The purpose of the UTF is to ensure that accurate communication of pertinent clinical patient care information is conveyed at the time of a transfer between healthcare facilities or programs. The UTF conveys patient information that a physician or nurse need to appropriately begin caring for a patient when the patient arrives at a new facility. This includes codes status.
