What Is eMedical? And What Are Its Benefits?

Jan 5, 2022

eMedical is a web-based application that is used for recording and transmitting immigration medical cases between the Panel Physicians and the Immigration Refugee & Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Other countries such as Australia and New Zealand also use the eMedical system. In Canada, only Panel Physicians who are approved and empanelled by the IRCC are given access to eMedical. eMedical consists of various modules including physical medical measurement such as height, weight, vision, blood pressure, etc. Other modules include blood test records and results, urine analysis, as well as chest x-ray examination, and a section to add specialist reports if necessary.

eMedical eliminates any paper-based medical examination process between Panel Physician clinics and the IRCC which means information and files will be transmitted and submitted electronically and instantly, hence avoiding any delays in paper-based submission. eMedical is an easier, faster, and more reliable system to record, process and transmit immigration medical cases. In addition, using eMedical allows photos to be taken electronically, therefore, clients don’t need to take and bring any photos to the clinic. Using eMedical systems, all confidential and private information of clients are transmitted electronically through highly cyber secure and protected systems and servers hence preventing data from being lost or jeopardized.

Once a medical report is processed and submitted to the IRCC, Panel Physicians can’t make any changes to the file. However, if clients are interested in obtaining a copy of their medical report, they can order it through the Panel Physician clinic. Please note, immigration medical reports will only be sent to clients once those reports are first submitted to the IRCC. Immigration Medical Exam reports are expected to be submitted to the IRCC within 10 days of the medical exam. On the day of the medical exam, once all the client’s information is entered into eMedical, an information sheet is created, printed and handed to clients to retain as a proof and reference of completion of their medical exam.

Our clinic, the Immigration Medical Centre located in Oakville is 100% eMedical, which means all immigration, work permit, visa extension, and refugee medical exams are processed through eMedical, which is faster, easier and more reliable and efficient than paper-based system. To save even more of our clients’ time, our Immigration Medical Centre clinic and associated x-ray radiology clinic are both located in one building. Therefore all tests are completed in one day, (within 90 minutes), and in one building.
