The company is rolling out its ReferWell platform to clinics, independent physician practices, urgent care providers, hospitals, and other health service providers on a subscription basis. Based on current clients, ReferWell's management anticipates that the platform will be managing more than five hundred thousand medical referrals per annum by the end of 2016.
"We are extremely pleased with ReferWell's product, people and processes," said Charles Boorady, managing director of HCCM. "ReferWell closes the loop on medical referrals. We have seen the improvement in patient compliance and care coordination that is effected by the ReferWell service in New York and believe that further expansion aligns with our fund's goal of driving innovations that improve clinical outcomes and value through transformation of the health care delivery system."
"The referral process is in dire need of transformation, as many of us who have been patients can attest," said Vytas Kisielius, chief executive officer of ReferWell. "We are grateful for the support and partnership HCCM provides as we pursue our goal of improving patient care by helping providers and payers better manage the referral process."
The ReferWell platform is HIPAA and HITECH compliant. All PHI (Protected Health Information) is encrypted in order to ensure patient privacy and made visible to only the specific providers who are engaged in that patient's care.
