Find your care

Extensivists can help reduce hospital admissions and improve your quality of life. Call 310-206-6232 to learn more about our extensivist services.

The Extensivist Program is designed to co-manage complex patients with our UCLA primary care and specialty physicians. 

Patients who may benefit from an extensivist consultation:

  • Patients with 2 or more hospital admissions or 4 or more ED visits in 12 months
  • Patients requiring frequent office visits and intensive outpatient management
  • Patients with chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure, cancer, COPD, asthma, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and a history of solid organ transplantation
  • Patients requiring comprehensive care coordination

How to Refer a Patient

The Extensivist Program consists of an in-office consultation with one of our extensivist physicians and a comprehensive evaluation by our extensivist care coordinator. We will determine at the time of office consultation if the patient may be a candidate for enrollment in the Extensivist Program. The visit would not serve as a transfer of care, as we serve as a co-management service. The recommendations and care plan will be shared with you after the visit. 

Follow these steps:

  • Enter the referral to outpatient Extensivist Program (REF 703) order in CareConnect.
  • Extensivist staff will receive an in basket message and reach out to the patient to schedule a consultation with an extensivist physician.
