North Rural E-Consult Coalition August 2021 Monthly Meeting
We are pleased to introduce the North Rural E-Consult Coalition (NREC), a group open to providers and stakeholders interested in improving access to specialty care through electronic consult. The NREC is a group of community health centers, health systems, physicians’ groups and health plans working together to create an inclusive program to address implementation needs, streamline referral workflows, and improve patient/member experiences.
Anthem Blue Cross and California Health & Wellness are working together to streamline the electronic consult (e-consult) process for providers, making this service available to all Medi-Cal managed care patients. This program is available at no cost to providers to improve patient access to specialty care and enhance care coordination. ConferMED, the e-consult platform used by a number of clinics, is not third-party software-based, but built into each clinic’s referral workflow.
