Small details such as illegible handwriting for example, can create major problems. If writing cannot be read, or items are not filed correctly, it can cost the business money. Using a physical therapy software takes care of the small details, and maximizes efficiency.
Billing and coding language is often an issue, as improper terminology can result in mistakes within the office. In addition, physical therapists offer a wide range of services. However, these services may be forgotten during billing time. EMR software offers a simple solution to both of these problems.
Improper documentation, such as loosing or misplacing claims, recording incorrect services, or mistakes made due to human error may also lead to improper billing and thus, a loss of revenue.
According to the website, insurance companies often misplace claims, and sometimes do not receive them. By not conducting scheduled audits on a regular basis, therapists run the risk of losing significant amounts of revenue.
