Electronic Multidisciplinary Conference (eMDC): Case Planning in the Virtual Space

Jonathan Treisman, MD, FACP, Medical Director of Oncology, St. Francis Hospital

Challenged by the limitations of a traditional tumor board, Ascension SE Wisconsin Hospital developed a dynamic discussion platform not hindered by time and location constraints. The eMDC model facilitates a prospective, real-time approach to case planning, allowing the care team to view case information and engage in ongoing dialogue with their peers at any time. After a one-year pilot, the number of patients discussed by the interdisciplinary team increased four-fold, and the hospital saw significant improvements in care coordination and strengthened communication across the care continuum.
