The Champlain BASE eConsult Service

The Champlain BASE™ (Building Access to Specialists through eConsultation) eConsult service is a secure online platform connecting primary care providers and specialists. In many cases, it prevents the need for specialist referral and allows the primary care provider (PCP) to take timely action on next steps of patient care.

The service offers patients more efficient, integrated and coordinated care, and provides improved access to specialty care using low-cost, easy-to-use technology.

The service was developed by PCPs and specialists to alleviate negative impacts on patients’ mental and physical health resulting from increased wait times to access specialist care. The service supports ongoing quality improvement through continuous evaluation and data analysis.

This innovation was implemented as part of the Canadian Foundation of Healthcare Improvement’s Connected Medicine collaborative.
