Medical Record Review (MRR)

The medical records review process will be handled by our team from start to finish.  We begin by cleaning and organizing the records to streamline the review process for the reviewing expert. From there, a case manager will follow the case, making sure all needs and deadlines are met.  Our clients then receive an official report in a variety of formats. If there are any further questions or additional records that our clients may need assistance with after receiving the final reports, we are always available to assist them.

Diagnostic Film Review

Our radiology experts review, interpret and submit all findings on imaging studies in a full narrative report.  Whether it be an MRI, CT Scan or conventional X-Ray, our board certified Radiologist’s will generate a comprehensive and detailed report of the submitted studies.

Radiologic Reviews may be instrumental in clarifying if a diagnosis is causally related to the incident in question.

Reviews can also assist to accurately diagnose the controversial medical conditions:

  • Herniated Disc Vs. Bulge
  • Possible Age Determination of Herniation, Fracture or Tear
  • Acute Injury Vs. Degeneration

Independent Medical Exam (IME)

Our legal coordinating team handles all of the details of IME scheduling. Our relationship with the experts allows us to facilitate a fast and easy scheduling process. We arrange IME dates, times, locations, and transportation between the parties.

Bill Audits

Bill audits are done in conjunction with all of our Chiropractic or Physical Therapy medical records review.  Our Bill Audits include a full detailed breakdown of CPT coding to assure that proper charges are connected with the treatment provided as well as reviewing for possible unbundling issues.

Bill audits are a necessity to ensure accurate charges and allow our clients to make well-informed, equitable payment decisions.

Phone Consultations

We take the stress and time out of setting up and coordinating phone meetings between our reviewing physicians and our clients, if and when necessary.  All of our doctors are happy to speak about the cases they are involved with in order to get a better understanding of the issues and complexities that are inherent. Since every case is unique in their own way, phone consults are an extremely valuable tool for the claim’s rep/attorney. 

Audio / Video Deposition (AV Depo)

Our office handles all of the necessary scheduling when an AV Deposition is needed.  Blocking off dates and times can be challenging to many, but our strong relationships with all of our experts makes this process seamless and efficient.

Expert Witness / Testimony

When all good faith negotiations break down, our physicians will be there to stand behind their reports and opinions.  ERI will coordinate directly with our doctors to secure dates and times that are acceptable with the courts schedule. Since all of our physicians have full and thriving practices, we ask that notification of trial be given well in advance.  This will allow us to be able to secure the doctor without disrupting their current practice.  Good communication provides for a successful scheduling result.  

Our Process

        • Submit an online referral with information about your case, and if needed, request recommended CVs of our experts.
        • An ERI team member will evaluate your case, and help guide you to the perfect expert.
        • Upload electronic medical records (100% HIPAA compliant). Once received, a team member will organize and prepare the chart before sending it to the appointed expert.
        • ERI will take over from there, making sure deadlines are met and all questions and concerns are addressed thoroughly. Phone consultations, IMEs, and anything else will be facilitated by the ERI staff.
        • A final signed and certified narrative report will be sent directly to you. Our turn around time is outstanding.

"ERI turns the high hurdle of securing outstanding medical experts for the entirety of the litigation process into a solid, secure endeavor. The whole team is a pleasure to work with, always available, and always excellent. Working with ERI is a great move for your client"

"Dr. R. did a phenomenal job testifying.  He took this case very seriously and was extremely well prepared.  There were 17,000 pages of medical records so this was no small feat.  He knew the case cold.  I have never seen a doc work so hard to get ready to testify.  He basically obliterated the other side’s medical claims related to spine issues, and there were a number of them.  This is the first time he had testified in a civil case.  The judge and the court staff all told me that he was a very good medical expert, and I couldn’t agree more.  A very impressive job and worth its weight in gold.  I try cases all over the place all the time – 42 years in the business.  I work with experts all the time. This was a top notch job by any standard."

"ERI provides excellent products on every referral."

           -Senior Claims Rep

“I just wanted to thank you folks and Dr. H for excellent work he did  – case went to trial this week in Boston @ Suffolk Superior and essentially we got a defense win, largely due to Dr. H’s video testimony.  Dr. H did a record review, follow up record review, and then conducted an IME on the Plaintiff.”

       -Senior Examiner

"Always personal service to select most qualified physicians having the expertise for the particular injury at issue. Dr. S. was not only extremely user-friendly but also well-prepared for trial, and he used plain language to explain very complex issues. It was very clear that the jury liked him and trusted him, and they came back with a verdict consistent with everything he said. He was my entire case, and he got me a great result."
