Electronic Consult Best Practices for Primary and Specialty Care Providers
E-consults are a new concept to many providers – although some may be accustomed to “curbside consults”. This series will provide primary and specialty care use cases for e-consults, fill any knowledge gaps in constructing effective e-consult questions and answers, and provide tools to convey e-consult results to patients.
