SAN FRANCISCO (12/22/2017) – ReferralMD is proud to announce a partnership with Neighborcare Health of Seattle.
With ReferralMD’s enterprise referral management and e-consult platform, Neighborcare Health will now centralize all referral communication and reduce the dependency on spreadsheets and faxes with the goal to close the feedback loop with external receiving providers.
Previously, Neighborcare’s staff would manually fax outbound referrals to community specialty providers and rarely receive any updates to the status of their patients. For Neighborcare Health to properly participate in the future care of their patients, they needed to be kept in the loop and be notified in real-time of the status of their patients. ReferralMD accomplishes this goal.
About Neighborcare Health
Born out of a group of community health centers established in Seattle in the late 1960s, Neighborcare Health is the ultimate community success story.
Our first clinics were an integral part of the changes in health care delivery sweeping the country, reflecting their founders’ remarkable vision, courage, and boldness in creating something unprecedented. They were volunteer-based and existed on shoestring budgets. Operating in converted apartment units, fire stations and even converted taverns, staff in the early days were incredibly innovative in figuring out ways to deliver health care.
Today, Neighborcare Health operates 28 medical, dental and school-based health clinics and is the largest provider of primary health care to low-income and uninsured families and individuals in Seattle. Nationwide, there are now more than 1100 community health centers that provide essential primary health care to more than 15 million Americans.
ReferralMD delivers proven referral management, patient access, and e-consult solutions that help hospitals, health systems, networks and payers streamline the referral process, decrease patient leakage and improve communication between providers and patients. The enterprise platform matches patients with the most appropriate, high-quality providers and closes the feedback loop between providers and patients.
The solution’s powerful workflow and clinical decision support tools help healthcare providers increase revenue, drive operational efficiencies and improve customer service.
