Great for multiple centers or providers

I'm an employer and use an occupational medicine specialist for our exams, do I need this service?

Unfortunately, even in occmed focused practices we see inconsistent examination results.  Having a third party provide an unbiased review is a wise Q&A process on a periodic basis. 

Can't our Medical Director do this?

In many cases, yes.  Having it done by a third party assures it is unbiased and objective, so a "spot check" never hurts!

Does it matter if we are or work with a large multi-site occupational medicine practice?

Dr. Earl has done these audits for small independent practices and as a consultant for Concentra, so any size practice should have an objective outside audit periodically.

Do you provide training for our staff?

We have online training for providers for certified medical examiner programs, other urgent care and occmed topics, and feature other partners and resources to provide additional training.

What information do we need to send for you to conduct our audit?

You'll get an email after you submit your order requesting the documentation needed.  If you're an employer, you'll need to forward this to your medical provider.

Is it HIPAA compliant?

Documentation is submitted to a HIPAA compliant secure folder.

How soon will I get the report?
