Rheumatologists clinics offer personalized care for patients with a wide range of rheumatic conditions. They treat patients suffering from all types of arthritis and systemic rheumatic diseases. A typical appointment at a rheumatology clinic involves an extensive examination and a variety of tests. The doctor will also administer various prescription medications to patients, depending on the severity of the disease and their symptoms. Rheumatologists clinics can improve communication with patients by using patient portals and standardized email reminders. This can make scheduling appointments easier and eliminate the need for multiple appointments. This method can also be used to reach out to patients with special medical conditions. Patients can request online appointments by logging into MyChart. Rheumatologists clinics can improve access to health care through the use of multidisciplinary care teams. A recent study conducted in BC showed a 74% increase in the average number of patients seen per week and a higher patient satisfaction rating. This result is consistent with previous research and suggests that MCA can increase access to rheumatology care. The study also suggests that a nurse-led approach can improve continuity of care. Patients in British Columbia may be able to access a rheumatologist's care through new payment models. The BCSR hopes that this new approach will increase access to rheumatologists' services. However, there are some potential risks associated with the new billing model.
