GP (Doctor) Referral

 Time and information are keywords in patient care. Many patients arrive at the Emergency Department following a referral from their GP (Doctor). The  information relating to their condition can be conveyed to the hospital by several means;

  • A letter
  • Email
  • Fax
  • Online Electronic Service
PatientManager takes this one step further. The GP has access (limited*) to PatientManager via a web browser to a dedicated referral module. From here the doctor can enter details relating to patients condition, treatment, medication, can upload images relating to the case and provide additional hand sketches.

By clicking on the blue "H" button the hospital is alerted to the referral and due arrival of the patient. Thereby, if required, the information relating to the patient can be reviewed in advance of arrival and any necessary preparations made.

The doctor can also see if the patient did attend the ED as referred and later that they have beed discharged.

* A GP's access to PatientManager would be determined by hospital management and also GDPR rules.

If you are a medical consultant working for an Emergency Trauma Hospital or know of another consultant or hospital who would like to collaborate with us (CompassAFM) on the development of PatientManager, please contact us at info@compasspatientmanager.com
We would love to hear from you.
