About ConferMED

ConferMED supports practices nationwide looking to improve access and reduce the cost of specialty care.

We saw major problems with access to specialty care. We developed a simple solution.

As providers, we experienced first hand how difficult it is for the communities we serve to get specialty care.

Timely access to specialty care for patients is limited, especially in rural areas and underserved communities.

The delay in accessing specialty care results in increased morbidity, inefficiency and cost.

Specialty care is a significant contributor to rising healthcare expenses.

We found existing eConsult programs lacking. So we built our own.

Current e-consultation products are largely software-based and require additional financial and technological burdens. ConferMED addresses those problems.

ConferMED is an affordable, high-quality product that does not place financial stress on community health organizations

Work within your existing EHR to get your patients access to specialty care - no new software or installations necessary

All of this works together to help you move knowledge - not patients
