A better way.

LMN Builder saves time and increases quality.

"C
linicians who use this tool are smart to find a way to get better information to the medical reviewer. They now have a tool that accurately conveys the client's situation and needs in the letter format."

The current model for documenting medical necessity is inefficient and time consuming. Clinicians struggle to write cogent and complete letters of medical necessity because of the time constraints put on them in their daily practice and the amount of time required to complete a letter. Information can be omitted and the medical reviewer is left with a sketch of the condition and medical needs of the end user. The reviewer often has great difficulty organizing and interpreting all of the information provided to make an appropriate decision regarding medical necessity.

The old way

Clinicians generally have to work from a faxed or mailed spec sheet sent to them by the Rehab Technology Specialist (RTS). They use old letters, copy paste the parts they need and change the names and gender pronouns. Then the clinician has to modify the text to accurately represent the client that they are describing. If they do not have a similar letter a new letter must be written from scratch. This process is time consuming and puts an extra burden on the clinician. Often times the clinicians do not know what information is required and helpful for the medical reviewer to make a good decision.

The better way

LMNBuilder.com is a free web tool that helps clinicians create letters of medical necessity (LMN's) in their own words. As the tool is used, it remembers how the clinician justifies each item as they write. The more letters that are written, the more the tool is able to tailor itself and learn the clinician's words you. The LMN Builder tool is essentially a web based wizard that facilitates the letter writing process.

The tool does not write the letter for the clinician.

  • No content makes it into a letter that is not created / reviewed by the clinician
  • The tool remembers how the clinician justifies each item and gives them the ability to save that justification as an alternate justification for future use in a similar situation.
  • The letter produced in LMN Builder is no different than typing a regular document except the tool saves the clinician time, allows for more content and can be accessed from any computer with internet access

Building better letters.

The LMN Builder tool makes it easy for the clinician to add helpful information to the letters.

  • Client Photos-document trials and client images
  • Clinical assessment tools-manual muscle tests, balance assessment, growth calculators
  • Seating assessment data-postural orientation, risk for skin breakdown, functional abilities
  • Research and resource links- web links with research material that the clinician feels supports the plan of care to provide the recommended equipment through evidence based practice
  • White Sheets-product pictures and other pertinent information
