Improve Access to Specialty Care Treatment
Patients with complex medical conditions in New Jersey sometimes wait up to six months to see a specialist. eConsults promises reduced wait times and responses within 48 hours.
Improve Patient Outcomes and Quality of Life
An eConsult can help improve communication between primary care providers and specialists and decrease avoidable or ambulatory sensitive referrals, preventable emergency room visits and hospital admissions.
