Referring Provider Advisory Board

To be accessible and to facilitate optimal communication between referring providers and our medical staff, Connecticut Children’s partners with the referring community through the Referring Providers Advisory Board. The Board meets quarterly to discuss service issues and establish ways to overcome known obstacles, so that patients get the very best care possible.

On an ongoing basis, the Board has three areas of focus:

  • Identify key issues affecting both the community-based provider decision to refer to Connecticut Children's Medical Center and the internal referrals among Connecticut Children’s departments
  • Identify organization-wide referral standards including access, callbacks, care communication, and coordination of ancillary testing
  • Identify and develop referring provider service standards
