March 2015 – Capita Medical reporting ready for MedCo

19th March 2015

Capita Medical reporting, the UK’s market leader for medico-legal outsourcing, is pleased to announce that it is operationally ready and prepared for the introduction of Medco Registration Solutions, which comes into effect on 6th April 2015.

From this date, solicitors dealing with RTA soft tissue injury claims will have to instruct a medical reporting organisation (MRO) or a medical expert to provide a report through a new online portal known as MedCo.

Users will be able to search on the Medco portal for either individual experts or an MRO to provide the initial medico-legal report. An MRO-based search will randomly produce one high-volume national MRO (first tier) and six smaller MROs (second tier), and an individual expert search will produce a shortlist of seven medical experts.

If Capita Medical reporting, which is registered as a high-volume national MRO provider, is an option on an existing customer’s MedCo search results, they will be free to instruct in exactly the same way as they do now – all they will need to do is to complete our new standard terms and conditions (T&Cs).

If they are new users, it takes just 24 hours* to start an instruction:

Step 1: Contact Capita Medical reporting on 03451 306 673 or [email protected] with a new instruction

Step 2: Our new instructor team will guide you through the registration process

Step 3: Complete our online New Instructor Form

Step 4: Sign and return our standard T&Cs

Step 5: Your account will be activated within 24 hours

Step 6: Instructions can now be actioned

Throughout this process, our dedicated new instructor team will ensure that they do all the hard work for you and make the switch to Capita Medical reporting as smooth as possible, for you and your client.
