The Benefits of Clearinghouses for Processing Claims

fotolia 39775926 xs

When the healthcare industry began transmitting claims electronically, Medicare and large insurance payers envisioned clearinghouses as a way to manage the flow of information. Clearinghouses are software-based hubs that allow healthcare practices to transmit protected health information in a secure, efficient manner. Healthcare facilities can consolidate electronic claims and manage them from a single location through an online dashboard. After clearinghouses scrub claims, they transmit electronic claim information securely to the insurance carrier for reimbursement.

Cloud Communications

Making sure your communications are secure has become a central focus for behavioral health agencies. Gone are the days when it’s okay to leave sheets in a fax machine or send private medical information through regular email. ClinicTracker’s integrated Cloud Communications package (which includes Cloud Fax and Direct Secure Messaging services) lets you exchange all incoming and outgoing messages securely and directly from within your EHR.

Cloud Faxing

Old-fashioned fax machines are steadily fading from clinical settings because they cannot guarantee that the right person receives the right document every time. They also make snooping far too easy. True, you can scan documents and attach to a standard email, but this is not a HIPAA-compliant methods for transmitting Personal Health Information (PHI).

Cloud faxing allows users to organize documents and manage who has access to specific files. By managing contacts through a cloud-based fax system, document control is effortlessly straightforward:

  • Eliminate the traditional fax machine from your practice
  • Save time by sending faxes just like you would compose an email
  • Keep all of your communications well-organized and secure

Direct Secure Messaging

Direct Secure Messaging is the accepted protocol for exchanging PHI over the internet. Unlike regular email, Direct messages are authenticated and encrypted to ensure sensitive data are sent and received only by authorized parties.

Federal regulations require that you securely transmit any messages to an outside provider that contains PHI. These rules ensure that your patients' privacy is always protected. The latest secure encryption technology is used to send messages, file attachments, and C-CDA (Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture) records directly through ClinicTracker. In fact, if your agency uses the ClinicTracker Patient Portal, your patients will be able to forward their medical records (in C-CDA format) to outside providers, safe in the knowledge that the information is protected.

  • Send and receive any patient information over a trusted HIPAA-compliant network
  • Stay compliant with Meaningful Use regulations

Patient Statement Service

ClinicTracker has partnered with TriZetto Provider Solutions to offer a secure solution for generating and mailing patient statements. Fully integrated into ClinicTracker, it reduces costs, gets bills out quicker, and improves cashflow – all with less effort and paperwork.

They get a professional-looking bill that’s always on time and convenient to pay.

The Advantages of a Paperless Behavioral Health Office

Who among us has not faced a deadline – a grant application or income taxes, for example – and wasted precious time hunting for a specific statistic or date? Today’s ever-improving technology makes that time-consuming panic unnecessary. Fast, efficient computer programs and applications allow us to track and store mountains of information in secure, accessible formats. Apply those concepts to running a business, and you’re on your way to creating a paperless (or at least a less paper-filled) office.

An EHR Sophisticated Enough for Training Clinics

ClinicTracker’s originator, Dr. Michael Gordon, discusses how having students influenced the system’s development.

Involving trainees in clinic life requires administrators to track complex workflows and communications. They also have to make it as easy as possible for supervisors and staff to collaborate on cases, manage paperwork flow, and analyze clinical and supervisory caseloads. One of the main reasons ClinicTracker is so sophisticated stems from the fact that it grew up in an academic training clinic within a department of psychiatry.
