which can be defined as informally obtaining information or advice regarding
a patient from another physician who has not directly examined the patient
or reviewed the patient's record, and does not document any recommendations.

there is on the subject. The 2 articles in this issue of THE JOURNAL, by Keating
et al1 and by Kuo et al,2
help to fill in the picture considerably.
