ReferralMD is automated referral management and analytics platform that helps providers build a reliable and sustainable institutionalized specialty network. We offer care providers an affordable way to exchange, manage, and track (referrals, authorizations, and progress updates) while providing powerful analytics to track trends, leakage, and participation.
Founder’s profile: Jonathan Govette
With more than 15 years of experience, Jonathan Govette is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of referralMD, a platform for primary care and specialist providers to manage their referral sources online vs. the current paper-based system. 100,000’s of thousands of people die each year due to administrative errors and upwards of 60 percent of patients do not receive the care they need due to lost or misplaced paper referrals costing providers billions to manage each year.
Govette is responsible for leading all aspects of referralMD, including developing key relationships with healthcare organizations, online positioning, branding, product design, and team development. Prior to referralMD, Jonathan has sold innovative products and professional services in the enterprise online and print marketing / web development / software space.
