WOMBA will utilize Veradigm’s eChart Courier to provide medical chart records to attorneys in an automated, secure and HIPAA compliant manner, pursuant to authorization from patients who are clients. This solution streamlines a time consuming and resource intensive process for attorneys, their clients and, healthcare providers.
Legal actions such as mass tort, class action, product liability, asbestos, medical device, and environmental disaster claims often require attorneys to retrieve thousands of medical records from multiple jurisdictions. The high-volume nature of this work requires law firms to allocate significant resources to either retain full-time staff to retrieve medical records or to outsource the function to service providers who manually retrieve the records over several weeks. These records must then be organized for review by attorneys and retained medical experts.
Veradigm eChart Courier, alongside WOMBA’s decades of experience in the industry improves efficiency and streamlines this process by delivering the clinical data needed for these legal actions electronically. The service not only benefits law firms but also healthcare providers who are regularly inconvenienced by record retrievers hired to manually pull the needed data from medical charts.
“Working with Veradigm to leverage their eChart Courier solution aligns with our vision of providing a seamless secure exchange of medical records using advanced technology,” according to
This agreement is a milestone for Veradigm as it continues to grow outside of healthcare, now into the legal sector. “This is an example of how Veradigm is leading the way to deliver positive change in the healthcare ecosystem and beyond by increasing efficiency, thereby simplifying healthcare,” said
