Appointment Requests/Electronic Referrals
Electronic Referrals is available to practices of community clinical faculty physicians with admitting privileges at Children's Hospital.

The Patient Roster is available to community clinical faculty physicians with admitting privileges at Children's Hospital. Patients seen in the Emergency Department, admitted as inpatients and discharged appear on the roster of the physician designated as the primary care physician. Email notifications are sent to the physician when there are changes/additions to their roster. Practice views are also available.
The physician list is an internal and external physicians' directory populated from the Synergy database.
