I would find it useful to be able to export to excel a report with GP referrers which also lists the Practice they are from. Currently I can get the GP, name of patient referred, amount and number of referrals, but then for our reporting purposes I need to add the individual Practice name next to each GP name to give us a full idea of which Practices are referring in general .

If you do a Patient Referrals report and choose Professional (& non-professional if you don't tick the box on each patient's file), it lists the Practice Name as well if you have put it in the referrer's details.

Thanks for that.  We must have the referral side of Frontdesk set up differently to yourself.  On the Notes page under referrer 1, we put GP and then list the actual GP's detail  on the Additional and under Referred by on Billings page. This has resulted in giving us a list of patients that were referred by their doctor but not who the doctor is.  If I tick 'Professional' it gives me nothing and if I tick "Unprofessional" it again gives me a list of patient names under the referrer 'GP'.  I am assuming that you enter each referrer's name individually on the Notes page in order for this to appear?

This is also a problem for us.  We use the Ref. Dr. section in the Billings Tab for our GP referrals, as this links with Medicare Easyclaim.  The Patient Referrals report does not give anything other than the referrers name & the patient details.  Why doesn't it pick up the Organisation, address etc?

This also happens when creating letters.  There are no letter tags for the details of referrers entered in the Billings tab.  :(

Yes we have to enter the referrer details twice (or three times if billing to workers comp etc).  If you don't add them in the Notes tab as well you will struggle to get a report that picks up the organisation as well.  I'm not sure why it's not also picked up from the GP Referrer details.

^^ We are in the same position as Hand Works ^^  As we have noted in two threads elsewhere, we would find it helpful to enhance the GP/Medial Referrer dataset in various ways.  Any such an enhancement could take this request into account, which would be great.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled GP referrer report with clinic/organisation.



Currently I can get the GP, name of patient referred, amount and number of referrals, but then for our reporting purposes I need to manually add the individual Practice name next to each GP name to give us a full idea of which Practices are referring in general. It would be great if this report can be run by the GP referrers linked under the billings tab. We use this to enter in both Workcover & Medicare clients billing details, as we need to process Medicare rebates via this tab. The additional tab we use exclusively for Workcover clients who we can process claims electronically via the HICAPS machine. If we were required to enter GP details under both Billing & Additional tabs this would be double handling and time consuming. More details including totals referrals and clinic/organisation on the one report is what is needed on this report which would be beneficial to our business when looking at demographics and developing our Business/ Strategic plans.

Hi Rochelle. I have merged your post with a similar idea. We will continue to monitor interest in this idea.

Would love to be able to generate a report on referring doctors.  This will help with marketing our services and correcting any misunderstandings about what we do/don't provide.  eg.  we accept Medicare EPC's but do not bulk bill therefore the clients will have an out of pocket expense related to our services.

OH yes please!!!!! We are literally just trying to pull a report with this exact info right now.

Thank goodness for the forum, it has saved us a call to Smartsoft today :)
