ReferWell and Khora Health Solutions Partner to Bring Better Care Coordination to Federally Qualified Health Centers
Health Tech Companies Offer Expanded Access to Care
STAMFORD, Conn., June 22, 2021 — ReferWell, a fast-growing health technology company driving efficient care transitions through the last mile, today announced a partnership with Khora Health Solutions, an organization focused on creating access to specialty care for underserved patient populations.
Together, the two companies will offer federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) access to a vast network of specialists who accept referrals for both in-person and telehealth appointments, shortening the time it takes to receive care. Included are referrals and appointments scheduled with Khora providers in difficult-to-access specialties such as gastroenterology, dermatology, rheumatology, infectious disease and chronic disease management.
“FQHCs struggle with timely access to specialty care in key areas,” said ReferWell CEO Vytas Kisielius. “Khora’s network of physicians helps them direct patients to the right specialist quickly. Through this partnership, health center physicians will find specialty care for their patients, book appointments about 30% sooner and get patients to those appointments more than 60% more often.”
Using the Specialty Care Access Network (SCAN) solution, providers can book appointments at the point-of-care, double patient follow-through with care and close the loop resulting in better care coordination. Additionally, with access to better data gathering, FQHCs that participate in the 340B Program will be able to capture more savings in a compliant way.
“FQHCs often don’t know whether patients have completed their specialty referral visits and have no simple way to share clinical notes with specialists, “said Khora Co-Founder and Head of Strategy, Todd Weber. “As the experts at driving efficient care transitions, ReferWell is bringing better care coordination and the streamlining of referral workflows to these health centers.”
