Software is more a part of modern medicine than ever before. Recent developments like the ACA often come with financial incentives for healthcare institutions to modernize, as well as penalties for not doing so. Medical institutions look to improve their efficiency, effectiveness and compliance by integrating electronic health records, billing and insurance, practice management systems, and clinical components into their administrative systems. Implementing new systems and migrating from legacy systems involves significant risks in the areas of budget, schedule, and functionality, among others. When disputes concerning such systems arise, determining which party bears responsibility typically requires the assistance of an expert.
DisputeSoft has served as an independent expert in healthcare software for hospitals, clinics, physician and dental practices, government exchanges, software developers and system integrators.
In cases of alleged medical malpractice, a forensics investigator or software expert can examine electronic records, radiology reports, hospital networks and systems, and medical machine software to assess whether a doctor or other medical professional fell short of the required standard of care. Forensic evidence can prove pivotal in determining whether the record supports a claim of medical malpractice. Our experts are able to extract and analyze the metadata stored by a wide variety of software and systems, which can help support or refute claims with regard to whether malpractice occurred, when it took place, and what parties were involved.
