Cardiac clinical services are typically busy, have varied and complex workflows and are held to a high standard for access, quality and patient safety. The Novari Cardiac Services Referral Management software module was designed around these needs and uses tested Novari technology to improve both efficiency and quality.
Novari Cardiac Services Referral Management can integrate with hospital electronic health record (EHR) solutions to include Cerner, Meditech, EPIC, Allscripts and others. Novari Health has extensive experience in integrating to a variety of 3rd party digital health solutions.
Referring physicians are usually unaware of the status of their referrals when using paper and fax. The Novari Cardiac Services Referral Management software module displays the status of each referral as it moves through the system. This helps to avoid wasted time playing telephone or fax tag trying to get real-time updates on patient referrals.
Transitioning your referring physicians away from traditional fax referrals requires a multi-pronged approach within a model that recognizes the importance of successful change management. Novari’s approach is one which allows, in the early phase, referring physicians to refer to the hospital or central intake by sending an eFax from their EMR. In addition, and preferably, referrals may be electronically initiated through the use of a web portal and/or through the referring physicians’ electronic medical record systems (EMR).
The use of a standardized cardiac services electronic referral form ensures the person making the referral provides the appropriate clinical and administrative information to the program.
Simplify your referral workflows by removing paper and fax from your cardiac program’s referral process, from receipt to scheduling, and every administrative and clinical step in between.
The module can leverage 3rd party clinical appropriateness and decision support guidelines to improve the quality and appropriateness of referrals.
