How eConsults Can Help You?

An e-consult or online medical consultation is an asynchronous, physician-to-physician communication about a patient’s chief complaint or current condition that leverages the expertise of a physician specialist. Electronic consultations, or eConsults, are often initiated by a primary care provider (PCP) seeking a specialist’s expert opinion about the appropriate diagnosis or treatment for a patient.
