One of the most difficult tasks legal professionals face when working on malpractice, product liability, personal injury, workers compensation, or other medical-related legal cases is collecting, organizing and analyzing their clients' personal medical records, which can be time-consuming and frustrating, a new litigation support whitepaper published by MediConnect Global, Inc. says. (http://www.mediconnect.net)

But, there are so many things to remember and sequences to go through that one little mistake can delay record retrieval significantly and delay litigation in important cases. This whitepaper provides litigation support with the most critical and strategic steps to obtaining medical records--and ultimately saving them time and costs.

    According to Strategies and Best Practices in Medical Record Retrieval, co-written by Thomas A. Schultz, a partner at Lopez, Hodes, Restaino, Milman & Skikos of Newport Beach, Calif., law firms must obtain medical records and use them more than they ever have in the past for litigation support.

"(Medical records) must be mined for meaningful data and organized for effective analysis and presentation. Doing a good job often takes considerable effort, but is absolutely necessary to building a strong case," from the whitepaper.

The whitepaper, which is immediately available for litigation support at http://www.mediconnect.net, outlines 14 strategic ways law firms can improve the medical record retrieval process making it easier to build and win profitable cases.

"Initially it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to obtain medical records for clients," said Schultz. "But, there are so many things to remember and sequences to go through that one little mistake can delay record retrieval significantly and delay litigation in important cases. This whitepaper provides litigation support with the most critical and strategic steps to obtaining medical records--and ultimately saving them time and costs."

The 14 best practices cover everything from obtaining HIPAA approved authorizations from clients as early as possible, to tying retrieved medical records to in-house case management software systems.

"By making a few changes, law firms can reduce costs, better leverage their staff, and take on larger and more complex cases without additional infrastructure," according to the whitepaper."
