Online Consultation

 

Description

The Online Consultation Capability allows Patients/Service Users/Proxies to request and receive support relating to healthcare concerns, at a time and place convenient for them.

Provision of information by the Patient/Service User/Proxy allows the Health or Care Professional dealing with the request to triage requests effectively and make informed decisions about how best to respond - the response could be information or advice, an offer of a consultation, provision of a repeat prescription or a referral to other services. This may be enhanced by the ability to link the request, and the response, to the Patient/Service User's record.

The Capability may provide the Patient/Service User/Proxy with instant self-help advice or sign-post them to relevant services. It also supports the remote delivery of a range of clinical scenarios, including:

  • Clinical consultation

  • Direct care advice (from a Health or Care Professional)

  • report symptoms

  • review of a known problem or condition
