About our project



referralMD is a user-friendly platform that allows you to exchange, manage and track referral information and images online with your colleagues without using paper, fax machines, shredders, or excessive staff. By increasing referral efficiency, your practice can maximize its profits, increase patient satisfaction, and the quality of care provided.

Do other organizations need to be enrolled to be able to exchange referrals?

Just with any technology, even the FAX, both sides need to have the same technology to communicate. Every organization will have their own secure account to send and receive referrals with the ability to connect to an unlimited number of other practitioners. Easily invite or send a referral to other clinicians and they will receive an invitation for a Free Account.

Summary:

  • Exchange referrals in seconds
  • Reduce staffing time
  • Decrease patient no shows
  • Identify referral trends
  • Minimize risk and liability
  • Rank doctors by efficiency – know who to do business with
  • Eliminate lost or misplaced referrals and insurance authorizations

Clinical Proof

Improving Referral Communication Using a Referral Tool

A recent study of a home-grown solution similar to ours found that when PCPs used an electronic referral tool (ERT):

  • The chances that information would be communicated to specialists prior to the patient’s referral visit were 3x as high as when PCPs did not use the ERT.
  • When the ERT was used, intervention patients were significantly more likely to report that specialists had received pertinent information prior to their visit and significantly less likely to have received conflicting information.
    *There was also a trend towards intervention PCPs being more likely than control PCPs to receive information back from the specialists.

These three findings strongly suggest that communication between PCPs and specialists are improved when ERTs are used.

How We Help Patients

Patients are often asked to courier their referral documents to the specialist. Unfortunately, very few of these documents actually make it to the other doctor. This results in lost or late appointments, latency in care, frustration, and potential health risks due to delays in care.

How We Help Doctors:

We help doctors:

  • Communicate faster
  • Increase accountability and participation between colleagues
  • Monetize referral opportunities
  • Identify referral trends (High volume referral organizations vs. lowest)
  • Reduce the risk associated with lost or misplaced referrals with a complete referral history
  • Track staff participation with the referral process (Who sends or receives the most referrals)

How We Help Hospitals, Institutions, Insurance Companies and/ or Medical Facilities:

referralMD is a single platform for all types of users – from the individual practitioner, multi-campus healthcare organizations, to insurance companies and imaging centers. It is easy to use; its user interface has been commended!

Using referralMD can allow institutions and large service providers to make informed decisions about budgeting and partnering with other providers resulting in increased efficiency, revenue, and quality of care.

How We Will Spend Your Contributions

The initial 40k from you and our other supporters will help us bring on board one additional programmer for 4 months and will provide some much needed working capital for our launch into a private pilot test in which we already have over 100 eager organizations waiting to participate including: Concentra, MD Anderson Cancer Center, St. Joseph’s Healthcare, St. Vincent’s Hospitals, and many other individual dentists, doctors, imaging centers, and laboratories.
