Many medical organizations face challenges with assessing their patients before an appointment and preparing the documents they require in advance. These challenges can take many forms and attempting to attend to all of them at once can be hectic and overwhelming. Patients might need referrals to various specialists, and the paperwork can easily wind up misplaced or unsent.
A digital solution helps to contribute to the submission of patients' referrals before an appointment. It also minimizes the time spent managing referral communications and reminds administration to ensure that referrals are sent where required.
Simply Cast's Patient Self-Referral use case uses digital forms, powerful automation, and efficient communication applications to simplify the creation and management of patient self-referral processes.
Using The Patient Self-Referral Solution
SimplyCast anticipated the need for a digital solution that can make it easier to assess patients before they book an appointment. This solution consists of three main parts. These steps are broken down below.
Step 1- Digital Form
Digital forms can be integrated with an organization’s existing website and their preferred self-assessment process. These forms can then allow potential patients to submit them, filling out any necessary assessment or referral criteria.
Step 2- Automatic Sorting
After a patient submits the self-referral form, the information they submitted can be used to sort them automatically to the appropriate location or expert. The sorting system allows patients to be referred to multiple applicable experts.
Step 3- Follow-Up Messages
In response to a referral being submitted, an appropriate staff member at the appropriate location can be notified with the information the patient provided. The new referral can also be sent back information automatically, or in response to a review task being marked as complete as needed.
