Dear eConsult primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, specialists, delegates and eConsult partners,

As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, OTN and the eConsult Centre of Excellence have created a COVID-19 BASETM managed eConsult specialty group. This group enables physicians and nurse practitioners to ask clinical questions to infectious disease specialist electronically and receive a response within days. This is the only group that allows for population-based, non-patient specific clinical questions.

The COVID-19 BASE™ Managed Specialty Group is now available province-wide:

  • Accessed through the BASE™ managed specialty option and listed under Infectious Disease and Public Health
  • A group of Infectious Disease  specialists who can answer both patient-specific and general questions about COVID-19
  • For non-patient specific questions please enter the patient information as follows:
    • First Name: COVID19
    • Last Name: COVID19
    • Date of Birth: 1900-01-01
    • Select OHIP number not available
  • Please note: Patient screening for COVID-19 must still be done through Public Health Services.

If you need a refresher on how to submit an eConsult, you can watch out training video here:

Please note, specialists also have the ability to submit eConsults both to this group and to all other specialty groups and specialists.
