Leading legal software provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced direct integration with the Doctors Chambers medical expert solution.

Eclipse’s Proclaim (one of the family of Proclaim casetypes) is in use at a huge range of claimant law firms who utilise the system to manage claims ‘end-to-end’.  As part of this process, practitioners need to engage a medical agency to provide timely and reliable medical reports from appropriate experts and GPs.  Doctors Chambers is one of the country’s leading medical agencies, providing a full medical reporting and rehabilitation service to UK law firms of all sizes.

The new integration between Eclipse and Doctors Chambers enables those law firms who use both companies to benefit from rapid and automated medical report management.  Proclaim users can make a ‘1 click’ request from the system which directly communicates with the Doctors Chambers ‘DC Cloud’ solution.  Information is passed back to Proclaim (for example, a list of available GP appointments) and from here the two systems can share information about the claim and ongoing progress.  Documentation, payment data and invoices can be shared between the two, in real-time, streamlining traditional manual ‘request and wait’ processes.

Eclipse’s Business Solutions Director, Tracy Blencowe, comments: “This integration provides clients of Eclipse and Doctors Chambers with a fat-reducing way in which to manage medical reporting.  Streamlining administration is becoming vital in light of legislative pressures on personal injury, and solutions which remove non value-adding work are in high demand.”

Dr Bippon Vinayak, CEO of Doctors Chambers, adds: “The integration between Proclaim and DC Cloud is truly application-to-application, and this provides the quickest and most secure way in which to rapidly share confidential medical information.  We have worked together to produce a truly efficiency-enhancing solution.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
