Attorneys require medical record summaries when dealing with medico-legal cases related to personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice/negligence, and more. Records summarization allows attorneys to extract the plaintiff’s relevant medical information. Preparing a flawless medical record summary for attorneys requires years of experience and minute attention to detail. Medical records summarization is a process that simplifies the tedious task of arranging medical records. Professional medical record review companies have a team of skilled, registered legal consultants and medical record reviewers that can ensure flawless summary preparation.
Medical summaries should reflect the treatment and care received by the patient. They should also elaborately describe the present medical condition of the plaintiff. While summarizing medical records, reviewers must ensure that the medical records are complete, correct, and convenient. They have to collect all the required medical records prior to writing summaries. It is also important that the summary includes all the health practitioners involved in the treatment of the plaintiff. In a personal injury case, the medical summary should contain the particulars of the medical practitioners who gave immediate care in the ER. Attorneys are required to do a thorough medical chart review prior to the summarization of medical records. Outsourcing the process of medical records review can save time and effort for attorneys. Experts can deliver accurate medical case summaries that provide a clear understanding of the case.
