FAQ's from Clinics

Pronto referrers prefer working with Pronto clinics. If you wish to receive referrals from a new referrer, contact them directly and let them know you are a Pronto member. There are some referral sources that are ONLY available by being on the Pronto Network. In some cases, you can join a new referral source that is already on Pronto to expand your clinics reach.
When you receive a referral, if you are using an integrated patient management system your system will prompt you if it thinks the referral is a patient already in your clinic. If the patient does already exist the booking is made against your existing patient record.
More referrers are joining the Pronto network all the time. Chances are your referrers are already in the process of joining up. Just in case they're not a member yet, let them know you are a member of Pronto and the benefits it brings. You can also contact the Blue Zinc TM3 and TM2 teams to make sure we are on the case.
Pronto referrers prefer working with Pronto clinics however the number of referrals you receive will be up to the relationship between yourself and the referrer. Pronto has no influence over which clinics receive referrals. However, Pronto makes sure the process is as easy and efficient as possible.
