The IME Business Is What We Know Best

We are OPEN and ready to serve our clients, present and future!  Read our COVID-19 update here.

Put Our Expertise to Work for You

Being a member of the claims community yourself, you already know that forensic medical reports are part of a highly specialized field of work.  At IMT, we know that too.  Independent medical examinations, record reviews, addendum reports, peer reviews, and multi­specialty panel exams are part of our day-to-day vocabulary.  Our team has decades of combined experience, and we know these documents inside and out.  If you can't say the same about your current trans­cription provider, here are some reasons why you should consider making a change:

  • We are the sole transcription and formatting source for multiple panel companies, and we also transcribe IMEs directly for numerous forensic psychiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, chiropractors, and other specialists.
  • Our MTs have training and experience to back up their work, being skilled at medical, legal, and insurance terminology, and they know how to handle the lengthy, complicated dictations that make up an IME.
  • We fully understand the importance and value of these reports, that their contents impact the lives of every­day people, and that they must be of the highest possible caliber to stand up in a court of law.
  • We have both the staff and the know-how to take on either your occasional overflow dictation or your entire trans­cription workload, and our veteran US-based team will be available when you need them.

 

Why Reports from IMT Are Better:

Dates are written out to ensure accuracy.

Abbreviations are expanded for improved clarity.

Reviewer's comments are made to stand out from surrounding text.

Reports are carefully formatted for maximum readability and ease of locating information.

Records are organized chronologically, even if you didn't have time to dictate them that way.

Dictate as much or as little as you'd like at one time, and review and edit your report in progress at any point.

Possible discrepancies or oversights and any questions from the MT will be clearly flagged so you can examine and resolve them before sending out your report.

Information from available cover letter(s) will be incorporated into the report, including reviewer questions buried in the text that may have been overlooked.

Reports will always be completed according to your preferences, maintaining the highest level of profes­sionalism, promptness, and completeness.

QA Staff Makes All the Difference

  • Most transcription companies hand-check only a small random sampling of their reports, just to identify any major issues their MTs may be having.
  • At IMT, every report is processed by our quality assurance team to ensure that even minor problems don't begin to creep into your important documents.
  • Our thorough review process adds value, allowing us to identify errors and carefully screen each report we transcribe for completeness, clarity, and quality.

What About TAT?

If you're researching transcription services, you've probably noticed most of them bragging about their 24-hour turn­around time (TAT) on every report, which is perfect for daily office notes and general correspondence.  From experience, however, we know that when it comes to lengthy IME dictations, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for TAT.  Rather, turn­around can better be determined based on the specific needs of a particular report.  Maintaining some flexibility with turn­around times allows us to:

  • … prioritize reports according to due date and anticipated length so that you get the highest-caliber documents when you need them.
  • … take advantage of the quality and consistency benefits of a single MT working on your report from start to finish.
  • … perform rush jobs and weekend work at no additional charge.

In the end, if your transcription service has promised a 24-hour turn­around on your 100-page IME, you'd better check it carefully, because they probably didn't!

Having VR Issues?

The claimant did well following his baloney below-knee amputation …

Surgeries include a sing-a-long single lung transplant …

He had a pleasant day influenza A last year …

Voice recognition errors are no laughing matter in a courtroom.  You've probably seen them before, but how embarrassing would it be if such a mistake turned up in one of your forensic examinations?

At IMT, our transcriptionists are live human beings who are committed to quality, attentive to even minor details, and genuinely enthusiastic for the work we do.  Left in our hands, your IME documents can bolster both your credibility and your professional image.  Left to chance or to the whims of a computer program, however, the effect may be quite the opposite!

    Brief Bio:  I enjoy medical transcription because each medical record for each patient is like learning a different story.  It definitely keeps my job interesting and adds a lot of variety to my work.  With five children and lots of pets, transcription has been the ideal job for keeping us close together as a family.  In our spare time, we love to do volunteer work, camp, hike, and play with the “baby” of the family—our sweet Maltipoo Blake.

    “IMT really impresses me as a company because of the meticulous requirements for grammar, formatting, and deadlines.  It really shows a dedication to the field.”
