Referring patients

Handtherapie Groningen offers hand therapy (ergo- and physiotherapy) to all patients with hand, wrist, and elbow complaints. We provide this at one of our multiple practices, as well as at home.

You can refer your patient to us via through:

  • written referral
  • ‘ZorgDomein’ (tab: paramedische zorg | ergo- physiotherapy | hand-wrist
  • ‘ZorgMail’ (500090118)
  • fax (+3184 – 7191951)
  • verbal referral

When your patient’s need for hand therapy is caused by an illness that is on the ‘list of chronic diseases’, it is important that a digital or written referral is provided. This will allow the hand therapy sessions to be covered by the basic health insurance from the 21st treatment onwards. (The first 20 treatment sessions are insured from the additional insurance)

Patients often have questions regarding insurance coverage of treatment sessions or splints/braces. Answers to these questions can be found under the header reimbursement.

Good communication with referrers is important to us. When you refer a patient, you can expect feedback on a semi-regular basis. This can be via reports on paper, ZorgDomein, e-mail, or over the telephone.

Would you like to have forms for written referrals of Handtherapie Groningen, or would you like to consult us for anything? We are at your disposal by telephone on 0597 – 413333 or by e-mail.

We also make use of ZorgMail, and it is therefore also possible to securely exchange patient information through this medium.
