An experienced medical record management and chronology company is a legal professional’s best friend. Having someone who is knowledgeable about medical terminology and how to prepare medical records for a case proves to be very useful throughout litigation. While few lawsuits go to court, medical chronologies are used during discovery, in depositions, preparing witnesses for testimony…even during a trial.
Disorganized Files Make It Hard to Find Information
When medical records are retrieved or provided by medical professionals, they’re often in a state of disarray. This makes it difficult if not impossible for attorneys to review the documents without putting them in some type of order. Considering the sheer number of items that may come in from a doctor or hospital, this is seldom an easy task. That’s where a medical record management company comes in handy.
Medical Record Management Uses Categories for Records Received
Categorizing records according to document type, provider, facility, and location helps tremendously. It makes the medical records easy to scan and review. This saves the attorneys that work with the medical record management company time and financial resources. They can concentrate their efforts on other areas of the case that need attention.
Why Chronologies are Used
Chronologies are easy to read, update, and use. They explain a patient’s medical history starting from one date and ending at another. They often include admission reports, doctor’s note, medications prescribed, emergency room visit documentation, and more. All legal professionals know how important these documents are when presenting a medical malpractice or wrongful death lawsuit.
Factoring in the Cost of Medical Record Management
Are you simply absorbing the cost or appropriately charging these services as a legitimate expense to the case file? If you aren’t, you’re likely losing a lot of money in the process. That’s why it’s so important to have an idea of exactly what you’ll be paying a medical records summary company for. Then you can factor in the cost of the service into the price you charge your clients.
