Medical billing has become almost as complex as the practice of medicine itself
Little Rock, Ark. (Vocus) August 14, 2009
August 12, 2009 —Bobby Powers, CEO of eMedDox digital medical transcription services, has announced the addition of billing and coding services to further enhance the company’s ability to save healthcare industry clients time and money. The new service addresses the critical need for healthcare administrators to stay abreast of ever-changing regulations without taking too much time away from patient care. In addition to the service eMedDox has launched a new blog on ICD-10 implementations to provide the health care industry with needed information on the upcoming ICD-10 transition.
“Medical billing has become almost as complex as the practice of medicine itself,” Powers said when unveiling the new service. “Changing federal, state, and local policies—as well as fluctuations in HIPAA and other compliance requirements—may be causing healthcare facility staff to spend more time than administrators can afford, just keeping up with the changes.”
Widely recognized for their expertise in the field of healthcare information technology, the certified staff at eMedDox is available to help healthcare clients with the following coding and billing procedures:
- Daily transmittal of medical insurance claims to each insurance company
- Daily review of insurance responses and communications
- Daily posting of insurance and patient payments
- In-depth assessments of coding structure
- Personal consultation and advice about how to maximize reimbursement
- Regular posting of all patient charges, payments, and adjustments
- Efficient, accurate generation and mailing of patient statements for all open accounts
- Comprehensive preparation for ICD-10 implementation
“Adding coding and billing services to our already robust lineup of next-generation digital medical transcription services demonstrates our commitment to partnering with healthcare providers to make their practices more productive, more efficient, and more profitable,” Powers said. “Most importantly, clients who let eMedDox manage their billing and coding needs will allow personnel to focus on their number-one priority: giving patients the best care possible.”
The new coding and billing services are available immediately, and round out a list of comprehensive services offered by eMedDox, a trusted leader in the digital medical transcription services industry. “Our ability to interface with EMR’s, practice management software, patient scheduling software, and now billing and coding software, sets us apart from our competitors,” says Robb Grice, Director of Sales for eMedDox.
Since 1998, eMedDox has remained on the leading edge of technological advances, providing clients with the technology, tools, and training they need to ensure their medical records, and record-keeping systems are up-to-date, accurate, complete, accessible, and secure.
