Health Connect can be utilized to enhance communication and information exchange among providers and facilities, resulting in better coordination of care and increased patient satisfaction. Physicians and administrators can view a patient’s journey through the system thus reducing the need for duplicate testing and procedures.
Physicians and service providers on the receiving end can see the referral details and clinical results such as diagnosis, prior tests attached to the referral etc. and accept the referral, or contact the patient if there is a need for change. Once the patient attends the scheduled appointment, the receiving physician’s staff is able to close the clinical loop. This ensures continuity of care for the attributed patient population.
