What is coordinated access?
- A single point of contact for all patients
- Simple and more timely access to information regarding the status of a referral for providers and patients
- A central contact point for information regarding system availability and locations for specific types of education and treatment interventions
- Appropriate triaging of referrals
What has changed?
- All existing referral forms to our diabetes education programs have been replaced by one Health Care Provider referral form and one Self-Referral form.
- Coordinated Access provides 2 faxed confirmations: First, when the referral is received, and Second with the location, date and time of the first booked appointment.
