Chart Review

The primary benefit of this comprehensive, pre-IME record review is to determine the medical-legal issues in question. Frequently, the claimants file can be complex and lengthy, so organizing the documents ahead of time will maximize the time and expertise of the reviewing physician. The results of this review will often determine the most appropriate specialist for the review and the necessity of ancillary testing.

Types of Reviews

Independent Medical Reviews

An independent Medical Review is a process where expert independent medical professionals are selected to review specific medical decisions made by the insurance company or employer regarding claims determinations. These reviews determine treatment guidelines regarding:

  • Medical necessity
  • Experimental/Investigational
  • Administrative/Plan Language
  • Facility or Out-Patient Length of Stay

Types of Independent Medical Reviews

  • External Reviews (Level 3)
  • Internal Reviews (Level 1 and 2)

Peer Reviews

A Medical Peer Review is a process whereby providers evaluate the quality of work performed by their colleagues, in order to determine compliance with accepted health care standards. This review is generally a retrospective consideration by a medical professional of equal standard.

Utilization Reviews

A Utilization Review is a type of review performed to determine the necessary, appropriate, and efficient allocation of health care resources and services given or proposed to be given to a patient. Review may be conducted concurrently or retrospectively. This process uses objective clinical criteria to ensure that the services are medically necessary and provided at the appropriate level of care.

Workers’ Compensation – Utilization and Peer Reviews
