95% of cases are completed within 2 hours by the physician. Once we send a notification, the physician has 8 hours to accept the case. Then, assuming a standard case, they have two weeks to review the medical records and have the 30-minute Review Call with the client.
In nearly every case, physicians are not required to be deposed or to get involved in litigation. The physician can note to the client whether they are willing to participate if asked.
For claims reviews – there are no lengthy write-ups involved. Just a 30-minute phone call with the claims professional.
For peer reviews – there is no phone call required. Clients will receive a written report from their expert.
At a minimum, each case pays $800 to the physician whether or not you use the whole 2 hours. Complex reviews and certain specialties carry a premium.
Medplace matches the expert to a case. Once you accept it, you can immediately view all medical records securely through any web browser.
For claims reviews: once you have reviewed the records, schedule a 30-minute phone call with the client and verbally discuss your thoughts.
For peer reviews: review the records and deliver a report on your analysis to the client.
These cases are generally asking whether the standard of care was met.
The physician can review the basic case synopsis and last name of the insured and patient before accepting.
You can always pause your availability at any time through your Medplace profile, but to continue to get cases, you must accept cases that are sent to you as much as possible.
Remember that you have two full weeks to deliver on the case once you accept.

All physicians start on the waitlist. Depending on our needs, Medplace pulls new physicians from that waitlist, evaluates their background, and then puts the most qualified physicians through a rapid onboarding. Here is the basic process:
Medplace has a screening process and does not accept all experts. We pride ourselves in only working with the best physicians and nurses and making the Medplace platform a delightful experience for our experts and clients.
Besides experience, we screen for communication, general disposition, and professionalism. We also confirm credentials and do background checks.
