Mater Hospital Brisbane offers a ‘Request for Advice’ (RFA) service to support GPs wanting access to specialist cardiology, endocrinology and dermatology advice on diagnostic and/or treatment options for their patients.
This is not a referral to Mater, but is a request for timely clinical advice which may eliminate the need for a specialist face-to-face outpatient consultation.
The service uses a secure messaging platform and is asynchronous. GPs will receive feedback from the Mater eConsultant team within 3 business days.
Mater eConsultant is easily accessed using a template set up within the practice software system. Email: email@example.com details of your practice software system and you will be sent the eConsultant templates to install.
To access the Request for Advice service GPs should follow the following steps:
Mater has expanded the scope of our eConsultant program in 2023, with dermatology and endocrinology specialists available, in addition to cardiology.
From March 2024, Mater eConsultant will expand to a further five specialties
