Kyruus Survey of 200 Physicians Shines Spotlight on Lack of Detailed Provider Data and Scheduling Options; Findings Indicate One-Third of Out-of-Network Referrals Avoidable
Boston, MA – Kyruus today announced findings from a survey of 100 primary care and 100 specialty physicians aimed at better understanding referral practices and uncovering opportunities to improve care coordination. The findings, published in the 2018 Referral Trends Report: Positioning for Patient Retention, highlight providers’ top challenges in making optimal, in-network referrals. While 77 percent of providers surveyed recognize the importance of keeping patients in-network for care coordination, a notable 79 percent say they refer patients out of network. Coupled with other key insights, such findings suggest that improving referral processes can go a long way in helping health systems boost patient retention.
