The Hopkins Access Line (HAL)  –for Physicians only–

The Hopkins Access Line (HAL) is a consultation and referral service provided by Johns Hopkins Medicine. HAL’s toll-free number – operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week – was created in response to the growing needs of physicians to reach Hopkins physicians quickly. HAL gives practicing physicians and faculty the opportunity to assist one another in the diagnosis and care of patients.

As a physician, your call will be received by a HAL service representative. Our representatives have access to Hopkins physicians’ schedules, on-call lists, and telephone and pager numbers – all the numbers needed to reach the physician promptly. If you wish to speak with a specific physician and he or she is unavailable, the representative will direct you to an available specialist or arrange for the requested physician to return your call.

tumorboard= indicates Major Cancer Centers with Tumor Boards and/or Multidisciplinary Teams.

Cholangiocarcinoma can be difficult to both diagnose and treat. If possible, newly diagnosed patients should go to a major cancer center or medical institution that provides cholangiocarcinoma patients the option to have their specific case seen by a tumor board and/or multidisciplinary team before receiving any kind treatment.

A tumor board consists of a medical oncologist, surgical oncologist and a radiation oncologist – this team would jointly view your medical records making a recommendation for the best course of treatment for each individual patient.

A multi-disciplinary team consists of the above (a medical oncologist, surgical oncologist and a radiation oncologist) plus any or all of the following: Interventional Radiologist, Advanced Gastroenterologist, Cancer Registrar, Genetic Counselor, Clinical Trial Coordinator.
