Can we figure out how to eliminate need for re- referral to our specialists for care that obviously need annual examinations such as ortho ref for monitoring scoliosis, ophthalmologist for retinal exam etc? These kinds of follow up appointments can be made at the time of patient’s visit? Perhaps in these situations specialists can bill in packages of say 3 year period to reflect continuity of care?.
