What is the purpose of the MIR Registry?

The sole purpose of the Medical Impairment Rating (MIR) Registry is to establish a resource to resolve disputes as to the degree of permanent medical impairment ratings given for injuries or occupational diseases to which the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Act is applicable. A dispute is recognized whenever at least two different physicians have issued differing permanent medical impairment ratings and the parties disagree as to those ratings; or whenever a physician has issued an opinion that no permanent medical impairment exists, yet the physician has issued permanent physical restrictions to the injured employee. Registry physicians agree to provide evaluations in a manner consistent with the standard of care in their community and in compliance with the MIR Program Rules.
