ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Holon Solutions, one of healthcare's most advanced knowledge delivery companies, and ReferralPoint, healthcare's leading data-driven referral management solution, today announced an arrangement to embed complementary solutions from each other's product portfolios, enhancing the physician network intelligence and referral capabilities they offer to the market. Holon will integrate ReferralPoint's referral selection, tracking and engagement solutions into its CollaborNet® Referrals product. ReferralPoint will offer Holon's patented CollaborNet® Insights "ribbon" as part of its suite of offerings.
Holon's Referrals solution facilitates electronic collaboration across health communities by drawing in relevant data from a provider's electronic health record (EHR) to initiate a patient referral and automatically populating documentation and coordinating communication channels along the continuum of care.
With the addition of ReferralPoint's capabilities, providers are prompted to select the most appropriate specialist for a patient based on multiple criteria including network and health plan affiliations, provider outcomes data, physical location to home or work, cost, and more. Once a referral is completed, automated messaging – such as text or email – is triggered to close the referral loop between patients and specialists. Additional functionality enables organizations to measure each step from referral order to closed loop with analytics that identify leakage trends, cost savings, quality improvements, and more.
By delivering this level of specialty provider intelligence, referring providers have the information needed to make the best possible referral, increasing patient satisfaction, reducing network leakage, and better managing costs.
ReferralPoint's solution helps organizations control network leakage, cost, and quality without restricting the ability to deliver high quality care. The addition of Holon's Insights capabilities, which will be white labeled as the EHRibbon™, ensures providers get real-time alerts indicating patient needs, such as gaps in care, that may warrant a referral.
The patented, sensor-based interoperability technology from Holon detects when a provider logs into their EHR system and opens a patient chart, then automatically retrieves relevant information about the patient in real time and presents it to the provider in ReferralPoint's EHRibbon. The provider then uses the pre-populated ribbon to initiate a targeted referral request. The integration between Holon and ReferralPoint provides a better informed, seamless workflow to achieve better clinical and financial outcomes with less work.
