The easy button for referring patients to your ED.
Streamline communication and coordination between referring provider offices and the ED with secure, web-based patient referrals.
How It Works
Save everyone time
Referring provider offices fill out the secure online referral form with relevant patient information and submit it to your ED.
Your ED receives timely referral information including chief complaint, diagnostic concerns and patient ETAs in an online queue manager.
Keep providers in the loop
ED staff marks the patient disposition status which auto-generates a notification back to the referring facility.
