Why Should I refer my patients to you? Don’t I have the potential to lose a patient to a specialist?

HeartSavers™ encourages physicians to refer patients to our heart detection clinics for a number of reasons.

First, we specialize in early heart disease detection. We know the latest research, studies, and technologies that provide a cost effective, evidence-based medicine approach to heart disease detection. We truly are the heart disease detection experts, and with heart disease being the largest cause of death and largest cost to the healthcare system, it is in the patients best interest and the healthcare systems best interest for your patient to get screened.

Second, you are still in control of your patient, and in most cases you are in control of their individualized care plan that we provide and recommend for them. We can be a valuable partner for you and your patients, and we seek to enhance and broaden the relationship you have with your patient.

Only in a very few instances will we recommend a patient to see a specialist or cardiologist. While this would be inevitable anyway if the patient did not go through our screenings, it is still in the patients best interest to be treated accordingly. Also, in most cases the patient is referred to a specialist within the same provider system, so in a sense you are not losing a patient, you are just sending the patient to a different area of your organization.
