Nathaniel Gleason, MD, attended Brown University and then earned his medical degree at UCSF, where he was awarded the UCSF Gold-Headed Cane from his peers for possessing the qualities of true physicianship. He completed his residency training in General Internal Medicine and Primary Care at UCSF and received the Jeffrey Weingarten Award. He now practices as a primary care physician at UCSF and focuses on innovations and technology to improve access to specialty care at lower cost.
In 2013, Dr. Gleason received a CHQI Fellowship to support development of an eReferral platform (decision support at the point of care) with an eConsult option. eConsults – information-only exchanges that allow primary care providers to obtain guidance from specialists via electronic consultation in appropriate cases – offer patients timely access to specialist expertise, without the travel, work absence, and insurance co-pay associated with an office visit. The program significantly reduced referral rate and improved specialty care access time for UCSF primary care patients.
In January 2014, Dr. Gleason received a CHQI award to develop the UCSF eReferral and eConsult platform across the UC Health System. This project, now dubbed the “Real Time Referral Platform”, with a team at UCSF team and at each partner campus, will implement the program at UC Davis, UC San Diego, and UC Los Angeles in 2014-2015.
Dr. Gleason serves as the Electronic Health Record (APeX) Physician-Lead for the Division of General Internal Medicine at UCSF and is an innovator in the use of technology in the clinical setting.
