Medical Terminology Legal Professionals Need to Know

A firm understanding of the medicolegal process and what is hiding in your client's records will make your practice more efficient.

Many of the common medical issues facing legal professionals will be addressed. What does the 'OS' and 'OD' mean in my client's eye records? What does 'Q 4 hours' mean? How can I prove the family physician received the patient's radiology studies? What records are afforded extra privacy protections? These questions and more will be addressed in this material. Make your practice more efficient and learn more about your client's case. A firm understanding of the medicolegal process will help you decipher the medical issues and provide you with more information from the patients' records than you knew were present.
