Referring Veterinarian Consult Request

NEW! Online Portal for Consultations

Background

  • The LVMC has created 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)
  • The Consultation Portal is being implemented initially in Cardiology, Equine Surgery, Equine Internal Medicine, Oncology, Ophthalmology and Small Animal Internal Medicine service units, with plans to expand to other specialty services

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

Other benefits of connecting to the LVMC through CVIS

  • Timely notification of case summaries and test results from patients you referred to the LVMC
  • 24-hour access to patient records and health information
  • Streamlines medical records management
