German term or phrase: Karussell pflegen
"Entlastende Zusammenarbeit:
Augenärzte und Internisten pflegen ein Karussell aufwendiger Hin- und Her-Überweisungen, um den Anforderungen von DR-Erkennung, Progressions-vermeidung und wirksamer Therapie gerecht zu werden."


Any ideas for an attention-catching 'marketing' wording for it?

Thanks a lot in advance!
