How Does ERC Help the Hospital?
The referral originates with the Physician to furnish the Supplier with “Exactly as the doctor ordered” information. The Physician can allow DME Suppliers to receive orders and create ERC referrals for electronic signing and approval without having to pull patient charts.
It provides a secured point of origination for the physician to expedite the referral from their hospital.
The program keeps you updated and automatically makes any necessary changes to current information and/or forms.
Discharge planners can select to use ERC Referrals from their hand-held devices or allow DME suppliers to enter in the order as received and speed the discharge process significantly.
Physicians appreciate having this convenience while at the hospital. The quality of the hospital’s care for its patients is greatly increased.
Built-in zip code searches for the suppliers in the patient’s home area make the referral process easy.
The referral transfers to the Physician’s office for any follow-up, and if any more documentation is need for finalization of the referral, it can be completed without the hospital’s staff having to check and re-check the status of the referrals.
