Open Referrals Validation


your patients are safe


cohorts at risk of clinical  harm


which patients require a  further activity 


the current status of  all patients 


unexpected waiting times  breaches

Lost Referrals present risk to the Trust as they could result in:      

  • Clinical harm occurring if the patient does not receive the treatment required      

  • Patient complaints if their care is compromised  or delayed      

  • Waiting times breaches, for example, 52-week ‘pop-ons’


As such, it is essential that Trusts have visibility of the true status of all Open Referrals.

Source Groups Open Referrals validation solution will provide you with an accurate Open Referrals position, highlighting and escalating patients at risk and closing down referrals where appropriate. Extensive reporting will be provided to the Trust categorising the patients by clinical risk, defining their status, informing the Trust of the actions undertaken, and escalating the pathways that require Trust action.

Assurance that your patients are in the safest hands 

 Guaranteed outcomes within budget and to deadline

 Immediate impact, sustained improvements
