It also includes interactive hyperlinks for easy navigation and is available in both Word and PDF formats.

Uses for Chronology

Attorneys use these chronologies when representing a client to accurately determine their medical history, including pre-existing conditions and injuries related to the date of the incident. They also assist in evaluating the value of the client's case, this is essential for preparing discovery responses and for use in depositions or by experts.  

History of Chronologies

The history of medical chronologies is a bit sour. Historically, in order to reduce costs, medical record chronology work was often outsourced to those without the proper expertise and, subsequently, the quality became very poor. These directly impacted people working with attorneys to get justice for injuries they had suffered through no fault of their own. Dates of services would be skipped or missed. Data important to the case would not be summarized. The result? Lawyers stopped using those services. If you wanted a medical record chronology drafted in the United States, the cost would be at least $1.50 per page for a quality summary, far above what is considered reasonable. These costs were passed directly to the plaintiffs. To have a medical record chronology was considered a luxury; sadly, this remains the case for the most part.

What is a Medical Record Chronology?

A medical record chronology is a written timeline of events related to medical treatments, diagnoses, and other vital information that may be pertinent to the case or trial in question. Medical chronologies are compiled by medical professionals or forensic experts and may include medical records, reports from witnesses or other parties involved in the case, as well as any additional evidence that helps to document each party's version of events.

How is a Medical Chronology Used?

A medical chronology can be used by attorneys, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to illustrate the relevant events in a medical case. It serves as a critical tool for understanding the course of treatment, documenting diagnoses and treatments, identifying potential causes of injury or death, and uncovering relevant evidence for a case. Medical chronologies are also useful for tracking differences between parties in the case, establishing credibility, and putting evidence into context.

What Kind of Information is Included in a Medical Chronology?

Medical chronologies often include information such as doctor's notes, hospital records, and other clinical data, along with dates and timelines of all relevant medical events. This includes diagnoses, treatments, test results, medications given, allergies reported, and any comments made by the patient or attending healthcare provider. In addition to this type of information, a medical chronology can also include records from pharmacy visits, specialist appointments, and emergency room visits.

Benefits of a Medical Chronology for Court Cases and Medical Records.

The main benefit of a medical chronology is that it provides an organized and condensed timeline of events so that litigation teams can make meaning out of complex medical information. This helps the attorneys involved in a medical case to focus their efforts on reviewing key facts and make a stronger argument. Additionally, medical chronologies help to protect the legal rights of both patients and healthcare providers by providing comprehensive records for any potential court cases.

The Process of Creating a Medical Chronology.

Creating a medical chronology is a comprehensive but necessary process. It involves systematically gathering relevant medical records and organizing them in chronological order. To ensure accuracy, the timeline must be constructed from patient medical records as well as any other documentation related to the patient’s healthcare journey. Once all the information has been collected, it is then categorized into related events, illnesses, and procedures for easy review and analysis.
