More than one-third of all patients in the U.S. are referred to a specialist each year. However, effective communication between referral senders and receivers is difficult, which can delay diagnosis, impede treatment and create gaps in follow-up care.
This white paper draws on the results of a 35-question survey of 174 healthcare providers and administrators, conducted by Phreesia in November and December 2020.
Read this white paper to learn:
- How providers decide when to refer patients and to whom
- Referral senders’ goals and the challenges they face regarding communication with referral receivers
- Opportunities for technology-based referral solutions to support all providers and eliminate these obstacles to high-quality care
