Medical Billing Clearinghouse: Electronic Health Record Use Adopted by an Increasing Number of Practices
Physicians and healthcare providers are continuing to invest in the use of medical claims software systems. According to a survey conducted by the consulting firm Software Advice, they are doing so to increase efficiency for medical staff and for their patients. The survey found that 35 percent medical claims software users indicated that they are investing greater amounts in their systems than in previous years.
One major reason is the desire for mobile access to patient information. Medical billing software partners are able to keep up with technology and provide patient portals for prescribing medication, managing lab results, and communication. While many still access data from a desktop computer, it is possible to access information from laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other portable devices.
In addition to the improved access to patient information, the medical records are more easily read. Legible patient data is a simple way to prevent common errors in claims submissions. Even a misspelled patient name can cause a claim to be rejected, costing several weeks or months to make the correction. This means you receive payments from the insurance companies faster.
