“There are many advantages of electronic medical records and one of the most often emphasized is the advantages for the medical billing staff.” said Nitin Chhoda, a licensed physical therapist and private practice marketing expert. “With EMR everyone else working in the office can be a bit faster and more efficient because information is processed so much more smoothly.”
Information found on Chhoda’s website http://www.emrnews.com supports the fact that even if doctors hire a medical billing company, having an EMR will have distinct advantages over processing billing any other way. “The only challenge of hiring a medical billing company is deciding how the critical notes and information will be transferred from the doctor’s practice to the medical billing company. The billers will need a lot of information from the practice, and to ensure that information is accurate, they will need to integrate their information systems,” he added. “It’s possible that this will not be an issue if doctors’ offices have a high quality EMR that records all of the information already.”
No matter what medical staff ends up doing in the short term, having an EMR already in place will allow them to transfer information quickly and efficiently. In fact, when choosing a medical EMR, they should consider the reporting capabilities and features that will allow them to work with a medical billing company. There are plenty of EMR solutions out there that are designed to make medical billing easy, whether staffers do the medical billing in-house or they hire the work out to a medical billing company.
The website, also known as the “Electronic Medical Records 101 for the Busy Clinician”, is a valuable resource for those in the medical field interested in articles on subjects like “Health Care for Patients with Modern Technology” and “Physical Therapy Marketing to Patients - Part of Healthcare Today”. The website also focuses on physical therapy software that includes physical therapy billing and management as well as PT scheduling software and occupational therapy software.
