eConsults Assist with Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnosis & Medication Management
Accessing specialty care pediatrics can help accurately diagnose and provide medication management for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be challenging, particularly for individuals living in rural or underserved areas. ASD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction and behavior. Early diagnosis and intervention are crucial for improving outcomes and managing symptoms for individuals with ASD.
eConsults offer a potential solution to this challenge by giving patients and healthcare providers access to specialists from anywhere. eConsults can enable specialists to review patient information, provide guidance and support to primary care providers, and collaborate with other healthcare professionals to ensure patients receive appropriate testing and medication management.
eConsults can also help increase efficiency in the diagnostic process by reducing wait times for appointments and enabling specialists to review patient information more quickly and accurately. A study published in JAMA Pediatrics earlier this year reported that pediatricians diagnose ASD successfully in almost all cases. While the study did not address the diagnostic performance of general practitioners, using eConsult can support early diagnosis and help reduce the likelihood of misdiagnosis or missed diagnoses, which can have significant consequences for patients and their families.
