New York, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2015
Care to Care LLC is expanding its specialty benefit management services to include a proprietary, web based clinical knowledge system, called “Referral Guidance.”
Referral Guidance consists of conditions and disease algorithms that are evidence based. It provides physicians who are anticipating making a subspecialty referral an efficient means to ensure the referral is appropriate, necessary, and performed in the right clinical setting. Referral Guidance serves as a pre-referral web based clinical decision support system, to help physicians manage effectively and efficiently their value based reimbursement models and aids to ensure quality of care for their patients. This program can also integrate into a practice’s current Electronic Medical Records (EMR) software.
Designed to support clinical decisions relative to 250 of the most common diseases and conditions, spanning 15 medical and surgical specialties, “Referral Guidance” program is not meant to replace the physicians’ judgment but rather support their decision making process before making a subspecialty referral. It serves as an educational tool and provides a Pre-Referral Evaluation regarding patient management before a referral is considered. “Choosing wisely on the need for a subspecialty referral is the key,” states Dr. Julian Safir, Chief Medical Director of Care to Care LLC. “Referral Guidance” program also provides actionable data and reporting packages.
Care to Care’s new “Referral Guidance” program will improve patient care by decreasing the number of inappropriate and untimely specialty referrals, thus reducing wasted time and expense. Patients are diagnosed more quickly, unnecessary tests and office visits are avoided, and diagnosis and treatment are expedited.
“We are excited to add this program to our solutions suite, as it is a natural complement to our extensive evidence based decision support programs including Radiology Benefit Management, Radiation Oncology and Medical Oncology said Dr. Safir. "Referral Guidance” adds to our suite of best-in-class programs that bring a unique offering to Care to Care’s clients while focusing on the collegial relationships we have with the provider community and their patients.
