A: Impairment reports are required on all industrial injuries in accordance with state guideline and labor code. Creating accurate impairment reports is confusing and time consuming for providers and staff. RateFast saves doctors valuable time and reduces letters of inquiry about impairment reports.
A: Yes. RateFast Express reports are impairment ratings created on the basis of the medical provider’s own report of signs, symptoms and physical exam findings. The rating rule set (e.g. the AMA Guides) are directly applied to the content of the report.
In areas where the AMA Guides are less defined, proprietary weight-averaged values are used to prepare the data prior to application of the values. This approach to impairment rating is historically well accepted by carriers and regulators among our clients.
