Online Portal for Consultations


  • The LVMC has a unified online portal for requesting consultations from our specialty services
  • The Consultation Portal allows our referral partners to submit consultation requests directly through the LVMC’s secure medical records system (CVIS)

Benefits of the Consult Portal

  • Expedited initial consultation process
  • Direct and secure communication with specialists
  • Ability to share patient bloodwork, radiographs, and other images directly through the portal
  • Improved communications – no more “phone tag”!
  • Send and receive messages at your convenience

If you need to submit case information to ask questions of an LVMC clinician regarding the management of a patient not currently being treated by the LVMC, including potential referral cases that you need medical advice for.

Consults remain open for 24-48 hours and can be re-opened with no additional fee for up to three months. Note: Selection of this option will result in a $50 charge to your ISU VMC Clinic account upon submission.

  2. Sign in using your clinic’s CVIS user credentials (OR request a new account by completing a CVIS Pre-Registration Form)
