5 Benefits of Outsourcing Patient Transfer Services

Outsourcing functions like patient transfer services can help providers save money and streamline operations, allowing them to focus on their most critical role: providing high-quality patient care.

One of the biggest determining factors that facilities make when requesting patient transfers is the time it takes to get physician to physician acceptance. Hospitals and hospital systems with engaged physicians who say yes, and clinicians who help facilitate fast and efficient patient transfers, are more likely to get repeated requests and see increased transfer volume. The problem? Most hospitals and hospital systems don’t have the in-house resources, operational capacity, or expertise to implement improved processes.

Organizations that partner with an experienced company such as Conduit Health Partners can see immediate benefits to their patient transfers, which in turn support long-term retention and growth.
