Using the data exchange, providers can log onto a central site and establish connectivity with the 200-plus physician offices (representing 140 specialties) who have signed up for the referral service. Referring physicians search by specialty for the office they want to send their patient to. They then click through to the office, where they find a list of all the referral documents required. They can append those files electronically, either as Word files, scanned documents, or directly from their EHR. The system also provides verification of receipt and notice of follow-up after the visit is completed.
