Health Catalyst Capital


ReferWell is an enabler of value-based care, geared to meet the needs of hospitals, health systems, IPAs, ACOs, PCMHs and many more. It was founded by practicing physicians who were frustrated seeing patients return to the Emergency Room because of a manual and inefficient referral process. To solve the problem, the company created a systematic process helps healthcare networks increase referral capture, enhance coordination of care, and improve profitability. ReferWell creates interoperability to share patient health information across providers without EMR integration and to streamline and improve the referral and scheduling process.
