Managing the PCP Referral Process with Less Staff and Money
When the patient referrals add up, you realize that sometimes it takes a crisis to force us to consider other options. One of the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic for physician practices is the need for primary care physicians to refer patients to specialist is increasing while the resources (staff and money) with which to accomplish the tasks are diminished. The traditional primary care to specialist referral process is very labor intensive requiring multiple telephone calls and faxes. An alternative to consider is to automate the referral process through a cloud-based program. Adopting a cloud- based referral systems such as Preferral is a very cost efficient and effective way to facilitate making and receiving patient referrals.
Referral management can completely eliminate the need to have telephone calls or faxes between your offices and the referring physicians.
