“No matter how careful a practice is, they are still faced with denials and rejections from insurance companies. Implementing the right and most effective physical therapy documentation software can help a practice keep records that are so concise and accurate that greatly minimized the number of contested claims,” said Chhoda.
Chhoda added that he has spent many years analyzing what makes practices most efficient and how physical therapy billing professionals struggle to minimize insurance denials. What he has learned is that it simply takes a bit of structure to turn a struggling billing professional into an expert one who knows how to not only minimize denials but to effectively contest claims that have already been denied. This structure can be achieved with EMR for physical therapy services.
He said that physical therapy EMR is so effective because it allows practices to report and document aspects of the practice that have never been possible before. Chhoda noted that the way to use EMR effectively in order to minimize denials is that the staff has to embrace the new system and has to begin using it immediately.
Chhoda reveals the two most important aspects of using EMR to minimize insurance denials. First, changing the way therapists document patients visits and must begin immediately after the system is implemented. Second, the medical billing staff must take responsibility for inputting the information correctly and catching mistakes as they happen.
When these two important things happen, EMR becomes an incredibly effective tool for minimizing insurance denials.
