When it comes to patient transfers, effective communication and timely care coordination are important to ensure patients receive the care they need, when and where they need it.
However, many hospitals and hospital systems lack the inhouse resources, operational capacity, and expertise to implement an optimal patient transfer process. This can result in precious time and resources spent contacting dozens of providers to find the most appropriate place for a patient’s care.
Organizations that outsource functions like patient transfer services can improve communication and care coordination, which is critical at a time when every minute counts. A trusted partner like Conduit Health Partners will customize services to support safe, timely and seamless transfers that meet the needs of patients.
Streamlined communication to support expedited admission.
Busy providers seek hospitals and hospital systems that will respond to transfer requests quickly. By working with Conduit, we can help you identify opportunities to expedite a physician’s acceptance of incoming patients through streamlined communication among physicians, clinicians, along with administrative and other clinical staff. We develop custom workflows that are specific to service line or diagnosis, and that focus on the way your facility prefers to receive the patient.
Centralized transfer communications system
Conduit offers its partners access to a centralized transfer communications system staffed 24/7 by registered nurses. Using a nurse first model, our clinicians recognize the specialized clinical needs of the patients requiring transfer services. If a referring facility calls the transfer center, we provide concierge white glove service to ensure that we find an appropriate placement for patients if we are unable to place them into your facility. We also record calls for patient safety, satisfaction and operational improvement.
