Referral templates

Referral templates

We recommend practices follow the below procedures to experience a seamless outcome and avoid corrupting files. Please make sure that you don’t open any referral templates. Rather, you need to import them directly into the clinical software, otherwise the files may be corrupted. Word and PDF files cannot be imported into medical software.

The templates provided by us are for your personal use only and must not be redistributed without permission. They have been tested with Version of Best Practice and Version MD3.16 of Medical Director.
