Medical records are important not only for treatment decisions, but also for legal purposes. Attorneys require these records to prove many cases such as personal injury, medical malpractice, workers’ compensation and more. It is important for providers to maintain accuracy and efficiency in the medical charts of their patients. Law firms can take support from professional chart review companies to easily determine whether a medical chart is complete and adequate. Proper medical records organization and review helps attorneys determine the strengths and weaknesses of a case and make key decisions related to the case. All medical procedures, treatments, instructions and care must be documented as per HIPAA standards.
