Improved Inter-facility Transfer and Procedure LOA Workflows
A new consolidated Inter-Facility Transfer (IFT) navigator appears in Connect Care starting October 13, 2020. This addresses concerns of both sending and receiving sites, improving the quality of communication and documentation.

The new navigator has embedded instructions. Additional or updated guidance appears in the Manual and in linked Tips and Demos, which should be referred to the first few times that a prescriber uses the IFT or Procedure LOA workflows:
