Manchester, NH – The Windham Group has launched Logical IME, a new independent medical examination company serving workers’ compensation payers.
“We have created a simple, comprehensive, time-saving, and price-transparent IME experience for claims professionals,” said Logical IME President Jim Lovett.
Conducted by physicians who specialize in treating the condition and who have not previously cared for the injured employee, an IME involves a comprehensive medical record review and physical examination. IME reports render objective, expert opinions on diagnosis and treatment and are often used to determine return-to-work capacity and disability ratings, identify treatment options, and help settle claims. Logical IME was created to manage and streamline the process and provide pricing transparency to the industry.
“Payers are often quoted one amount for an IME, but find that the final invoice is significantly higher,” Lovett explained. “We’re committed to honoring our quotes and providing complete pricing transparency with line-item invoices.”
Logical IME simplifies the entire process, from referral to report. The company identifies physician examiners, schedules appointments, arranges transportation and translation services, and manages other details.
“Logical IME’s online referral portal helps claim handlers create a customized cover letter so physicians know this isn’t another template referral,” said Logical IME’s Director of Clinical Operations Brittany Soos. “We take the details seriously.”
IME reports undergo quality assurance review and are formatted and color-coded to provide fast, coherent and concise findings that claims handlers can use immediately. Logical IME is rolling out services regionally, starting with New England and plans to provide services nationally in the next six to 12 months.
