Along with the business need of well-organized medical records and issues, you're expected to present professional reports and generally have everything at your fingertips to immediately respond to questions.

 
"MasterFile offers case analysis tools similar, but superior, to CaseMap."

    Advanced Medical Case Analysis and Issue Management for Legal Nurse Consultants

    Whether your cases involve medical malpractice, personal injury, elder and dependent adult abuse, sexual assault, Medicare or billing fraud, third-party liability and virtually any kind of errant medical billing, an attorney's initial request is usually for a medical record review including root-cause analysis. For adverse medical events, the LNC needs to explore the facts, interview physicians and other medical staff to try and determine  what exactly happened,  and why, and how to prevent any such future recurrence a role that may also include suggestions that could assist the affected parties.

    A unique medical document repository

    MasterFile's unique repository lets you organize all your evidence and instantly put your finger on anything by author, date, document type, or issue, etc. in a couple of clicks. Since medical evidence is of mixed type and often arrives in random order, MasterFile's "document centric" design stores documents in native, image and PDF formats. So whether you need to organize medical records, doctors' orders, lab results, etc., or images such as x-rays, and ultra sound, it's all a snap. File folders become a thing of the past.

    Starting out with MasterFile when a case file comes through the door lets you quickly isolate key facts and issues. Categorization of specific, detailed case information is simpler and quicker than any other approach -- especially notes and tables in Word documents or Excel spreadsheets. Once you've begun to set out the facts in MasterFile, the case begins to take shape itself. Important or specific information can be provided to counsel almost instantly. For example, identifying which frequency specific conditions were assessed, dosage intervals, or how events were reported can be simply isolated, or browsed to, since MasterFile's dynamic issue views pre-sort facts and documents.

    Medical case chronologies made easy


    In MasterFile chronologies help make sure everything that should be done is being noted. Without a chronology, events can slip through the cracks and the attorney needs all the relevant facts to best argue the case. MasterFile can also generate presentation timelines of all or selected chronological facts and events in once click with its Send to TimeMap integration.

    Timelines are a fact of life in every medical case and the frustration of trying to write them in spreadsheets or word-processors is finally a thing of the past. Creating chronologies in MasterFile as simple as assigning dates to event facts -- each of which is linked to the research material where the event was found.

    MasterFile's chronology views show you all events by issue in chronological order. View the entire case timeline, or a selective timeline with just the events related to a specific player or issue such as the results of series of critical lab tests or medications prescribed.

    TimeMap® integration lets you create compelling graphic timeline charts in one click.
