Functional Capacity Evaluations Guelph

Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs) are examinations performed by a healthcare professional who has no other involvement in the examinee's care, to establish current clinical status and clarify legally significant case issues - medical and other. IMEs are performed to provide current, unbiased impartial information for case management and /or for use as evidence in hearings and other legal proceedings. They are a component of all workers' compensation statutes.

The sole purpose of an IME is to provide information to the client who requested the evaluation. Therefore, although an IME involves a provider (examiner) and a patient (examinee), the IME is not a "doctor-patient treating relationship", and no such relationship is established. Providers involved in normal treating relationships with their patients are bound by medical practice ethics and expected to be patient advocates while providing optimal and appropriate treatment.
