What our Clients & Providers Say
“In the case of dermatology, eConsults have essentially leveled the playing field between Medicaid and private insurance in terms of convenience, access and expertise. Consults that used to take months, if ever, with difficult commutes for patients, now occur in the space of days, over the phone, in the primary care clinic, or, if necessary, at the specialty clinic. It’s a game changer for sure.”
“Using eConsults has improved my effectiveness in managing complex medical conditions for our patients with a timely turnaround and with so little effort- the patient never has to travel or worry about cost. It has allowed me to provide access to specialty care that may otherwise not be financially feasible for the patient- and they love that I can treat them in the office or simply with a phone call. I use it often, and the results have been amazing.”
“Timely access to specialty consults is a challenge in many of our communities. eConsults not only provide a high quality, thorough and helpful electronic “curbside consult”, but allow patients to remain in the care of their primary care team a significant majority of the time. We have found it to be an invaluable additional tool in our care for our patients and community.”
