Print Referring Provider Contact Information (including Phone Number) on Referral
Sometimes when we send a referral, the medical office we are referring to does not call the patient. We advise the patient to call the office to set up the appointment. When we print the referral to give to the patient, we would like to have the contact info for the doctor somewhere on the page.

This also applies to referral for radiology services with radiology partners. When I send an order to a participating radiology practice the patient still needs to call them to schedule; Just in case the radiology practice can't find the electronic order I do print out the order and give it to the patient BUT there is nothing on the order request that tells them what number to call to schedule - so I need to write it out manually on the paper order sheet each time.

providing the "referred to specialist" information to the patient reduced duplicate work and is a also makes the patient share in the decision making.
