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.”

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

mena_ruparel

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
