Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the California DWC’s recent announcement that it has added a new search tool to its website to help the public find Independent Medical Review (IMR) determinations quickly and efficiently.
The DWC noted that more than 300,000 IMR cases have been decided since the medical dispute resolution process was implemented on January 1, 2013. After a determination is made by a physician reviewer, information for each case is posted to the DWC website, and the public can use the new tool to search for decisions by case number, date of injury, specialty of reviewer, and/or category of treatment request. The DWC expects the increased knowledge of past performance will help lead to a more effective IMR process.
