Direct Connect

Direct Connect functions like email and provides a secure, HIPAA-compliant way to share patient information in the referral process.

With Direct Connect, you can conveniently make referrals to MU Health Care and know with certainty we have received your referral and made an appointment for the patient.

Direct Connect provides you, the referring provider, with several benefits. With Direct Connect, you can:

  • communicate quickly, efficiently and privately with MU Health Care 
  • have an alternative to coordinating care through faxes, papers and phone calls, potentially reducing your operational costs
  • reduce lost documents and wait times throughout the referral process
