Secure Communication for Healthcare

Anywhere, at Any Time

The dr2dr platform allows for fully secure, confidential and instantaneous communication between physicians, clinic staff and other health professionals.

dr2dr Secure Messaging builds on the dr2dr application developed by Microquest. The AMA has been working in partnership with Microquest to guide updates, improvements, and ensure dr2dr adds the most value to Alberta physicians.

The long-term plan is to include other providers (e.g., pharmacists, nurse practitioners) and ultimately patients in the secure messaging system.

While dr2dr secure messaging can be used in many clinical settings, it serves three primary functions:

  • Facilitates the rapid exchange of clinical information
  • Enables the quick and efficient gathering/solicitation of clinical advice
  • Provides electronic consultation capabilities that are significantly more efficient, secure and reliable than the fax machine and telephone
