The process of Medical Record Organization includes digitizing and sorting the records into classifications (i.e. Doctor’s Progress Notes, Labs, Radiology) and then placing them into chronological order under each classification. The records will then be bookmarked for quick reference and bate stamped (page numbered) in preparation for a Fact Chronology. In cases with high volumes of records, this is an essential service to save money on costly expert review. Click here for a sample of organized medical records.
The Fact Chronology is a comprehensive analysis performed by a Registered Nurse. The nurse will identify which portions of the records are pertinent to the case and the records are then entered into Lexis-Nexis CaseMap Software. For more information on our fact chronologies, click here.
