Pathways is available to Pacific Northwest Division members and their staff to access specialist and specialty clinic services, contact information, and wait times.

Pathways is an online resource that allows GPs and their office staff to quickly access current and accurate referral information, including wait times and areas of expertise or limitation, for specialists and specialty clinics. In addition, Pathways makes available hundreds of patient and physician resources that are categorized and searchable.  

The key goals of Pathways include:

  • Allowing GPs to identify the most appropriate specialist with the shortest wait time.
  • Simplify the patient referral process by easily identifying specific areas of practice offered by each specialist and clinic.
  • Providing GPs with the most up-to-date information possible to ensure appropriateness of referrals.
  • Decreasing the incidence of re-referrals, thereby increasing the efficiency of patient care.

Pathways Medical Care Directory

Pathways Medical Care Directory: It’s a new province-wide public directory that helps people connect to care. It includes individual family doctor listings with information about their virtual care options plus which doctors are accepting new patients, and information about new virtual care clinics for patients who don’t have family doctors. Each clinic listing will provide basic contact info, relevant patient instructions and a link to your own clinic website (if you have one). For offices without websites, your Pathways Medical Care Directory listing can serve as a public webpage for your clinic.  For more information click here.

Family Physicians, Specialist Physicians, and Nurse Pratitioners can enter their telehealth/virtual care information HERE.
