At Alberta Health Services (AHS), the provincial system of record for health referral information is the Alberta Referral Directory (ARD). The ARD was developed through a partnership with the Alberta Medical Association, Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services, to ease the complexities of the referral process.
The ARD is a secure, online directory that provides access to service and consultant (physician) demographics, referral guidelines, referral forms and detailed instructions to efficiently and effectively facilitate referral acceptance without delay.
How do I get support in using the Alberta Referral Directory?
