So who are DMR Collation and what do we do?

DMR Collation Ltd was established in 2010 by Caroline Packer, a former Personal Injury Practitioner and Team Manager, to provide a legal support service to both Personal Injury and Medical Negligence solicitors.

We offer a bespoke service which is catered to your own specific requirements. This includes a collation and, if required, an analysis service for medical records.

Our collation service includes the collation, pagination, indexing & digital scanning of medical records.

We can produce an easily navigational digital booklet of the medical record as part of our collation service which has links and bookmarks.

If you opt for our analysis service, the digital booklet can also include our prepared chronology with links direct from the chronology to the referenced medical records.

We use an digital page referencing system which ensures that all page references are presented neatly with no missed pages and the page referencing does not obscure any document data. We also use an individual page referencing system which ensures that page numbers are not repeated and updating medical records can easily be added at a later date, without the need for extra sections.

Our analysis service includes preparation of either a summary or a full medical records chronology along with identification of any missing medical records and preparation of a list of any additional points of note relevant to the claim.

As part of this service a Chronology Checklist is followed to ensure that all entries relevant to the case are clearly documented in the chronology. The Chronology itself will deal with the following issues:-

  • A summary background/timeline to the claim.
  • Any relevant pre-existing medical history.
  • A specific list of all medical records considered.
  • Identification of any missing medical records or records which should be obtained in the future.
  • Medical treatment received and recommended.
  • Current condition and prognosis.
  • Close scrutiny of the records to document any entry relating to Limitation, Liability, Contributory Negligence. Causation. Quantum (both general and special damages) and Claimant’s creditability.

In addition to our medical record collation and analysis service we also have experience of collating and analysing other records, for example, DSS, Social Services, Local Council, Care Home and Case Management Records.

We also are in the process of implementing a trial bundle preparation service.

We offer a bespoke service which is catered to your own specific requirements. This includes the collation and/or analysis (chronology) of medical records.

Our collation service includes the chronological organisation, detailed indexing, page numbering and digital scanning of medical records. We can provide paper and/or digital copies of the medical records, depending on your own specific requirements.

Our digital records support the paperless office ethos and, because this service is completed as standard, we can also produce an easily navigational digital booklet of the medical records as part of our collation service.

Our analysis service involves the preparation of either a summary or detailed medical record chronology along with a memo containing a summary of the timeline of events, relevant points of note and identification of any relevant missing medical records.

As part of this service a chronology checklist is followed to ensure that all issues relevant to the case are clearly documented in the chronology.

The chronology itself will deal with:

  • A summary background/timeline to the claim.
  • Any relevant pre-existing medical history.
  • A specific list of all medical records considered.
  • Identification of any missing medical records.
  • Medical treatment received and/or recommended.
  • Current condition and prognosis.
  • Close scrutiny of the records to document any entry relating to limitation, liability, contributory negligence, causation, quantum and claimant creditability.

If you also opt for our Chronology service, the digital booklet will also include the prepared chronology and any prepared schedules of radiology, which will have hyperlinks from any page reference direct to the referenced medical record itself.

We use a digital page referencing system which ensures that all page references are presented neatly with no missed pages and the page referencing does not obscure any document data. Our page numbering system is unique which ensures that page numbers are not repeated and updating medical records can easily be added at a later date within existing sections, without the need to add extra sections at the end of the records.
