Independent Medical Evaluation (IME)

In many work-related performance issues or injuries IME’s are conducted to determine the cause, extent and advised/referred medical treatment.  These evaluations are most often performed at the request of an employer or an insurance carrier to obtain an independent opinion of the medical status of the individual being assessed.  An IME provides a thoroughly objective, impartial assessment of an individual’s diagnoses, prognosis and recommendations for treatment and recovery.  A Precede IME occurs only when our physicians and Registered Nurses have not previously been involved in that person’s care or initial assessment.

Based on a comprehensive review of the individual’s history, an extensive interview process and an objective medical assessment, Precede Occupational Health Services will provide your company with a detailed, highly defensible report.

IME services at Precede are individualized and customized to each company’s needs. The IME process can include the following:

  • Nursing Assessment

  • Mental Health and/or Psychological Assessment

  • Physician and/or Registered Nurse thorough Medical Assessment

  • Chain of custody drug screen, Breath Alcohol Screen
