What is an e-consult and what can I use it for?
With an e-consult you can ask your healthcare provider an online question. In case your healthcare provider uses the e-consult, the e-consult functionality is visible on the Dashboard of your Healthspace.
The text on this button can differ from Healthspace to Healthspace, like Request E-consult or Make an appointment. Either way you can recognize the button by this conversation balloon:
If you can not find this button please contact your clinician or our support through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Possible questions or topics for the e-consult:
chronical ilnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes or astma
lifestyle advice, such as losing weight, food, alcohol use and quitting smoking
physical complaints for which you have already seen your clinician
earlier consults with your healthcare provider
Not suitable for the e-consult (please contact your healthcare provider for advice or an appointment):
if you are not sure whether your question is urgent
worsening or changing complaints
questions about emotional complaints
The e-consult is not free, but is covered by your healthcare insurence.
