Organizing Medical Records: The Basics

Organizing medical records is time-consuming and can direct an attorney’s focus away from other aspects of his/her law practice, so many delegate the task to a legal assistant or Legal Nurse Consultant (LNC). Others want to organize their own records; they prefer a hands-on approach and feel they understand the case better when they personally review each document.
