The Simple Medical Chronology is one of our most sought after products for attorneys representing users of the ChartSquad platform. It offers a comprehensive list of medical providers, dates of services, and a summary of all treatment, procedures and diagnoses rendered to the patient for each treatment date. It also includes interactive hyperlinks for easy navigation and is available in both Word and PDF format.
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 chronology work was often outsourced to those without the proper expertise and, subsequently, the quality became very poor. This 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 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 chronology was considered a luxury; sadly, this remains the case for the most part.
Our partner supplying this unquestionably important service has sought to change the way chronologies are used. For those working on behalf of clients who need medical chronologies in order to be granted justice and win their cases, we want to endeavor to make life simpler; the person ultimately benefitting from a thorough review is the client. Our partners team has been trained and honed over the past 5 years to produce a quality product at a price point lower than any other available at this level of detail and accuracy. It is a case cost so low that a firm wouldn't even feel bad about writing off if they have to. Our med-chron partner omits the "noise" in medical records. They spot and summarize medical data that is the most important in evaluating cases.
