What is EHR and medical billing integration

Medical practices struggling with time and energy-consuming paperwork can achieve enhanced RCM metrics by adopting Electronic Health Records (EHR) and integrating EHR and medical billing. Electronic processing of the billing-related tasks, managing claims, payment processing and tracking/reporting problems can be made simpler, accurate and faster through integrated medical billing. EHR is becoming the norm across the healthcare industry, and EHR and medical billing integration is the way forward.

An integrated medical billing system must be able to lead to total automation in a practice. EHR integration requires the medical billing system to have the ability to build charts towards medical claims that include details of patient visits, diagnosis details, lab details, etc. This is to say, all operational dimensions of the practice must be successfully merged into the integrated medical billing solution.  (more…)

3 Methods that Guarantee Increased Revenue for your Practice

Medical professionals go through a long period of training before they can take care of patients. The rigorous training prepares them for a life of service to others. Sadly they are ill-prepared to take care of the business side of their practice. Here are three tips that will guarantee increased revenue.

1) Robust knowledge of processes

The primary and the most crucial aspect of reducing claims denials and improving medical practice revenue is understanding the medical coding and billing process completely. Medical billing and coding processes are rather complex and require that the individuals handling them be knowledgeable and aware of the industry’s constant changes. This requires an understanding of the insurance policy, the rules for processing a claim and a thorough knowledge of ICD-10, CPT, HCPCS and HCC. Finally, an excellent Revenue Cycle Management tool is needed for managing the entire process. Since every payor has its policy, it is imperative to understand their rules and regulations for processing claims. Equally, one should keep abreast of the changes introduced by payors. Such knowledge makes sure that claims pass through the system with minimal issues/denials, thus exponentially increasing revenue. Studying and analyzing past denials helps discover trends, which ensures that mistakes/omissions do not recur.  (more…)
