How eConsults Help PCPs Benefit From Primary Cares Initiative

In April 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the Primary Cares Initiative, which is expected to reduce administrative burdens and increase patient care while decreasing healthcare costs. Learn more about the proposed Primary Cares Initiative value-based payment models in part one of this two-part blog series. Part two will focus on how eConsults directly support the goals of this initiative.

While the health care landscape has never been static, rarely has it seen such radical changes as it has within recent decades. The United States’ population continues to age, and the prevalence of chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and anxiety or depression contributes to a substantially increased demand for care.
