Q. Why should a medical provider, AME, or Independent Medical Examiner, use DepoExpress summaries?TOP

A. If you are a medical provider evaluating a workers' compensation applicant or an injured party, read our topic-by-topic summaries to save you countless hours compared to trudging through depositions you would otherwise have to review in connection with your evaluation. The topic-by-topic summaries can be organized into topics such as Work History, Injury, Past History, School History, Military History, Legal History, Medical History, and Psychiatric History, so that you can easily navigate deposition testimony and pinpoint the information that you need. We will use the topics that best suit your needs.

Q. I use software to summarize my depositions. How does a DepoExpress summary differ from what I'm currently using?TOP

A. Transcript management software like LiveNote®, CT Summation®, or TextMap® index and annotate your transcripts and its keywords, but they do not summarize testimony or facts. To gain an understanding of the facts and what the witness testified to, you must read a true summary written by a person. Click here to see a sample
