How can Referrals be tracked within a Patient Chart?

Question: How can the state of a referral order be tracked for a particular patient using that patient's Connect Care chart?

Context: Prescribers participating in referral intake and management will do most of their work through In-Basket workflows. Referring physicians can also use In-Basket for referral tracking, as that is where they receive notices about the status of the referrals they have ordered. In addition, referring physicians may wish to quickly check the the status of one or more referrals that pertain to a particular patient.

Answer: The "Chart Review" section of any opened patient chart has a tab labelled "Referrals". Opening this gives access to a list of all active referrals for the current patient. These can be selected to dig deeper, check referral progress and facilitate communications.
