This file is used to maintain a log of transmissions of inter-facility consult activities to a remote VistA system. The file will record the record and activity that triggered the transmission as well as the facility to which the transmission was directed.

Upon successful completion of a transmission with successful acknowledgement, entries will be deleted after approximately one week.
