Independent Medical Examinations

Independent Medical Examinations (IME) provides a comprehensive evaluation and report to include the history, medical record review, and physical examination of an individual’s injury or illness. They help to determine the causation, diagnosis, and extent of medical treatment for the injury/illness. These examinations can establish whether a person has reached maximum benefit from treatment if treatment is related, any recommended treatment plan and medication utilization. They can also help clarify working capability and whether any permanent impairment or disability remains or is anticipated as a result of the injury/illness.

Medical Record Review

A comprehensive review and report on the medical records of an individual by a qualified medical specialist to determine the status of a person’s injury/illness. This can assist in determining necessary treatments, the effectiveness of current treatment, or help address potential disability that may be part of the injury/illness.

Peer Review

A Peer Review provides a detailed report of an individual’s medical records. This is done by a qualified physician of the same medical specialty as the treating physician. Peer reviews provide an analysis of medical treatment guidelines and continuity of care within the parameters of physicians of the same educational and medical expertise.

Second Opinion Surgical Evaluation

Evaluations performed when there is a question if surgery is the best option for an injured party or if more conservative treatment should be rendered before surgical intervention is performed.

Disability Evaluation

An evaluation performed by a physician to determine the percentage of disability/impairment based on the allowed conditions in a claim. These ratings are in most cases determined according to the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment (6th Edition) or whichever standard is being utilized by State Regulation.

Burn Examinations and Solutions

Proper evaluation and management, and early referral to a specialist can greatly help minimize suffering and optimize results for burn patients. Outcomes for burn patients have dramatically improved over the past several years, with the goals of treatment to control pain, remove dead tissue, prevent infection, reduce scarring risk, and regain function. The goal of reconstructive surgery is to improve both function and cosmetic appearance by altering scar tissue with non-operative and operative treatments. As with other medical evaluations, burn examinations can also determine whether previous treatment has been proper and effective. An Independent Medical Examiner can review all the medical records provided by the treating physician, conduct exams and tests to substantiate or counter the original findings, review results of current or previous treatments, recommend future treatment needs, and provide their opinion on the need for any future medical benefits.
