Partners in comprehensive pediatric care

Patient Referrals Toolkit

As referring providers, you're not only our partners in patient care, but instrumental members of our care team. And together we're able to provide the highest quality, most comprehensive patient care.

Because of our dedication to maintaining lasting, beneficial partnerships and supporting multidisciplinary care, we've made communication with our patients' referring providers a top priority.

To optimize the way we work and care for patients together, we've created a patient referral toolkit and implemented processes to:

  • Make it easy to refer your patient to Children's Colorado when necessary
  • Facilitate two-way communication between referring providers and our specialists
  • Keep you informed of your patients' progress and care plan every step of the way, so you can smoothly navigate their transition back to your care
  • Provide coordinated care that's easier on parents, patients and providers

Referral guidelines

We provide referring providers with support even before you make a referral.

Our referral guidelines help you provide the best possible care, choose the best approach for treatment and determine when it’s time to refer to a specialist.
