IDENTIFYING MISSING RECORDS

  • Identification of missing records is very crucial for any case analysis. There may be a key piece of evidence in the missing records.

  • Identifying missing records during the review process or in the preliminary stages is vital because their absence may foreshadow something much more serious.

  • During the review process, if we believe an important section of the patient’s record is unavailable, we will notify the same, so that appropriate action may be taken to address any gaps that we find.

  • In addition to the medical records, we will also notify regarding any other records that may be appropriate for the case that we have not yet received, such as the police report, wage loss records, and/or property damage estimates etc.

  • A list of missing medical records with associated medical providers/facilities and date of service is provided for reconciliation and retrieval requests.
