eConsults: Removing Barriers and Enhancing Healthcare

Access to high-quality, affordable healthcare is critical to equitable communities. However, underserved and low-income patients commonly face barriers in accessing healthcare, especially specialty services like dermatology and psychiatry visits. Factors that can determine a patient's ability to obtain convenient care include finances, insurance status, stigma, transportation and wait times for appointments. This inequity in access can lead to adverse health outcomes, as patients are forced to delay or forgo critical medical care.

We’re sharing the power of eConsults to help remove these constraints while empowering primary care providers to effectively serve their patients.
