The SCAN-ECHO/E-Consult APN is a clinical position in the Renal/Nephrology Section with administrative responsibility for planning SCAN-ECHO/E-Consult sessions and coordinating the development and implementation of local SCAN-ECHO/E-Consult conferences. The SCAN-ECHO/E-Consult APN is responsible for participating in the development and implementation of the quality, safety, efficiency, and satisfaction outcomes assessment. In addition the APN is responsible for assuring the acquisition of continuing education credit for SCAN-ECHO/E-Consult participants.
SCAN-ECHO is training through the VISN (Veterans Integrated Service Network) on Live Meeting for Primary Care providers (PCPs) by Subspecialty Experts for treatment of their patients. Different formulas for making interactive case discussions between PCPs and our subspecialty group into SCAN-ECHO presentations are being utilized. One involves a case study that the PCP presents via Tandberg connection or locally and then one or more of the Subspecialty group discuss the best way to treat this patient and diagnosis so that all VISN providers can learn about this condition.
E-Consults are requests entered into the electronic clinical record either for a rapid written or phone response to a focused question, a Tandberg-to-Tandberg interactive long distance visit or a traditional face-to-face appointment at our site. This patient care activity may lead to a SCAN-ECHO session between the referring PCP and one of more of our group.
The overall goal is to use advanced communication and imaging technology to facilitate interaction and education between our subspecialty group and VISN providers and to provide more accessible and convenient subspecialty care for our Veteran patients across a huge geographic area.
