Our Mission is to provide:

Quality Reports by independent professionals who consistently express their medical opinions accurately, objectively and in accordance with the timelines required.

MES Solutions Client Services Representatives are available to ensure exemplary service is provided and to help facilitate questions or needs that a client may have. These professionals are the liaison with the operations servicing the referrals.
All medical reports are reviewed by the Quality Assurance Department. The QA staff consists of experienced professionals from the claims or legal industry. Staff members undergo extensive and ongoing training on: 1) proper use of the AMA guidelines; 2) local law changes that affect reporting requirements; and 3) client requirements.
Another mandate of the QA Department is to facilitate constructive communications between the client and the physician. The QA staff ensures that every question posted in the purpose letter is answered and that the internal consistency of the report is maintained. If additional records or questions are supplied subsequent to the issuing of the original report, the QA staff will contact the physician to obtain this information in an expeditious manner. Finally, the QA staff will keep the client updated on the status of any inquiry or pending report.
