Medical Billing Blogs
As we reach the end of the year, medical practices will often see an increase in appointments as elective surgeries come up, deductibles are met, and the cold/flu season begins. Is your office prepared?
Evaluate your current staff schedule and how your office handled last year’s busy season. Did the schedule optimize your staff’s time and ability to take on patients? Did one team struggle the most? Logically decide what area needs more support for the upcoming season and whether a full- or part-time help will be necessary to keep the practice running smoothly and on-budget.
VP of Technology and Client Relations – Joe Kubisiak discusses a case study involving the high demand within an urgent care clinic and how ORI was able to help them get to the next level of performance and streamlining operations. From issues with coding to patient flow – ORI was able to implement a process that increased production and revenue for the urgent care clinic.
Imagine this, your patient arrives for their first visit and instead of handing them a clipboard, pen, and stack of paper forms to fill out they receive an iPad instead. The forms you need to collect are quickly filled out electronically and entered securely into your practice management system. Your patient is happy because the normal time-wasting and sometimes frustrating paper process took no time at all. Your staff is happy because they’re no longer stuck keying all the information into the system and you’re happy because the information was collected correctly and efficiently saving your practice money.
Can a different practice management system really make a difference for your medical practice? The simple answer is yes.
In a case study done by CareCloud, Island Endoscopy Center ran into issues with their billing due to an inefficient legacy system and overseas billing partner. Their “billing codes had to be manually transcribed into a separate practice management system” because their EHR did not have the bandwidth to handle the full billing process, and it also lacked performance transparency. After finding a better system software and billing partner that was not overseas, they began to see overall improvements.
