Electronic Medical Records Increase Patient Referrals in Small Practices

Share Article

Most people become doctors because they want to help people live healthier lives. They start their own practice, begin seeing patients and worry about developing a strong client base. Helping people comes easy to them. However, building a business, differentiating themselves from other practices in the area and developing a consistent flow of referrals is often a hard job.

2K Electronic Medical Records, located in Redondo Beach, California says many small practices see an increase in patient referrals after implementing Electronic Medical Records.

Most people become doctors because they want to help people live healthier lives. They start their own practice, begin seeing patients and worry about developing a strong client base. Helping people comes easy to them. However, building a business, differentiating themselves from other practices in the area and developing a consistent flow of referrals is often a hard job.

“Every physician knows how important referrals are for their practice to grow. They somehow need to brand themselves as different from their competition,” explains Tammy Harrison, owner of 2K Electronic Medical Records. “Putting systems in place to create a better, safer patient experience will do just that.”

According to Harrison, there are many inexpensive, customizable software packages specifically made for small practices. After implementing practice management systems many practices have seen an immediate improvement in referrals. Practices report receiving referrals from pharmacists, other patients, and even other doctors in the community.

Dr. Carolyn Vogler with Dermott Family Practice in Arkansas says, “All the pharmacists around here love me. The pharmacies don’t have to decipher anything. I get referrals from them all the time.”

Harrison’s company specializes in helping medical practices put these systems in place. “There are many alternatives for the smaller practice that are not cost-prohibitive,” Harrison tells us. “The key is finding the right package for your individual needs.”
