ImpairmentCheck® helps claims professionals and attorneys improve the accuracy of impairment ratings based on the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. It is a screening and educational tool that provides guidance on probable impairment for most ratable injuries, while also collecting data for continuous quality improvement.

The system is based on our own patented, web-based technologies (8,185,410; 8,615,411). Think of it as part subject-matter expert (SME), part artificial intelligence (AI), and part machine learning. Or don’t think of any of that, just let it help improve the efficiency and quality of your work along with the reliability and accuracy of your reports. We’ve made it easy!

Subscribing to ImpairmentCheck — and using it consistently — will likely result in a multi-fold return on the investment. The annual subscription cost is substantially less than the dollar value of a single erroneous rating!


Risk-free, here’s how:

Your ImpairmentCheck® subscription will be activated within 72 hours, but your credit card will not be charged until 10 days after you register. If you are not enthusiastic, simply cancel your subscription within the 10 days!

You will receive a receipt when your credit card is charged, 10 days following your registration.

​ImpairmentCheck may be integrated with other best practices to ensure the most cost-effective management of impairment ratings, either post-rating or proactive rating management.

No additional fee per evaluation. For a multi-user license or a per-use fee model, please contact us.
