Below is a brief description of the e-Consult process. If you have further questions please call (414) 266-3456 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1: Once an e-Consult form is submitted, the Clinical Navigation Team will review the e-Consult request. The lead Clinical Navigator (pediatric hospitalists) will either call or e-mail the submitting provider with details on expectations, next step and contact information. (24-48 business hours).
Step 2: The Clinical Navigator will determined whether a single or multiple specialties are needed to complete the e-Consult. If a single specialty is necessary, the team will hand-off the e-Consult to the specialty e-Consult physician leader. If the e-Consult requires more than one specialty, the Clinical Navigator will form a team with the needed specialty e-Consult physician leaders to review the e-Consult. (24-72 business hours).
Step 3: Patient release forms and medical records are gathered by the specialty physician or the Clinical Navigation Team.
Step 4: The specialty physician or the Clinical Navigation Team will create an e-Consult report. The report will contain information on possible advisory opinion, recommended care and next steps.
Step 5: e-Consult is completed and report sent to submitting provider. Total time for e-Consult process typically is estimated to be completed in 10 business day or less unless otherwise noted. In some cases the timeline may extend beyond 10 business days.
