What is the Referring Physician Portal?
PrognoCIS Referring Provider Portal facilitates better communication of the Referring doctor with the clinic in regards with their patients, from the comfort and privacy of their home or office, 24×7.
Features and Benefits of PrognoCIS EHR Referring Physician Portal:
- Once the patient’s encounter is closed from PrognoCIS EMR and a Referring Provider is associated with the patient., an email is sent to the Referring Provider’s email ID.
- You can check the patient’s prescriptions and request a refill.
- Access complete medical history forms along with clinic shared documents.
- Access the consolidated health summary of the referred patient
The Referring Physician Portal simply connects the Referring Provider, Referred Patients, and their Provider/Medical Specialists. It essentially allows a referring doctor to refer their existing patient to a medical specialist for another diagnosis or treatment plan.
This occurs when the referring provider does not possess the expertise in the said field or believes that a different doctor would diagnose the patient better. They can refer the patient to a different clinic or doctor for additional assistance.
The portal also supports multiple browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Google Chrome, while being compatible with iPads, Android phones, and Windows machines.
How does it work?
An example of a referring provider directing a patient to a different doctor is a Clinical Psychologist who may refer a patient to a psychiatrist for further treatment and medication. For instance, recommending pharmacotherapy along with the existing psychotherapy for long-term management of patient’s illness.
With PrognoCIS, the process of this redirection and recommendation becomes seamless. The presence of uninterrupted and secure communication paired with scheduling appointments on the patient’s behalf makes the PrognoCIS referring provider portal one of the best. A referring physician is someone whose task entails directing the patient to a secondary medical source for further examination or better treatment.
The process is quite simple. First, the referring physician registers themselves to the Referring Provider Portal database by entering their details. These details are entered by accessing the referring Doctor Master in the Settings menu on PrognoCIS EMR.
The details such as the email address and cell phone number are stored for:
- Enabling auto-generation of passwords
- Send login credentials
- Receiving One Time Passwords (OTP) for two-factor authentication
