Exploring Policy Options for Advancing the Sustainability and Spread of eConsult

Image for Exploring Policy Options for Advancing the Sustainability and Spread of eConsult

In 2017, PHI's Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) produced and disseminated a recommended electronic consultation (eConsult) reimbursement model for the state of California. The goal was to support and accelerate the spread and sustainability of eConsult as a means for improving access to quality specialty care for the underserved. CCHP hosted a forum of policymakers, health plans and provider organizations to disseminate and gain input on the current findings and recommendations, as well as to establish a common baseline of understanding among diverse stakeholders.

CCHP is helping to advance a recommended reimbursement model with steps to achieve legislative and regulatory changes, and/or new reimbursement policies that can account for eConsult visits, and develop and implement an impact measurement framework and participate in technical assistance and joint learning activities.
