Record Retrieval Solutions’s Medical Records Retrieval Solution
Automated. Compliant. Cost-Efficient.
Our Medical Records Retrieval (MRR) service combines modern web-based technology with a regulations-compliant outsource solution. Historically, lawyers would have to set aside a lot of time to get necessary information for cases involving medical records. It’s not that the process is complex, since every attorney, paralegal, and litigation-support person knows exactly what needs to be done.
Retrieving medical records is actually a very labor-intensive process. Someone at the firm must acknowledge the need for the records, and the firm and patient (who may or may not be the firm’s client) must complete necessary request forms to ensure procedure compliance with a myriad of laws (including HIPAA). Then, the firm must track the progress of the request, and eventually receive, review, and organize the results or note that there were no medical records related to the matter.
To ease law firms’ workflow, IT vendors are now offering sophisticated, affordable solutions for small firms and solo practitioners. These tools include new client/business intake, workflow automation, and conflict management solutions, which aim to increase work productivity, lower operational costs, and improve billing management for MRR expenses.
