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.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
