Independent Medical Examinations

 

An independent medical examinations (IME) occurs when a forensic medical expert examines an individual who has not previously been involved in a patient's care examines the patient.  An IME is requested when there are questions surrounding causation,  impairment, and/or the appropriateness of care.

 

An IME consists of a comprehensive review of the file provided, a physical examination, and generation of a written report or a verbal opinion to discuss findings. As a free ancillary service, NWME will coordinate phone conferences, addendums and subsequent deposition or court testimony when necessary.

 

NWME has extensive experience in paneling up to 4 experts for multi-specialty examinations.

Medical Records Reviews

 

A Medical Record Review (RR) is utilized to assist in evaluating cases without having a physical examination. The focus of a RR is to assess causation, impairment, and/or the appropriateness of care. Dependent on the facts of the case, RR's can be a valuable cost saving service in lieu of scheduling an independent medical examination.

Northwest Medical Experts will facilitate the RR with the appropriate forensic medical expert based on the client's directive. A RR consists of a comprehensive review of the file provided, and generation of a written report or verbal opinion to discuss findings before the report is generated. As a free ancillary service, NWME will coordinate phone conferences, addendums and subsequent deposition or court testimony when necessary.

Medical Chronologies

 

When you want to know the important facts contained in the medical records without having to decipher each and every document, the format of NWME Medical Chronologies are right on target. 

 

NWME Chronologies capture user defined data from each relevant medical record provided. The "who", "what", "when", and "where" is summarized and presented in Word format, with an accompanying PDF with instant reference and hyperlinks to the actual source document.
