Referral process overview

Referring your non-valvular AFib (NVAF)  patients to an implanting physician is an easy 3-step process: educate, document and send.

Step 1:

Educate your patients about the risks and benefits of the WATCHMAN device and give them more information about the procedure using our patient education video and other resources. Provide the implanting physician's contact information and encourage your patient to follow up with next steps.

Step 2:

Using a referral form or electronic medical record (EMR) — depending on the implanting physician’s preferred method — document your consultation so the implanting physician has access to all referral information.
