EpxReferral is a multi-purpose appointment check up and referral suite. It can help patient schedule health appointments that they need by connecting them to the provider offices via phone call, send appointment reminders, and gather attendance status afterwards.
- Patients who are recently discharged and have the needs to follow up with downstream primary care providers.
- Patients with needs for eye exams, mammogram, or other wellness exams.
- Patients with any general appointment reminder needs.
There are 3 stages of the intervention
- Inquiry: used for eye exams, mammograms, or other wellness exams to determine whether the patient has had such appointment in certain previous timeframe.
- Scheduling: if the appointment/visit is not set, patient will be prompted to connect with the list of providers you set to get an appointment.
- Reminder: when an appointment is set, the intervention will send out reminders as well as follow up afterwards for the attendance status.
