Thanks to optimal networking we achieve the best treatment quality. In the interdisciplinary team of our specialists and in the cooperative partnership with our referring physicians. This way these are closely involved in the treatment process and can be sure to work with the best centre for the needs of their patients.
RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY AND COLLEGIALITY FORM THE BASIS FOR SUCCESSFUL COOPERATION WITH OUR REFERRING PHYSICIANS.
INDIVIDUAL MEDICINE WITH A HIGH PERSONAL COMMITMENT
Our loyal referral physicians are one of the decisive factors why the Heart Center Hirslanden has been able to reach its current size and importance in private heart medicine and will continue to do so. We appreciate this very much and always strive for collegial cooperation. Over the years, very sustainable, trusting relationships have developed, from which the patients benefit as well.
DIGITAL PATIENT DOSSIER
In addition to fostering personal and professional exchange, we also continuously optimise our administrative processes. With the introduction of digital patient documentation, we have taken a big step forward and simplified cooperation for our referring physicians. This leaves more time for the patient.
How do referral physicians and the Heart Center Hirslanden work together? What are the models for our cooperation? What are the benefits for patients and referring physicians? In the following we would like to present you our models of cooperation.
Classic referrer model
Referral of a patient from the practice of a registered specialist or general practitioner with a clearly defined order for examination or treatment. The patient is treated by the heart specialists in the Heart Center Hirslanden as part of the contract. Further treatment takes place in the practice and under the main responsibility of the referring doctor.
Portal physician system
A portal physician accredited at the Clinic Hirslanden can clarify or treat his own patients either interventionally or surgically in the catheter laboratory. The portal physician receives close support from a partner of the Heart Center Hirslanden, who also acts as a case leader and takes on further care tasks.
Accredited doctor with extended competence
Thanks to accreditation at the Clinic Hirslanden, the specialist can examine his own patients in the catheter laboratory. If necessary, he can draw on the expertise of the interdisciplinary team at the Heart Center Hirslanden.
We offer a comprehensive medical service, from outpatient consultations to conservative, interventional or surgical procedures and inpatient follow-up care at the Clinic Hirslanden Zurich. Furthermore, we are always there for you in case of emergency. You can reach one of our specialists around the clock, seven days a week.
Our team of interdisciplinary cooperating medical specialists, cardiologists and heart surgeons is concerned about the well-being of our patients:
• 10 Cardiologists, including 7 specialists in interventional cardiology and 1 specialist in rhythmology and 2 specialists in imaging techniques (echocardiography, MRI)
• 1 pacemaker specialist
• 3 cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons
DIGITAL PATIENT DOSSIER
With the introduction of digital patient files, we are making our treatment process fit for the future. This simplifies the administrative processes when working together with our referral physicians and thus enables a more intensive exchange of expertise. This allows us to treat and accompany our patients even more comprehensively.
The exchange of information takes place exclusively via secure channels as defined by the legislator (data privacy).
