Referring Patients to Seattle Children’s

Algorithms for Referring Providers

Seattle Children’s created the following algorithms to help PCPs manage their patients and know when is the right time to refer them to a specialist.  

If you have questions about the algorithms, email Physician Relations or call our Provider-to-Provider Line at 207-987-7777.

To be notified when new algorithms are added, please subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter, Provider News.
