“For some, an EMR is a new element in their practice,” said Chhoda. “They’re not aware of the full extent of the system’s ability to accelerate the reimbursement process and reduce the number of rejections and denials to almost zero.”
Chhoda said practitioners should be aware that an integrated EMR system is fully able to handle the transition to ICD-10 codes to be implemented in 2014. There’s no need for additional software and EMRs are equipped with the ability to identify potential problems with reimbursement claims before they’re submitted.
An EMR is an indispensable tool, but the services of a billing and coding specialist is essential to bring human understanding and technology together. The primary reasons that claims are rejected can occur at any point in the payment cycle process and Chhoda offered the following tips to help practitioners reduce contestations, denials and rejections, and decrease reimbursement turnaround times.
Medical billing and coding is a time consuming process with multiple opportunities for errors and mistakes, but it’s necessary for practitioners to be paid. Chhoda’s new information provides clinicians with a checklist that will improve their reimbursement rates significantly. A skilled billing and coding specialist armed with the capabilities of EMR technology allows practices to increase efficiency, productivity and revenues.
