The SF 513 is actually used for outpatients who need to go out and be referred to other healthcare providers. These can be any specialty prescriber and health evaluators such as gynecologist, internist, and even ophthalmologists and etc.
What can you find in SF 513?
This is the form where you place the primary assessment and results of the examination and tests right into it.
Who is responsible for the patient during SF 513 consultation?
The responsibility of the patient remains with the referring provider until the patient is officially seen and taken care of by the specialists.
In many cases, the specialist will perform their own examination and procedure and ultimately return the patient back to his or her original provider for continued care.
The original consultation form will stay with the HREC.
