Rethinking Referrals: Insights from Providers

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
