Product Description

AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 6th Edition

This edition applies both terminology from and an analytical framework based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), to generate five impairment classes which permit the rating of the patient from no impairment to most severe. A diagnosis-based grid has been developed for each organ system. The grid arranges commonly used ICD-9 diagnoses within the five classes of impairment severity, according to the consensus-based dominant criterion.

Functionally based histories, physical findings and broadly accepted objective clinical test results are integrated where applicable to help physicians determine the grade within the impairment class. The result is a decision that is both transparent and reproducible.

  • Using the latest evidence in diagnosis and clinical tests, the new sixth edition offers the following key features:
  • Standardized approach across organ systems and chapters
  • Expanded use of diagnostic approach to help physicians consider relevant clinical tests and patient outcomes in performing the rating
  • Required clinical information needed to rate a given condition
  • Clear step-by-step grading instructions in each chapter to promote consistent scoring of impairment ratings and to improve physician consistency
  • Simplified methodology presented between chapters
  • Contemporary, evidence-based concepts and terminology of disablement from the ICF
  • The latest scientific research and evolving medical opinion provided by nationally and internationally recognized experts
  • More comprehensive and expanded diagnostic approach
  • Transparent process to allow the evaluator to document functional assessment, clinical tests and physical findings
  • Uniform grids to help physicians calculate impairment ratings
