146 Curbside Consults: Might Your State Have a Creative Solution?*

The presentation will discuss consultation logistics. Medicare has interprofessional consultation codes that providers can use to bill for their time reviewing a clinical question (in an asynchronous manner without seeing the patient in person). Taking advantage of these codes could provide your site provider with a clinical learning opportunity and a faster consult at a lower cost. Examples of ways to streamline your consultation favorites will be reviewed.

Educational Objectives

  • Describe the methods that a primary care provider can use to provide broad scope care and reduce the number of off-site requests
  • Review how a PCP can find a specialist to work with initially on an asynchronous basis with an option for care progression
  • Explore ways to objectively evaluate the quality of the specialty consults you receive at your facility
