Medical-legal consulting as a side gig

“Medical-legal consulting is a great way to use your medical training in a non-clinical field that helps people. I started this field 14 years ago and have trained over 1,600 physicians to be medical-legal consultants. Most physicians do medical-legal consulting as a part-time side gig. All of the work is pre-litigation and pre-trial. I don’t act as a medical expert, and I don’t participate in medical malpractice cases.

There are over a dozen services and types of consultations I offer attorneys. One service we frequently provide is to give our opinions regarding specific medical questions that arise in cases. Usually, these reports help the attorney to prove a particular medical theory for the case.”

Armin Feldman is a medical consultant to attorneys.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Medical-legal consulting as a side gig.”

This episode is sponsored by Athelas, the number one provider of remote patient monitoring.

Did you know more than 65 percent of doctors are actively investing in remote patient monitoring?

That’s because RPM is the fastest-growing segment in health care today. And for good reason:

RPM boosts patient outcomes through preventative care. In fact, a recent study by the VA showed that implementing RPM at a practice can reduce hospital readmission rates by as much as 25 percent, saving more than $20,000 per patient in medical costs.

If you’re not investing in RPM, you’re missing out. Luckily, Athelas can help you roll out RPM end-to-end. They provide devices to your patients, handle 100 percent of billing, and even provide a team of nurses to monitor patient vitals for you. All at zero net cost to your practice.

Try out RPM for your practice by going to KevinMD.com/tryrpm.
