Thomas Is Senior Author on Paper Evaluating Environmental Benefits of Econsults

John “Fred” Thomas, PhD, professor of pediatrics and public health and executive director of the Peer Mentored Care Collaborative (PMCC) at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, is senior author of an article published by Telemedicine and e-Health about the environmental benefits using econsults to deliver care. The authors, six members of the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, reviewed 15,499 econsults between July 2018 and December 2022 from PMCC. Among the benefits they tally are a reduction of 310,858 miles of in-state travel distance, 5,491 hours of saved travel time, fuel reduction of 13,575 gallons, and a reduction of 77 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
