SCI Solutions' platform is helping these hospitals and health systems coordinate and facilitate important steps necessary for patients to get access to the care they need quickly, such as lab work and imaging tests. With SCI's technologies, hospitals and referring physicians electronically manage the end-to-end process for care coordination, including electronic transfer of medical referrals and orders, automated insurance authorizations and online patient appointment scheduling. This technology opens the door for hospitals to implement an IT structure that extends past the four walls of the building, to more easily transition patients across different care settings while strengthening its provider network across a community – resulting in the kind of patient-centric experience and excellent quality of care that consumers expect.
