Injury Case Deterioration

A probable diagnosis can be made based upon medical records without actually seeing the patient. Police Departments, the FBI, the CIA and other organizations are able to determine why, how and when an individual performs certain actions based upon behavioral profiling.

With a careful review of medical records, you can form theories and suspicions as to what is wrong with a patient and/or why the patient is behaving as he/she is.

From reviewing medical records, you can offer diagnostic possibilities and even diagnostic probabilities.

Medical records reviews are always performed when a patient is seen. Medical records are also performed when, for a variety of reasons, a patient cannot be seen in a face-to-face examination.

There is a consistency and a meaning to all human behavior. Medical records provide an opportunity to examine the pattern of behavior and to determine why the patient is responding in a particular way and what the patient is likely to do in the future.
