NEW MEDICAL "DECISION POINTS" INCREASE P.I. CASE SETTLEMENT VALUE, PREVENT IME CUTOFFS AND COMMAND ATTORNEY REFERRALS!
Today, personal injury settlement values are routinely devalued by up to 80% and IME doctors deny or cut bills unless you know and use the secret, coveted DECISION POINTS to prevent it! Those chiropractors who include the DECISION POINTS in their SOAP notes prevent unfair settlements, stop IME cutoffs and command attorney referrals.
When unfair, unrealistic, low-ball settlements and IME devaluations occur, they are based on MEDICAL DECISION POINTS that determine settlement & service value. These medical Decision Points are what the insurance companies use to base their DECISIONS about how to value injuries and services. Each medical DECISION POINT is assigned its own dollar ($) value based on each insurers' rate & formula. However, the insurance companies have kept you in the dark about Decision Points - UNTIL NOW!
43 "DECISION POINTS" DETERMINE P.I. CLAIM VALUE AND COMMAND ATTORNEY REFERRALS
In personal injury claims, there are 43 Decision Points that must be documented to get fair value for the injuries and your fees. 30 of these Decision Points are medical and the remaining 13 are administrative, economic and legal. So, the doctor is responsible for the large majority of the Decision Points that result in being reimbursed and determine the value of the case. The chiropractors who know and document the medical Decision Points in their files increase the value of the case, prevent IME cutoffs and find attorneys are much more eager to refer their clients.
In today's hostile environment, with tremendous competition for P.I. patients and insurance company tactics to overcome, the Chiropractor must create "uniqueness", either of brand or of services that others just don't have. Those who learn and incorporate the following "Quality Standards" (QS) of medical evaluation are commanding attorney respect and referrals. It does however require that the treating physician utilize the following Quality Standards "QS" methods of assessing injuries. We have developed a computerized SOAP note system that enables the chiropractor to incorporate the following key "Quality Standards" on each P.I. patient in all 30 areas of medical Decision Points, in less than 2 minutes per office visit.
QUALITY STANDARDS (QS):
* 5th and 6th Edition AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment
* Abbreviated Injury Scale
* Diagnostic Based Injuries (DBI's)
* Diagnostic Related Estimates (DRE's)
* Injury Model
* Specific Disorders of the Spine
* Spine Impairment Summary
DON'T SHORTCUT YOUR VALUE OR YOUR SERVICES
We wouldn't inform you of this new personal injury
Business Processing Improvement Culture (BPIC), if we didn't have a simple method for you to change the way you assess injuries according to the Quality Standards listed above. Incorporating DECISION POINTS is the only way to get a fair value for the P.I. case and prevent IME cutoffs. Incorporating Decision Points will re-invent your P.I. practice and attorneys will seek you out over the competition because you will now be able to solve their litigation obstacles while increasing case value and getting your fees paid. Incorporating these "Quality Standards" in your assessment will revitalize any P.I. practice, rejuvenate staff, fulfill practice purpose and command increased attorney referrals.
WINNING THE "GREAT WEIGHT" CHALLENGES
Simply stated, in personal injury cases, the doctor and the attorney need to eliminate varying medical opinions, especially IME opinions. Evaluators often disagree about the injury types, degree of impairment, when injuries are difficult to see with the naked eye, when speeds are low and do not produce property damage or when there have been prior accidents and pre-existing conditions. There is one court approved method to determine evidentiary burdens of proof and that is referred to as the "Great Weight". Basically, it is the fiduciary responsibility of the chiropractic physician to establish the preponderance of evidence and prove injuries meet thresholds. This process wins the Greater Weight of the evidence challenges. The chiropractor who is able to do this is going to receive a much higher percentage of referrals among area attorneys as it overcomes the common litigation obstacles.
ONE DAY TRAINING TURNS P.I. BUSINESS AROUND 180 DEGREES
If you've heard the phrases "Get with the program" and "Stick with the plan", you'll agree why we say it's time for a new way to do P.I. business - a new plan, a new program. We have created the plan and program so you don't have to. In short, we will introduce a way for you to get paid what you deserve, prevent lowball settlements and become the desired "go to" chiropractor in your area - in a one day personal injury training session. You will walk away with a uniqueness of your brand that others will not be able to duplicate and you will gain overall respect among attorneys and command a larger share of referrals.

After having fully reviewed this new PI SOAP note software program, Dr. Immerman stated: "If the doctors whose files I have reviewed had used this SOAP note program, their treatment never would have been contested, rather it would have been paid for and the case never would have gone to litigation and my expert services never would have been needed. Using this program will improve your notes to the point where they will be bulletproof. You owe it to yourself to attend this one day seminar and see the newest breakthrough in PI documentation."
