UAB Physician Services seeks to improve communication between the UAB Health System and referring physicians, while also providing support that will enhance continuity of care. Physician Services assists physicians by facilitating the referral process, communicating timely and pertinent information regarding a patent’s visit to UAB, and providing up-to-date information regarding the vast programs and services available within the UAB Health System.
Our physician liaisons travel throughout Alabama, and into areas of Georgia, Mississippi, and the Florida Panhandle visiting referring physicians and their office staff. As licensed, registered nurses, the liaisons are able to discuss clinical issues with these physicians and assist in their referral process. The liaisons’ goal is to maintain an open line of communication between the referring community and the health system, providing referring physicians with the most up-to-date information on research, technologies, physicians, and services at UAB.
In 2007, UAB Ambassador was developed to allow referring physicians the ability to follow their patients’ care throughout the UAB Health System. The secure, Web-based tool allows physicians access to electronic medical records for both inpatient and outpatient visits including consultation notes, labs, procedure reports, and discharge summaries. With the goal of enhancing continuity of care, UAB Ambassador improves communication between the UAB Medicine and referring physician by removing barriers to timely access of complete patient records.
