Access to ophthalmologists has never been as easy
Finding the right Ophthalmologist has been a challenge for Optometrists.
Most ophthalmologists work at multiple clinics and hospitals. Many works beyond their known specialty, regularly acquire new tools and techniques, have long waiting lists, or perform different services at different locations.
Further, multiple referral and report forms are used by doctors and clinics, information on forms vary, and doctors have different expectations as to what to receive from optometrists.
Once the optometrist finds the right provider and fills up the right form, he is faced with the challenge of getting it through, safe, clear, and hopefully into the right hands and on time. Shall it be sent by fax? by email? Given by hand? by mail?
That process is tedious for optometrists, time consuming, unclear, and often puts the patient at risk of delays and mismatching issues. It also causes frustration for Ophthalmologists who often receive wrong and incomplete referrals.
At Retinahub, we have resolved referral issues. Today, hundreds of Optometrists are using our Referral Management System and their experience has never been as simple. Over 25,000 referrals have been delivered into Ophthalmology clinics and hospitals through out Quebec.
