The UCSF Center for Excellence in Primary Care of the Department of Family and Community Medicine has partnered with the Center for Care Innovations to develop an online care integration resource center to better aid primary care providers, care managers, senior clinic leadership, and other health professionals – as well as patients – to help tackle a vital effort to knit together a network that provides coordinated, comprehensive primary care.
Dr. Delphine Tuot of the UCSF Center for Innovation in Access and Quality (CIAQ) and Dr. Nwando Olayiwola of the UCSF Center for Excellence in Primary Care (CEPC) were recently awarded a Blue Shield of California Foundation technical assistance grant for spreading adoption of eConsults in the safety net. eConsultation and referral systems (eCR) are delivery system innovations that enable primary care providers and specialists to consult electronically about a patient’s conditions, determine the optimal manner of care, and engage in effective co-management of patient conditions.
