GPs + ME Dr efer
Build your referral network of Specialists, Allied Health, PHN Programs and more to ensure you always have the most up to date referral pathways at your fingertips for the benefit of your patients. Auto-populated eReferral forms - eForms - launched from within your EMR, or your web browser. Notifications of updates to your patient's cases.
The only referral directory you'll ever need
Find the best specialist service for your patient's needs by discipline, special interests, language, distance and wait time. Integrated with secure messaging networks, the NHSD and powered by FHIR.
Localised Clinical Decision Support while your refer
Our referral directory works hand in hand with HealthPathways giving you a rich picture of both the local referral pathways relevant to your patient's case and the available services in their area. Armed with this knowledge, you can reliably refer your patient's to the most appropriate specialist service.
Goodbye RTF, hello eForms. Direct from referees for you to use
MEDrefer eReferral Forms or "eForms" are cloud hosted and always up to date - no more downloading the latest RTF templates and importing them to your EMR. Our forms are defined by and linked to the listings in our referral directory, so once you've chosen the best service for your patient's needs, you'll be immediately directed to the relevant referral form for that service. It will be auto-populated from their clinical record, leaving you to provide just the additional detail you feel necessary to ensure a smooth transfer of care.
Every referral is tracked, with updates sent to your Inbox, and optional opt out
Practice staff can view an online summary of the referral prior to accepting the patient's referral and if necessary, reject - with the referring clinician automatically notified. Even after acceptance, you can inform referrers of Did Not Attends (DNAs) with a single click, so all can meet their duty of care obligations. For referrals where you dont need to be kept up to date, you can opt out of updates on a per referral basis.
You refer, we deliver. Guaranteed. Across our directory, there is a wide range of technological capabilities and preferences governing the channels by which referrals are accepted. MEDrefer has solved this dilemma for GPs with our "channel hierarchy", where we automatically route messages via the best available channel. From SMD to secure API to web browser download. As a last resort, we'll even convert your referral to fax. All you need to do is to choose a recipient, we will do the rest.
Reports delivered directly to your inbox.

Expand your professional network
Use our extensive directory to build up a robust, trusted referral network, covering all the specialties you may need to refer your patients to. Keep abreast of new Specialists practising in your area. Assign "favourites" to allow quick and reliable referrals for your patients to the best care for their needs.
Referral can now be saved as drafts for later completion. GPs can view, edit and send the referral.
Referrals saved to the Patient Record
All referrals created via MEDrefer Manager are saved into the Correspondence Out/Outbox when using a supported EMR.
Send Attachments with your referral.
With MEDrefer you can attach files with your referral, either from your EMR or uploading them when creating your referral.* Some EMRs dont support receiving attachments so in those cases we can provide the referral recipient with a link instead.
Our compact launcher application allows clinical and admin staff to access the full range of features within the MEDrefer platform from their Windows desktop with a single click. It communicates directly with popular EMRs to auto-populate referral forms with patient data and read and write referral records to correspondence in and out.
