What is the eConsult toolbar?
Our toolbar allows you to respond more quickly to your patients by email, SMS, video or telephone. It sits above your clinical system to help save you time when responding to patients. Once it is downloaded it will start when your computer does.
How can the toolbar make eConsult management easier?
The free eConsult toolbar allows you to seamlessly:
Pull patient contact details, such as telephone numbers, straight from the active patient record (currently EMIS only)
Save your response straight into the active patient record (currently EMIS only)
Call patients from your computer or own device with click to call
Start a video consultation with your patient and any relevant third parties
Switch between video and telephone consultations easily
Send PDF and RTF files such as sick notes
Share healthcare information directly e.g. NHS-approved leaflets and videos
Find out more about responding to patients and the different channels you can use - all available from the toolbar!
We’re also working on the ability for you to view and manage eConsults directly from within the toolbar!
How to download and install the toolbar
Install and set up in less than 5 minutes.
Install the toolbar on every PC used in the practice.
