Project CORE: Coordinating Optimal Referral Experiences

Over the past decade, the use of subspecialty medical services has risen rapidly in the United States, with referrals to specialists more than doubling. As referrals have risen, current processes are increasingly overwhelmed which impairs patients’ access to specialists, raises costs, and increases the risk of care fragmentation.

Through Project CORE, the AAMC is working with over 20 Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) to implement a new care delivery model that improves the patient referral process between primary and specialty care. To accomplish this, Project CORE implements eConsults and enhanced referrals within the AMC’s EMR system, a model originally developed and piloted at the University of California, San Francisco.
