Total Commitment to Referring Clinicians
At Eating Recovery Center we are fully committed to forging collaborative partnerships with our referring professionals, and we recognize the invaluable contribution providers bring to the admission, treatment and discharge process.
Even before your patient admits to Eating Recovery Center, our Clinical Assessment team
will work with you during a rigorous pre-admission assessment phase to collect extensive information and insight to help our senior clinical team make an informed treatment recommendation, and establish preferred methods of communication to keep you engaged in the treatment process. Within the first 72 hours of your patient admitting into one of our levels of care
, their primary clinician will contact you to provide status updates and discuss your involvement throughout the treatment process.
Referring professionals collaborating with Eating Recovery Center
Referring professionals are invited to participate in staffings with Eating Recovery Center’s treatment team and your patient throughout the course of treatment. While these meetings seek to inform you about your patient’s recovery progress and offer you an opportunity to share clinical wisdom, they are also designed to orient you to Eating Recovery Center’s treatment philosophy, model and interventions. Referring provider involvement allows for a seamless transition to outpatient care following discharge from treatment.
Designated ERC staff begin the creation of an Aftercare Plan at the time of admission, communicate with referring providers regarding the date of discharge, make appointments and ensure comprehensive understanding of the treatment the patient has received and the proposed post-discharge plan. Patients are referred back to their existing outpatient team, or provided referrals if they do not enter treatment with an existing team.
When referrals are needed for discharging patients, ERC staff utilize the National Referral Network Directory, which is extensive database of trusted providers with familiarity of Eating Recovery Center’s eating disorders treatment approach.
