Re-send Referral Option

I would like to see a "Resend" option added to referrals. It is too time consuming to recreate a referral and send it again.

    show the reason it failed on the page of sent referrals - and yes a resend button

    For one reason or another at the receiving end sometimes a faxed referral fails. Can you have a feature added so we can simply resend the failed faxed document? Currently we have to create the referral all over again. Thank you

    Yes this would save time!!!!!! AND would reduce the amount of times a Referral shows up in the "Referrals" list.

    The resend fax option needs to be added as soon as possible, such a pain to have to print out and fax a failed referral!

    This would be a time saver!
    Please look into adding this as a feature.

    I would like to know why my referrals are still in the pending for days but reports say they were sent

  • Dr Marc Tanenbaum commented  · 

    I am very surprised that this suggestion has not gotten massive approval. Resend would be greatly appreciated. Since we get notification when the referral did not go through, why not just a simple button to resend? Plus I like the idea of a delayed send feature to after midnight to avoid busy signals. This could be made a default able to be overridden if necessary for patient care. And ditto for all the send-able components.

    Is there a setting to allow fax referrals to be sent between midnight and 6 am? We have so many coming back undelivered due to busy signal.

    I'd like to see this for all of the send-able components: e-prescriptions, imaging and lab orders. If something fails, I shouldn't have to start over from the beginning in order to send it again.
