Referrals in healthcare include sending a patient (by one healthcare specialist) to another healthcare specialist who is more knowledgeable and experienced about the underlying condition of the patient. A referral may help a patient in attaining proper care service, diagnosis, and treatment.
A referral is essential in the case of health maintenance organizations (HMOs) for visiting any practitioner or specialist other than a primary care physician (PCP). Patients may require a referral letter containing all his/her previous health details for ensuring a smooth transition of care.
