How telehealth systems, like eConsults, benefit health systems

4 Ways eConsults Benefit and Create Value for Fee-For-Service Health Systems

Featured in Healthcare Innovation, Industry Voice, April 5, 2019 | By Chris Jaeger, Advisor for ACO and Health System Strategy

In particular, eConsults benefit both the patient and provider by enhancing the quality of care, efficiency, and experience.

While healthcare spending is higher in the U.S. than in many other countries, the U.S. isn’t leading its peers in clinical outcomes. In fact, it was ranked last place among the 11 countries for health outcomes, equity, and quality, despite having the highest per capita health earnings. Although hospitals are only one component of a health system, they are facing huge barriers in achieving quality and efficiency improvement.
