Teaming up with the right medical professionals will enable you to obtain steady referrals. These referral sources will help ensure a steady stream of clients coming into your agency.
How do you get these medical professionals to refer clients to your agency? Here are some general steps:
Make a list
Compile a list of medical professionals, organizations, and groups.
They can be senior centers, senior programs, hospitals, and other organizations working with geriatric clients.
Once you have compiled a list, it is time to do outreach. Let them know that your agency is providing quality hospice care to clients who need it. Give a brief yet clear picture of what your agency is about and what you can do to help their patients.
Make sure that it is a mutually beneficial relationship. Think about what problems they have that you may be able to solve.
Don’t expect an immediate referral. It requires time, patience, and persistence. You need to build a relationship first. Stay connected, update them, communicate with them regularly.
