Healthcare Ancillary services – Engage and identify the possibilities to overcome

Take a look at the Bristol Healthcare Services recommends feature, or request a demo of our Services.  There is no one-size-fits all solution, so Bristol Healthcare Services developed a number of different ways for you to get the insights you need.

Ancillary healthcare services refers to the wide range of services to single / Group physicians, Healthcare Facilities, Diagnostic lab’s and other healthcare entities.

Many a times, physicians have to deploy resources such as capital, equipment, software and admin staffs to deal with insurance reimbursement delays.  More often than not, some of these issues can be avoided if only the credentialing process had been carried out properly and thoroughly.

Why a Periodic Visit to the Physician office?

1. General Health check-up

Staying up to date with recommended vaccinations and screenings is a vital part of good health. Periodic health exams and treatment is important because it not only improves the overall prognosis of the disease, but also provides the best opportunity for a cure.

2. Knowing Your Records

Do you know what your cholesterol or blood pressure is? More than 50% of Americans have never had their cholesterol checked. Given that 33.5% of American adults have elevated “bad” cholesterol, and that having high total cholesterol approximately doubles the risk of heart disease, it’s important to get a jump on these numbers. Meanwhile, 31% has high blood pressure, which is a known risk factor for heart attacks, strokes, and kidney disease. Cholesterol and Blood pressure check be responsible for a baseline to compare to over time, so it’s valuable to obtain these numbers while you’re still considered young and healthy. If nil, you can print out the numbers and use them as motivation to be healthier and beat them next year.

3. Crafting Your Medical Record

Periodic visits to the doctor are a chance to update your personal medical record. Most clinics and hospitals apply an EMR to store health information. These histories are important because they are readily available to affiliated hospitals in the event of an emergency.

4. Patient Relationship – Establishing a Trusting Doctor

One of the most blessed parts of medicine is the doctor-patient relationship. This relationship is not built instant, but requires multiple interactions to allow the doctor to really understand the patient. This is particularly important because it can affect the treatment that is prescribed. It is not until a physician understands a patient’s history and values that he or she can help to the best of their abilities. Another major benefit of being an established patient is that most practices have 24/7 help lines; so when it’s weekend night with no one around and nothing open, patients still have access to a familiar physician whom they can call for help.

5. (Effectively) Free Prevention!

Even the most basic insurance companies typically cover the cost of an annual preventive care visit, including necessary lab tests. There might be small co-pay at the time of the visit, but this is usually not more than $25. Physician will meet one-on-one to discuss your personal health needs and concerns. Talk about VALUE FOR THE MONEY SPENT!
