Medical Record Analysis

It’s best to learn the strength of your client’s medical records BEFORE they have completed active care. Our team will review your client’s current treating records to determine if your client’s injury severities have been properly documented and communicated, correctly coded, mechanisms of injury provided, concussion recognition performed, pre-existing conditions addressed, GAP’s in care, quality of life survey’s, prognosis development, valid treatment plans, re-exams/surveillance exams, Maximum Medical Improvement attainment, impairments, future medical costs, summary reports and amending medical records have all been properly derived and implemented. These crucial points will help you create irrefutable evidence of medical necessity for the treatments your client has received when you enter negotiations with insurers.

When we have reviewed these crucial points, we can also deliver a roadmap for the treating providers to use in amending the errors discovered in their records and to add those services which may have been missed that would validate the severity of injuries your client received.

Medical Validation: How does it work?

Personal Injury healthcare physicians’ notes often contain challenging documentation quality and content that attorneys and insurance companies find difficult to incorporate into the settlement process, leading to difficulties in resolving the claim to everyone’s satisfaction. Insurers, patients and plaintiff attorneys know that trained, licensed health care physicians offer valuable care, yet at times the care documentation and coding may not be recognizable, disallowing the fair and reasonable settlement of claims.

The validation of medical services, documentation and coding assists insurers and plaintiff attorneys in coming to a more accurate measurement of each claims value and facilitating a more satisfactory settlement of insurance claims. PI Medical Fortress validation doctors offer the solution to these difficult situations by giving you access to their specialty training in reviewing existing medical findings. The systematic, in-depth review of the records offers a solid foundation regarding the influence that injuries have had on claimants and provides assurance that the most accurate medical story is being told as according to the documented content.
