Patient Referral Services for Physicians
Whenever possible we work with overseas doctors and hospitals to organize a system for efficient and effective management of patient referrals.
The key elements of our systematic approach are:
- Pre-travel medical reviews to ensure appropriate referral decisions are made
- Better preparation and exchange of medical records to avoid duplication in diagnostic testing
- Advance coordination of specialty appointments and post-surgical care to minimize hospital stays in Boston
- Sharing of patient discharge plans with referring physicians upon completion of treatment in Boston to ensure effective follow-up care
The benefits of our systematic approach are:
- Improved patient satisfaction
- Better continuity of care
- More efficient use of medical resources
- Lower costs
Referring physicians take comfort knowing that their patients are fully supported in Boston and that they will be kept informed of clinical progress until the patient is discharged to their care.
Referrals may be made using our Patient Referral Form.
