Lake Forest, IL (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Meaningful Use Stage 2 of the EHR Incentive Program focuses on new objectives including improved patient care, patient engagement, care coordination, and cost and time savings for medical practitioners and hospitals.
Meeting the Meaningful Use Stage 2 aims will require more complete patient records and detailed information for accurate medical billing and coding. To assist with fulfilling the core objectives, Scribe Healthcare Technologies, Inc. (http://www.scribe.com) has partnered with M-Scribe Technologies, LLC (http://www.m-scribe.com) for significantly expanded clinical documentation improvement offerings.
Scribe has built a robust infrastructure to capture dictated reports, manage transcribed patient records, and automate EHR population. M-Scribe has a team of experienced documentation specialists who are Certified Professional Coders (CPC). Together, they provide a comprehensive solution for medical documentation, billing, and coding.
Adhering to new reporting standards and demonstrating clinical quality measures can be cumbersome to a practice or hospital’s staff and revenue stream. “This partnership solidifies the complete process from documentation through coding to billing for our clients,” said ¬Mark Boyce, CEO of Scribe. “Together, we enhance our ability to help practices achieve Meaningful Use and safeguard revenue with streamlined and cost-effective technologies.”
The combined expertise in assessing and reviewing documentation processes helps medical organizations reduce claim errors and denials. Teams review documentation processes, EHR auto-generated codes, and prepare for audits. Despite the delay to 2015, the transition to the ICD-10 coding system is looming. Scribe and M-Scribe’s advanced knowledge in ICD-10 coding aids in planning for this conversion, eliminating any worries and ensuring a smooth transition.
Picture the day when a physician can sit with the patient, no paper, no pen, no laptop and no tablet. Just the patient and the doctor. Minutes later the entire encounter is documented, labs and prescriptions are ordered, and billing is completed. No mouse required. No need to imagine. That day is here.
"We deliver complete, comprehensive and accurate documentation," commented Harold R. Gibson, CFO of M-Scribe. "We improve reimbursement rates and reduce risk through reduced coding errors and consistency in reporting. Our practices see an overall 15% increase in revenues within 6 months of utilizing our RCM services.”
This partnership intensifies the two companies’ breadth of experience and proven ability to identify higher levels of service to improve payments for services physicians rendered. Coding and documentation gap analyses also reduce susceptibility to RAC audits and avert over-billing or under-billing. Services (http://marketing.scribe.com/index.php/clinical-documentation-specialists/) are offered as a bundled package but are also offered separately to accommodate every practice or hospital’s clinical documentation, billing and coding needs.
