Nova Scotia Selects OceanMD for Electronic Surgical Consult Referrals to Help Reduce Wait Times

Prnewswire | April 05, 2023

WELL Health Technologies Corp. a digital healthcare company focused on positively impacting health outcomes by leveraging technology to empower healthcare practitioners and their patients globally, is pleased to announce that pursuant to an announcement made on March 29, 2023, the Province of Nova Scotia is introducing a new electronic tool, Ocean eReferrals, to manage surgical referrals and make the process more efficient for physicians and patients. This new system will help patients receive better information on the status of their referral and will lead to shorter wait times in the long run. The goal is to improve the process of sending and receiving surgical referrals for both primary care providers and surgeons, to support improved access and provide better information to support planning and care. Nova Scotia's Health and Wellness Minister, Michelle Thompson, stated "Waiting for care is hard for patients and their families. It's also frustrating for healthcare professionals when they don't have the information to answer their patients' questions. Nova Scotians deserve short wait times that will keep them out of pain and allow them to move on with their lives." Jeff Kavanagh, CEO of OceanMD, a subsidiary of WELL, commented, "We are thrilled to work with the Province of Nova Scotia to address the growing need for an electronic referral system across the entire province. We applaud the work of the Department of Health and Wellness in leading this initiative to create an efficient process to reduce wait times and provide critical information to the people of Nova Scotia." Through the new system, primary care providers will send their requests for surgical consultations via e-referral, rather than faxing, emailing, or mailing requests directly to a surgeon. This method of referral will enable better tracking, review, and management of referrals, and will eventually include consult wait time information to help ensure patients have faster access to care. Patients who provide their email address and referring providers will receive automatic notifications when their referral is received, forwarded to a surgeon, and when a consult is booked or changed. This feature will provide patients with greater visibility into the referral process and enable them to stay informed throughout their journey. Ocean eReferrals was made available to primary care providers and surgeons at Nova Scotia Health and IWK Health as of Friday, March 31, 2023.
