Until recently, a PCP referral
was simply a slip of paper. If the patient lost that paper, they had no way of following up with the specialist provider for continued care. This was a problem for primary care providers, who want nothing more than to provide their patients with the best possible service. Fortunately, technology has made it possible to create solutions for this problem.
