Is Outsourcing Your Billing Right For You?

Outsource Medical Billing thumb

Years ago, a doctor's offices could be self-contained and efficient. The physician had plenty of time to treat patients, while his efficient nurse/secretary tracked medical records, set appointments, and processed bills and payments. But today's complex healthcare system has made that memory a distant one. Doctors are increasingly pressed for time amid federal mandates for EHR and meaningful-use compliance, complex diagnosis and billing codes, and bewildering payment and reimbursement models.

Achieve Greater Billing Success

Hear what one of our clients had to say about us:

I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for all your sustained efforts with the billing. I found out on Friday that we are getting a huge payment this week for a regular weekly electronic batch from Fidelis and claims are also approved for the following week. So it looks like we are up and running with our main payer for weekly claims! 

This is a huge moment for us since it represents financial stability and sustainability. We couldn’t have done it without all of your efforts and support, through a particularly challenging time for our agency. Thanks for keeping at it and enduring a very drawn-out and stressful process as we got everything in order despite unforeseen roadblocks we ran into as a new clinic. I look forward to continuing our work together.

Frustrated Doctor

Physicians have freely expressed frustration over the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Meaningful Use program.“Doctors want to spend their time with patients, not measuring the number of clicks,” American Medical Association (AMA) President Steven J. Stack, MD, said late last year in a statement.

Life and Times of a Custom Form: Part 1 - Overview

What makes ClinicTracker unique is the extent to which you can customize it down to the smallest detail. But we have learned that users are unaware of all the options available to them in shaping the program to their exact needs. In this series, we will illustrate those options by sharing one clinic’s experience creating a form, embedding it in a compliance workflow, and generating customized reports. Register Now

Life and Times of a Custom Form: Part 2 - Building the Form

The first step in creating a custom form is to decide exactly what information you want to collect and how you want that data entered into the system. You want complete control to accommodate the information you need to gather, as well as flexibility to allow people to enter that information in ways that support their daily workflows. We will share an example of how one clinic designed and implemented a custom form into their clinic workflow. Register Now
