T-Scan HD™ Program for Medical Record Retrieval
Our T-Scan HD™ Program delivers solutions to record retrieval problems shared by personal injury attorney firms, insurance defense firms and carrier/claims organizations.
Medical record retrieval is expensive. The national average to collect a 100-page medical record is $94.33. How much time does it take legal or claims staff to collect and organize each record? Will hiring a record retrieval partner reduce the hard costs of cases or claims? How much does commodity pricing of service impact retrieval partner performance?
Medical Record Retrieval is time consuming. According to reputable industry surveys, the average claims professional spends over 200 hours per year dealing with medical records. How much time does a busy litigation professional spend collecting them? Are your talents best used collecting and organizing records?
Medical Record Retrieval involves the handling of sensitive personal information. Are you or your vendor partner’s security technology aligned with industry best practices? What’s your exposure for mishandling information?
T-Scan HD™ Drastically Reduces the “Hard Cost” of Record Retrieval
T-Scan HD™ routinely reduces records acquisition costs by over 75% and reduces vendor total cost by over 33% when compared to competitors.
T-Scan Record Retrieval developed our T-Scan HD™ Program geared to fulfill one central purpose: provide a retrieval experience that reduces records retrieval spend regardless of client size, stature, geographic location, or industry position.
T-Scan’s HITECH Medical Record Retrieval™ process was created in 2015. We set out to ensure our dedicated expert retrieval service could procure medical records at the lowest possible cost to the client while not impacting expert retrieval service.
HITECH Medical Record Retrieval™ is a process built on expertise and technology. Only T-Scan has the experts and data to successfully deliver these cost saving results to parties related to claim or a case.
Avoid the Massive Record Invoice
There is nothing more despised in the industry than the massive records invoice that upsets a client or blows up a claim/case budget. The T-Scan HD™ Program significantly reduces this possibly.
Some states (such as FL, TX, WA, NJ, MN, etc.) have jurisdiction rates that too frequently result in record invoices of $1000 - $2000 or more. Our HITECH Medical Record Retrieval™ process frequently slashes these large expenses by 99% or more.
Optimize Operation Performance
Keep Clients Happy through Expense Reduction
Regardless of their company size, all our clients want lower bills – and T-Scan HD™ delivers.
T-Scan’s quarterly HITECH Savings Report demonstrates these savings. This report is sorted by jurisdiction and compares the cost of record acquisition through the HITECH Medical Record Retrieval Process vs. Jurisdictional Rate Schedules.
Not only will customers save money, but proof of these results can be delivered.
Talent is both critical and scarce. As claim and litigation professionals, your job is to deliver a favorable financial outcome to the client or your employer as reliably and as quickly as possible.
Not only will T-Scan HD™ reduce how much money and time is consumed by this process, but as your partner we will enable you to do your job faster by delivering the information quickly and reliably, allowing your time to be allocated to more difficult or knowledge intensive tasks.
Increase or “Right Size” Capacity
Most litigation and claims professionals feel overworked with not enough time to invest in their most important responsibilities. Additionally, the average personal injury claim/case requires record retrieval from 9 separate healthcare facilities.
If you have just ten concurrent cases, that is ninety separate medical records requests to actively monitor and follow-up with, to ensure records are retrieved prior to mandated deadlines. On top of this, records need to be organized and stored upon receipt.
T-Scan Record Retrieval delivers records quickly and accurately, storing the information in a secure repository. As a result, you will have significantly more time (up to 20+ per case) to perform more important tasks or take on a higher caseload.
Optimize Financial Performance
Improve Cash Flow
Removing the burdensome tasks of record retrieval from any organization will immediately improve cash flow. Rather than paying direct record costs and salaries upfront, T-Scan HD™ shifts these expenses to when the records are obtained and allows them to be easily itemized to the case file.
Additionally, storing records physically and/or electronically increase square footage requirements and/or information technology footprints.
T-Scan HD™ delivers an online repository that acts as the storage and organization facility for records and provides and accommodates many standard retention parameters.
The most effective claim and litigation organization are required to adapt quickly to large challenges. Although often producing successful outcomes, too frequently these adaptations leave long term financial burdens such as taking on additional office space, staff, and technology hardware or applications.
T-Scan HD™ mitigates these burdens by giving your staff the horsepower they need to temporarily or permanently take on a large volume of cases or claim files.
More Billable Hours
Many firms are not allowed to bill – or find it difficult to justify billing – clients for simple administrative task such as sending faxes or making a phone call to a record custodian. In reality, record retrieval tasks are time consuming and can be distracting for the individuals performing the retrieval.
T-Scan HD™ allows the focus to remain on activities that deliver the most value to the client.
