Key Challenges

Onsite primary care providers address a vast array of clinical issues, and sometimes specialist input is needed to identify best care.

Securing relevant specialist expertise can be costly.

Impact of eConsults

Providing onsite PCPs with timely access to specialist expertise expedites employees’ pursuit of needed care.

RubiconMD eConsults save measurable time and money for patients and employers.

The Provider Experience

“Using Rubicon MD, I’m able to validate whether or not a patient would benefit by seeing a specialist and get an unbiased opinion based on current clinical practice.”

Becky Castro, Activate FNP

Community Health Centers

We help primary care providers at community health centers improve access to specialty care by connecting them directly to high-quality and efficient specialty electronic consultations.

Key Challenges

Although community health centers provide primary care to all populations, access to specialty care is more limited, especially for uninsured and rural communities.

Safety net clinics often have difficulty maintaining adequate specialty networks and as a result, patients experience long appointment wait times.

Impact of eConsults

eConsults prevent unnecessary waiting and travel time and give patients access to specialty care regardless of their insurance status or income.

Each month, a provider using eConsults avoids > 19 days of a patient waiting to see a specialist.*

The Provider Experience

“As a growing practice, I am always searching for ways to save costs while still providing outstanding care. RubiconMD is like having a broad specialty network, and I love that eConsults afford the opportunity to work together to provide better care.”

Jeff Gold, MD

Health Plans

We help health plans serving all patient populations improve access to specialty care by directly connecting their providers to high-quality and efficient specialty electronic consultations, allowing for avoided referrals and/or improved care coordination.

Key Challenges

Health care reform has increased the number of insured patients, taxing access to specialty services.

The burden is even greater in rural communities.

Impact of eConsults

Consistent access to quality specialists irrespective of income, geographic location, or condition.

These same day eConsults reduce patient wait times and unnecessary travel.

The Provider Experience

“The response from the assigned specialist was so thorough, we avoided a referral to a provider located a three-hour drive away. That's a meaningful difference in the ability to coordinate care.”

Dr. Roy Schindelheim, MD, Chief of Staff, Family Practice Physician, George L. Mee Memorial Hospital

Dr. Schindelheim is using eConsults via the Central California Alliance for Health.
