Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Ease the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Pain for Attorneys

Whether litigating a medical malpractice, personal injury, products liability, toxic tort, workers’ comp or criminal case, all attorneys experience a similar pain – difficulty in comprehending the electronic medical record (EMR). Most attorneys tell me that the EMR stumps them every time.

Electronic medical records are challenging enough for healthcare providers. Imagine how perplexing they are to the attorney who’s probably never even accessed an EMR system. This is where Certified Legal Nurse Consultants come to the rescue. You save the day by educating attorneys regarding all of the subtleties of the EMR. You also uncover hidden facts in the EMR that no one else on the litigation team will find.

If you have experience with EMRs or consider yourself an expert, highlight that fact in your unique selling position (USP) and use it in all of your marketing strategies. If you’re an EMR specialist you can subcontract with other Certified Legal Nurse Consultants who are less experienced with, and maybe even themselves stumped by the EMR.

Almost every case you consult on involves EMRs, so it pays to emphasize how you can break down the electronic medical record into something that’s not just decipherable, but also builds the attorney’s case.

Success Is Yours!

P.S. Comment and share how you translate your legal nurse consulting experience with EMRs into your USP for attorneys.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree, Vickie. My first case this year (malpractice) involved an EMR system for which I am very skilled. I found information and issues of concern that no one had identified. I not only saved my attorney client from hiring a very expensive vascular surgeon, I also contributed to the decision to settle out of court with my deposition that was subpoenaed by the defense during discovery.
