					Colleagues,

With one call to RAAPID you can access timely consultation, referral, admission, discharge, and
repatriation for all patients in Alberta. Now a provincial entity, RAAPID provides a single point
of contact for coordinating seamless transitions of care. RAAPID stands for Referral, Access,
Advice, Placement, Information & Destination (formerly SARCC/CCL/UCL/RPTO).

One call does it all.
To contact RAAPID, call:
NORTH 1-800-282-9911
SOUTH 1-800-661-1700

RAAPID can help you:
  • Access critical and/or urgent consultation with a specialist, and if necessary facilitate
     transfers to a tertiary care facility;
  • Arrange repatriation to return the patient to their sending institution or closest health
     care facility within their community following an acute episode;
  • By archiving calls to serve as a legitimate medical record.


With plans to tour rural sites around Alberta in the next couple of months, watch for the RAAPID
