepts Ocean eReferrals for diagnostic imaging and MRI on the "DI and MRI Request for Consultation" page of their website.
- All consults and referrals submitted through Website Forms will go to into your central eReferrals & eConsults View in the Ocean Portal.
To learn how to set up a submission page on your website, check out our Website Forms Creation Guide.
There are no Ocean license fees associated with setting up an eReferral Website Form link for referring providers to use.
If you would like to set up a self-referral link for patients to use, then Ocean's standard Website Form fees will apply. If your Ocean site has a listing under Regional Authority (RA), a single Website Form link, that is configured to be submitted as an eReferral, will be covered under the RA license.
