Our vision is to be the industry leader in this arena having direct access to physicians, clinics or hospitals to speedily secure the required information.

Our medical record retrieval service is efficiently designed to retrieve accurate medical information with the widest possible reach to get cases trial-ready faster.
Medical Record Retrieval is a tedious and time-consuming task requiring a team of experts to understand the kind of information contained, requested, and discovered from medical records. Neural IT’s on-demand retrieval has a well-trained team working on requesting the identified documents with an extensive network of medical providers ensuring a quick and secure retrieval process. As we provide services like Demand Letter drafting, medical record reviews, we are very well aware of how crucial healthcare records are for business associates such as law firms. The attorneys always require valid and relevant healthcare documentation for their legal cases and claims. Medical Records Retrieval is a very time-consuming and patience-testing process. Attorneys, their paralegals, and team members have to spend their valued time just following up for the records. The medical facilities/providers are less responsive or demanding when it comes to fulfilling the requests, especially when it is a third-party request. That’s where we can benefit them by providing efficient medical record retrieval solutions by freeing up their time so that they’re able to focus on core competencies. Outsourcing retrieval tasks will not only improve your work process but also provide better turnaround, which can save your business money over time, ultimately help you and your team pull in more volume of work from your customers. We have developed an automated, technologically-driven powerful, and reliable portal that makes outsourcing seamless.

1. Authorization Template:
In some instances, medical facilities have their template of Authorization. We at Neural IT are very prompt in understanding these requirements before we place a request. The medical facility-specific authorizations are prepared, well-formatted and then these requests are placed. This again saves a lot of time and fastens the medical request process.
Some medical facilities have a standard fee for requesting medical records, and they expect the customers to pay the fee before along with the authorization. We at Neural IT have developed a database of such facilities, so we are well aware. While requesting medical records from these facilities, we always make an effort to send them their pre-payment check so the process isn't delayed unnecessarily. In many cases, we call up the facility and ask if they require a prepayment and then process the request.
3. Mailing Requests:
Some medical facilities have a hard and fast rule of accepting requests and payment via mail only. Neural IT has made a special provision where we can mail the requirements using USPS. These USPS posts are then tracked regularly using the USPS Numbers and followed up. There is no additional cost incurred for these mail requests.
4. Specific Requirements:
Attorneys at times require some specific type of record, date-wise or medical provider-wise. We at Neural IT make it a point to check the received medical records to validate that the requirement is fulfilled. If not, we follow up with the medical facility till we get a satisfactory response or the requirement is fulfilled.
