SAN FRANCISCO – ReferralMD, a leader in referral management, patient access, and e-consult solutions for health systems, today announced that St. Joseph’s/Candler in Savannah, Georgia has selected the company’s enterprise platform to enhance communication and referral workflow across its two hospitals and 13 practice groups with future expansion of its ACO, Advocate Health Network.
The Georgia-based system will utilize ReferralMD to create a standardized process across the entire continuum and will eventually help integrate up to 18 different EHRs creating a common communication platform to bridge electronic consults and referrals.
Highly regarded as the premier health provider in the region, St. Joseph’s/Candler (SJ/C) needed help managing different patient and referral data across their primary care practices and had no system in place to benchmark referral leakage. Given the potential expansion of their Central Referral Office to assist with referral management for their ACO it was important to find a solution that would streamline the workflow and provide accurate and up to date tracking of the referral process.
“St. Joseph’s/ Candler challenge in integrating and maintaining reliable provider data and tracking real-time data are ones we hear from health systems across the country,” said Jonathan Govette CEO at ReferralMD. “We’re looking forward to helping the SJ/C team effectively track referrals for its primary care practices and ACO affiliations and help guide patients to the most appropriate high-quality doctor in their network.
