Synovation Medical Group is developing a telemedicine program to expand the reach of its musculoskeletal and pain management services. Current programs include e-consult LA, a project which allows primary care providers to contact specialty pain providers to collaborate with specialty pain physicians using a secure online message program. Synovation is also performing real-time consultations with Partnership HealthPlan of California using phone consultations to discuss patient cases with medical internists in underserved parts of central and northern California. Programs in development include connecting to patients and other providers through telehealth video encounters and prescribing pain medications remotely for select patients within our practice.
