The contract physician is required to make physician-to-physician contact calls with private and client physicians regarding referral of patients and to make telephone arrangements with appropriate physicians at tertiary care medical centers to arrange for referral of patients to other medical centers.

The contract physician will be required to enter all notes, request diagnostic tests, consultative requests, order medications and resulting reports into the computerized patient record system (CPRS) on the day of the visit. In the event of computer system failure, the physician must maintain sufficient written or typed information to allow for entry in CPRS at a later time. Documentation is expected to meet medical center policies/Clinical Practice Guideline and Joint Commission/HCFA standards for documentation and subsequent coding. The physician needs a strong working knowledge of computers/skills to access the computerized patient record system (CPRS) utilized by the client. CPRS orientation will be provided to the new provider, but this training cannot compensate for limited exposure to computers and poor data entry skills.
