In addition to delivering our core services, we aim to equip our clients with detailed memos and guidance, empowering them to effortlessly navigate the meticulously sorted and ordered records.

Our journey began in Altrincham, Manchester, where our founder, Sally Gordon, identified a market need and initiated our services from the confines of a back bedroom.

The future (MRC AI)

In the dynamic landscape of legal proceedings, MRC is pioneering a transformative shift in medical record collation. Our cutting-edge AI pre-sorting service is a game-changer, expediting every legal case’s journey.

MRC AI has been meticulously trained using a combination of manual data tagging and complex algorithms, enabling the AI to learn and understand what the process entails to correctly sort and paginate an unsorted bundle of medical records.. It has been a long and challenging two years of development, extensive training, time and investment, but we are delighted that now, our AI solution will enable solicitors to pre-sort and risk assess cases before insuring in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost.

MRC AI offers the potential to efficiently pre-sort thousands of cases, allowing solicitors to swiftly assess a case’s merits within minutes. This revolutionary service expedites the time-consuming and manual task of case’s merits and risks assessment by providing a chronological index and bundle for easy navigation.

At the core of this innovation is the ability to process 1,000 pages of medical records every 15 minutes. This enables solicitors to quickly identify case merits, streamlining the entire legal process and providing a competitive edge.

The versatility of our MRC AI goes beyond case determination. It extends to the full sorting of medical records, providing a comprehensive understanding of case timelines and details. Empowering legal professionals to navigate a case at all stages with unparalleled ease.

MRC AI is poised to be a transformative force in the medico-legal sector, setting a new standard for efficiency with its unparalleled speed, adaptability and language capabilities. As we embrace this technological evolution, MRC stands at the forefront of innovation, propelling the legal industry into a future where efficiency, accuracy and insight converge seamlessly.

 

Sustainability

At the heart of our corporate ethos lies a robust commitment to social responsibility, evident in our community engagement and working practices. Historically, our operations focused on hard copy records, contributing to a relatively large carbon footprint and printing over a million pages annually. In response to our commitments, our evolution and our ambitions, we have reshaped our services to reduce our environmental impact, pledging to transition to a fully digital service by the end of 2024. This commitment is underscored by our partnership with JUST ONE Tree who support us with our environmental, social and governance goals.

Becoming a fully digital service, we project a substantial reduction in our annual environmental impact, including:

  • 60 tonnes of CO2 emissions,
  • 40,000 kWh of energy,
  • 356,000 units of water use, and
  • The preservation of 160 trees.

To address MRC’s environmental impact, we have committed to a tree-planting initiative over the next five years, ensuring that for each tree felled throughout our 15-year journey so far, a new one is planted, aligning with our dedication to sustainable practices. Furthermore, we have pledged to plant 1 tree for every case that we complete going forwards, rooting our commitment to being a better contributor to our planet and its people.
