The Art of Cultivating Referrals

Patient referrals are the lifeblood for specialists and clinics across the country. Not only are they an integral part of ensuring that patients receive the care and attention they need, but they are also a main source of revenue for practices in a very competitive market place.

We don’t have to crunch the numbers to grasp that this is a sphere of healthcare in need of improvement and innovation. So, why does this happen?

Enhancing Your Practice’s Accessibility with Health IT

Tech tools should increase healthcare access for everyone, and information technology (IT) has the potential to do just that for patients who have trouble getting the care they need.

The referral gap affects patients and practices throughout the healthcare industry, and it results in billions of dollars in wasted healthcare spending. In 2011 alone, that number might have been as high as $45 billion, according to a study from the Archives of Internal Medicine. One major way that the referral gap plays out in the real world is that while eighty percent of specialists say that they send consultation results to primary care providers, only about 62 percent of those PCPs say that they receive that information. Does that sound familiar? That’s because it’s an incredibly widespread problem. If you’re ready to address […]
