The journey of a referral once received by a hospital is of critical importance. The referral must be traceable at all times, yet with paper being passed through many hands this can be a difficult task.
Know exactly where a referral is at any point in time, allow multiple people to access a referral at the same time and identify any bottle necks in the referral management process.
Once a referral is received, automatically send a confirmation letter or fax to the referrer to avoid phone calls or duplicate referrals being sent. Identify invalid referrals or missing information early in the process and prioritise referrals for triage without delay.
Giving clinicians access to important patient information when and where they need it means better patient care outcomes. Information access through any enabled mobile device eliminates contention for desktops, reliance on the paper record and allows decisions to be made when they need to be made.
This can be achieved through a mobile app that intergrates with existing departmental systems and presents clinical information in a patient centric and secure manner.
