About the eConsult platform
eConsult allows the patient to have an online consultation with his doctor, dentist, speech therapist or midwife. This consultation takes place either by audio or video.
Why launching a teleconsultation platform?
In order to facilitate access to medical care, the Government has mandated the Agence eSanté to set up a global teleconsultation system. All citizens must have simple, secure and free access to a teleconsultation platform. This measure is essential in order to limit travel and therefore the risk of contamination. It also allows doctors in quarantine to continue to practice their profession.
How does it work ?
The patient and the doctor register on the platform. Then, the patient can request an appointment with the doctor by consulting his diary. Doctor and patient then come into contact by teleconsultation.
Why use eConsult for teleconsultation ?
eConsult allows teleconsultation to be carried out in a secure environment suitable for remote consultation. In addition, eConsult automatically sends at the end of the consultation all the information to ensure the follow-up of the sick patient (e.g. pharmacy, laboratory, CNS).
What to do with the various documents that the doctor has drawn up during the teleconsultation ?
All the documents drawn up by the doctor as part of the teleconsultation are automatically made available to you through your eConsult account. You will receive notification of the filing of these documents by email. Read below if there is a specific action you need to take for each of these documents:
Certificate of incapacity for work
The certificate of incapacity for work is made up of three parts:
- Part n ° 1: is automatically sent to the CNS
- Part n ° 2: is to be kept by you
- Part n ° 3: is to be printed and sent to your employer
Prescription of medicines
Please print the prescription issued by the doctor:
- if it has a QR-code at the bottom left: you can go to the pharmacy of your choice. The pharmacist can retrieve this prescription via his computer system by entering your registration number.
