Our consultants have spent decades in healthcare administration, and we see the importance of every referral to your hospital or specialty practice. Building and maintaining relationships with referral sources is key to the long-term financial success of every healthcare organization. We continue to see health systems acquiring private physician practices for this sole purpose. Hospitals are relying on their employed physicians to keep referrals in-house and prevent leakage.
With the advent of hospital-based medicine, physicians aren’t seeing each other in the halls or even in the doctor’s lounge anymore. So building those relationships and tracking those referral patterns can be next to impossible. But AdvisorsMD has the answer.
For your healthcare organization to remain profitable and patient-focused, you must invest time and energy toward growing your referrals. After all, most patients see a specialist because their primary care physician has referred them, not because the patient requested that particular specialist.
AdvisorsMD consultants work directly with your staff to identify how your facility currently tracks new patient referrals. When necessary, we implement new business processes to make sure you are capturing accurate referral data. Then we help you analyze that data to determine which referral sources should be sending you more patients. And most importantly, we analyze your market area to identify the providers who are NOT referring patients to your physicians. Equipped with this information, we give you a concrete plan to increase provider referrals. And you can track your success with the MDreferralPRO online solution.
