Optimized Patient Care
eConsults enable immediate improvements in access time for specialty care. Many factors, including a shortage in specialist doctors, long wait times (often months), geographic proximity, as well as high no show rates are causing significant issues for access to specialty care, especially within the safety-net population.
Increasing care capabilities within the primary care setting has numerous benefits for improving patient outcomes. By enabling PCPs to leverage specialty care expertise, there is a reduction in unnecessary specialist referrals, ED visits and hospital admissions, as well as improvement in quality of care and patient engagement.
The smart care platform results in fewer expensive specialist visits, workups, hospitalizations and ED visits. Patients are able to receive a broader sphere of care within their primary care setting, which can significantly decrease overall healthcare spend.
Patients are able to receive timely access to specialty care within the primary care office, which increases overall satisfaction. This reduces patient burden resulting from transportation, necessary child care and missed work related to face to face visits with specialists.
