If you're using cases to manage a series of treatments, there's a good chance that you may need to add referral details! This will help you to keep track of which doctor sent this patient your way for these particular treatments, as well as when the referral expires.
This guide will walk you through the steps to set this up and make sure that the correct referral details are linked to each case. 👍 There are two ways to do this:
- From the appointment screen (when adding a new case), or
- From the patient page (when adding or editing a case).
☝️Note: If you're processing Medicare claims through Cliniko and you want the referral details to show up on the claim form automatically, you'll have to add the referral details to the case.
