The RACE (Rapid Access to Consultative Expertise) program offers a telephone number providing family physicians access to specialty services for practical guidance and advice regarding assessment, management and treatment plans for the patient. Cardiology services include General Cardiology, Heart Failure, Cardiac Transplant, and Cardiovascular Risk & Lipid Management. Callers will be connected directly to the Cardiologist’s cell phone or pager. If a specialist is not available immediately, he or she will return to the call within 2 hours (the majority of calls are returned within 10 minutes). Calls average from 5 to 15 minutes in length. GPs can bill for this urgent telephone conference using fee code G14018. The RACE program will provide assistance with a plan of care, but does not arrange for appointment booking, patient transfer, diagnostic investigations or hospital admission.
