Yes, Shift Imaging went live on Alberta NetCare March 28th, 2022 and referring physicians can access our reports through the Connect Care interface by navigating to the NetCare section. Shift Imaging can accept referrals from Connect Care in addition to any other signed requisition. In addition to NetCare, our Physicians may use the Physician Portal to review patient order status, scheduled date, images and reports. Please contact us at email@example.com to register.
The easiest way to book your exam is to confirm your doctor has faxed us the requisition before calling the clinic. For non-emergent cases, we ask you wait 24 hours between the time your requisition was faxed and calling Shift Imaging to book. This allows us to prepare your order so we can book you in a timely manner. Patients who don’t call to book 24 hours after their requisition has been faxed, will be contacted by our bookings team as soon as we process your order, this can take up to 5 days for non-urgent and follow-up exams. Walk in X-ray patients are encouraged to come with a signed paper requisition. You can download, print, and take a requisition to your Doctor here.

Depending on how quickly the exam goes (some are easier than others due to fetal positioning) the Technologist may be able to show your family members a few images at the end of the exam. This policy is subject change in accordance with Ministry of Health orders and the status of the covid-19 pandemic.
