    Nathaniel Gleason, MD, attended UCSF for his medical degree and residency training in General Internal Medicine. He serves as Medical Director for Practice Innovation for UCSF Health, focusing innovations that improve access to timely, high-value care in the outpatient setting.

    Dr. Gleason developed an eConsult program at UCSF, offering primary care providers timely access to specialist expertise and allowing patients to avoid the travel, work absence, and other costs associated with a visit to the specialist’s office. With funding from the UC Office of the President and a Medicare innovation grant with Association of American Medical Colleges, Dr. Gleason leads dissemination of this eConsult platform across all UC Health Systems and additional Academic Medical Centers nationally. The implementation grants provided firsthand experience leading teams at each campus to understand barriers and facilitators of adoption of innovations by providers and the iterative refinement of the user experience of the new tools and services.

    Dr. Gleason is Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine where he practices as a primary care physician and teaches medical students and residents.
