Scottsdale, AZ (Vocus) June 16, 2010 -- Carefx Corporation, a leading provider of interoperable workflow solutions, announced today the availability of its new issue brief that outlines the benefits of electronic referral management – increased referral volume and revenue, enhanced clinical collaboration, simplified workflow and interoperability with health information exchange strategies.

“Electronic Referral Management: Bottom-Line Benefits and Quality Gains,” the latest in a white paper/issue brief series from Carefx, examines why and how electronic referral management systems offer an alternative to cumbersome, bureaucratic, paper-based referral processes that still stymie many medical groups, hospitals, health systems and other providers.

“Boston Medical Center’s implementation of the Carefx eReferral solution has corrected revenue losses, enhanced access to care and made clinical information more accessible to clinicians throughout our community information exchange,” said Joel Vengco, BMC’s Chief Applications Officer, who implemented eReferral in 2009. “Return on investment continues to trend toward expectations and stakeholder satisfaction remains high.”

Also featured in the” Electronic Referral Management” issue brief are insights from Barry Runyon, Research Vice President, Gartner Research; Lynne Dunbrack, Program Director, IDC Health Insights;; Jennifer Covich Bordenick, CEO, eHealth Initiative; Marc Holland, President and Managing Director, System Research Services; and David Hansen, healthcare consultant, economist, entrepreneur and author.

The release of the new issue brief coincides with Carefx’s participation in HFMA’s ANI: The Healthcare Finance Conference, June 20-23, 2010, in Las Vegas, where Carefx executives and clients, including BMC’s Joel Vengco, will demonstrate the power of eReferral. To schedule a one-on–one discussion with Mr. Vengco or another Carefx executive, contact Anne Perez at aperez(at)carefx(dot)com. Copies of the issue brief will be available at Carefx’s booth (#633) and online at www.carefx.com/referralbrief.

“Electronic Referral Management” echoes Carefx’s promise to deliver solutions that improve patient outcomes, reduce errors, prioritize higher value units, strengthen referrals and utilize nurses and other staff more consistently,” said Andrew Hurd, Chairman and CEO of Carefx. “In addressing our mission of ‘simply advancing healthcare,’ we’ve used issue briefs and white papers to blend experts’ insights with customers’ hard-won results and lessons learned.”

Other examples of Carefx thought leadership include “Health Information Exchange: From Meaningful Use to Healthcare Transformation,” a white paper that confronts the challenges of health information exchange, medication and allergy reconciliation, quality measurement, monitoring and reporting, collaboration and referral management.
