Infographic: What is eConsult?


Electronic Consultation, or as its more commonly known, eConsult provides the primary care physician (PCP) the ability to communicate electronically through secure, web-based email with a specialist and receive advice and counsel to determine whether a referral is truly needed, and if not, help the PCP determine the right course of treatment.

Created by PHI's Center for Connected Health Policy, this infographic is designed to help increase the public’s understanding of eConsult and its benefits.
