Dr. Michael Todd Greene of DocRD® is a workgroup member. Introducing e-Consult MNT (Medical Nutrition Therapy) by DocRD®

Access to specialty care continues to be a major challenge for low-income and under-served populations. In California provider shortages produce long wait times for appointments. Demand continues to outpace the health care system’s ability to meet the needs. California has an ever 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) an e-Consult.

What is e-Consult?
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?
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.
