Listen now (20:47):
In this episode, Dr. Mike Kroetsch, the Medical Director, and Jennifer Salt, the Director, share their insights into Home Care using a real case as an example and address the questions they hear most often from physicians, such as:
- When and how best to refer
- What happens after the referral is sent to service – and how fast
- How physicians are notified
Jennifer also shares details about the new notification that they are going to start sending to providers when their patients enter the program instead of relying on Netcare.
“There are some challenges with Netcare,” she says. “It’s not always the most up-to-date and its passive – there’s no notifications. So, we’ve listened to doctors, and we’ve worked to develop a notification plan to keep providers in the loop.”
