Patient Referral for Health Professionals



UTMB Health is committed to investing in our relationships with community physicians to provide quality care for patients. We have use an important tool called "UTMB CareLink" that offers you a new level of access to timely information about your patients.

UTMB CareLink, a web-based application, gives you, as a referring physician, a safe and secure way to access your patient’s information contained within UTMB Health’s electronic medical record system (EMR). From lab and radiology results to care notes and discharge summaries, UTMB CareLink puts your patient’s information at your fingertips. As a referring physician, you will be able to access information for only those patients with whom you have a specific relationship. This ensures compliance with local, state and federal regulations for the release of Personal Health Information (PHI).
