Let’s Talk About The Value of Electronic Referrals and Scheduling Automation
Maintaining continuity of care is an integral part of every provider’s treatment process, especially within the behavioral healthcare community. Quite often, clients’ needs require the services of a variety of dispirit providers, ranging from mental health and substance abuse clinics to hospitals and medical outpatient facilities.
One possible gap in a client’s treatment can occur when he/she is referred to an additional care provider. If not executed properly, the referral process may compromise the quality of care. Delayed or missing information and even missed appointments could occur and have detrimental affects on client’s well being and outcomes. In order to avoid this possible lapse in treatment, the attending care providers must ensure the timely and secure transfer of documentation, as well as efficient and convenient appointment scheduling.
