An E-Consult is a secure electronic communication between your primary care provider and a MidMichigan Health specialist conducted within your medical record.
In many cases, an e-consult can help you avoid a trip to the specialist by giving your provider the information they need to continue managing your condition locally. In other cases, an e-consult confirms that a specialist appointment is needed and helps your provider prepare and order the right tests to ensure a more efficient and successful visit.
E-consults are currently available for a certain conditions within cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry and neurology.
If your doctor determines that an e-consult would benefit you, they will communicate with you and obtain your consent before proceeding.
