Five Ways eConsults Support Value-based Care and Diabetes Telehealth

Five Ways eConsults Support Value-based Care

AristaMD offers five ways eConsults support quality patient care that enables a primary care provider, a nurse practitioner, or a PA can submit electronic information to our team of specialists. As a result, eConsults beautifully compliment telehealth while the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services expand the use of value-based payment models.

#1 Help patients avoid unnecessary face-to-face specialty visits

About 70% of eConsults can address what physicians would typically send forward for a face-to-face specialty visit. As a web-based physician-to-physician consultation, there is no need for any particular technology or integration — the PCP orders the referral the same way they would traditionally order one. Or suppose the patient was to go face-to-face for a specialty consult, with the provider using our referral nurse coordination, RNN service, and our nurse navigators. In that case, our nurse will curate the eConsults by grabbing all of the data needed for the patient from the chart. Private health information is then sent to our specialist, who reviews the data and provides an evidence-based response on the best practice and management of that patient. Within four to six hours, the primary care provider receives a notification and can view the eConsult specialist’s recommendations.

The bottom line — for every specialty visit where we serve the patient using an eConsult and address issues through the primary care provider, we can fend off the need for three face-to-face visits. Also, once you gain specific knowledge from a specialist on a particular condition, you have the answer for the same question when it comes up again.
