e-Consult MNT (Medical Nutrition Therapy) by DocRD

Adapted from e-Consult Toolkit website for DocRD is on Workgroup

Access to specialty care continues to be a major challenge for low-income and underserved of our population. In California and with provider shortages and long wait times for appointments, demand continues to outpace the health care system’s ability to meet the needs of California’s growing low-income patient population.

To address this challenge, many health care professionals, health centers, systems, payers and policy makers are turning to electronic consultation and (with a physician referral as example), or e-Consult.

What is e-Consult?

From the workgroup website: An e-consult, is an asynchronous dialogue initiated by a physician or other qualified health care professional seeking a specialist consultant’s expert opinion without a face-to-face patient encounter with the consultant.

What should I expect from my practitioner?

Adapted from the workgroup website: The specialist will report identified as an  inter-professional consultation. E-consults provided by consultative physicians (or health care professional) should include written reports to the patient’s treating/requesting physician/qualified health care professional.
