Description

Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Primary care physicians and other clinicians can learn to provide excellent specialty care directly to patients in their own practices. By connecting with a subspecialty team of experts and building a community of practice via telemedicine, primary care physicians are able to increase knowledge, mastery and joy of medical practice. In some regions, patients often wait weeks or even months to see a specialist. Visiting a specialist may also require them to travel great distances. In some situations, patients may be unable to travel and therefore do not receive the additional specialty care they need. This can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening for both clinicians and patients, particularly when patients with chronic conditions might need to see a specialist several times a year. This module will educate physicians on ways to build specialty care access through expert specialty mentoring and education via telemedicine.
