The Referrals tool is a new resource in Medical Director's Sidebar. This comprehensive database provides an easy way to search through specialist medical practitioners in Australia. Integrated with Medical Director, the Referrals tool enables you to find a specialist in a particular suburb and write a referral to them.
The Referrals database helps you search for specialists by specialty and suburb. You can then see details of each specialist, such as subspecialty, practice locations, hospital affiliations, languages spoken and so on. There is also a short bio on each specialist.
All validated specialist medical practitioners in Australia are listed in the Referrals directory, free of cost. Specialists who want their listing to get a premium placement pay a fee.
The Referrals tool is already installed in Medical Director. It appears as a teal 'REFER' button on the top right corner of the Medical Director screen. Click this button to get started with the tool. View Screenshot
You can search for specialists by clicking on the 'By Specialty' tab at the top of the Referrals tool. In the text box at the top, enter the type of specialist you are looking for, e.g. Cardiologist. It has an autocomplete function that makes it easier to find the specialty you are interested in. As you begin to type, the tool will display a list of matching specialties. You can then scroll down and click on the one that you are looking for. In the second text box, enter the name of the suburb or hospital, e.g. Chatswood. This text box too has an autocomplete function. Once you have selected both the specialty and the suburb, click on the search button to see a list of specialists matching your search criteria, e.g. Cardiologists in Chatswood. View Screenshot
Yes, the search 'By Name' tab allows you to search for any specialist by their name. Simply start typing in the name of the specialist and the autocomplete function will come up with a list of names matching what you have typed in. View Screenshot
Clicking on the specialist's name in the search results opens up the specialist's details in the Referrals tool window. You will then be able to see their practice information, languages, pre-consultation forms, bio and qualifications. View Screenshots
You can email a specialist's details to a patient from the individual specialist's page. First click on the 'Email fact sheet' button on the specialist's page. The tool will take you to a page where the patient's email address can be entered. If the patient's email address is already stored in their Medical Director file it will be automatically entered in the email address input.
Once the correct email address has been entered click the 'Send' button. An email will be sent from the address email@example.com to the patient's Inbox with full details of the specialist (please note that the specialist details WILL NOT be sent from your own email address).
Once you have clicked the Send button, your patient's Progress notes will be automatically updated. View Screenshot
To add a specialist to your list of favourites, first open an individual specialist's page. Then click on the 'Favourite' button below their name. The specialist then gets saved to the list of Favourites which you can access by clicking on the 'Favourites' tab at the top of the fact sheets tool page. View Screenshot
You can remove a specialist from your Favourites list at any time by clicking the 'Favourite' button in the toolbar on an individual specialist page. View Screenshot
