Question: How can a prescriber complete an outgoing (external) referral order (and letter) without medical office support staff assistance?
Context: Physicians working in contexts that have medical office assistant support can place outgoing referral orders (ie., to non-Connect Care specialists) and trust that the support staff will take care of tweaks to the referral letter when ensuring that it routes (fax or mail) appropriately. There are other contexts (e.g., placing an outpatient referral order from within an inpatient context) where such support is not available. And some physicians simply prefer to do things themselves!
Answer: A short (7 min) demonstration walks through all of the steps that a prescriber can independently complete and control when ordering an outgoing referral.
