EHR Implementation and its Buying Challenges

September 14th, 2016 Posted by News 0 comments on “EHR Implementation and its Buying Challenges”

Deciding on the perfect EHR for your practice is a big decision. You must have already faced the challenges in taking that difficult decision, cure and might have taken a sigh of relief assuming that the toughest part of your EHR implementation is over. But, case hang on. It’s not over yet, because to justify that your decision of choosing a specific EHR was right, it has to perform the way it has been promised to you.

A lot has been written about the importance of choosing the right health EHR system, however, there is no assurance that your elaborate process of EHR selection actually leads you to a much successful and long term result-based choice. Unfortunately, most of the times, the practices get trapped by good marketers with poor products. Their marketing might have helped you in making that decision, but how right is it for you?

Many a time, what sounds like a perfect bet, turns out to be a total failure, and this happens quite often with the EHR implementation. That’s because, choosing an EHR is a tricky process where the chances of going wrong is high because the EHR sales prospects mainly fall into three major categories:

The ones who are yet to explore the EHR world and are still dependent on the paper process
The ones who have laid their hands on EHRs and have failed miserably
The ones who have successfully used EHRs, but are presently looking for something much advanced
The biggest challenge is in convincing the second category of people who have burnt their fingers first. They have the experience of getting trapped with the wrong choice, making them too critical of all the other contenders. The major issue with this category is that they end up analyzing the demos critically. And when they find similar features in all the systems, they come to the conclusion that since they all have same features, they would function similarly. They end up analyzing it so critically that they stop realizing the actual goal of their EHR selection.

To understand whether the system is meant for your practice or not, you have to get operational. With a wrong choice in the previous attempt, convincing a practice to take another EHR implementation for operation is challenging.

Issues that have the greatest impact on successful EHR implementation are

Vendors misrepresent the complete functionality and limits of their products
Vendors fail to educate organizational leaders regarding the range and depth of resources necessary for EHR implementation, ongoing user support, product troubleshooting and vendor communications, and negotiations post implementation.
End of the day, it is the EHR vendors who are the experts and who have the widest understanding of the many customers to whom they have sold their products. They are the people who have seen the failures and the successes of an EHR. One would expect them to share this knowledge with potential customers so that more organizations are successful the first time and they can then tout these successes as part of their sales process.

Choosing the right EHR software could be difficult no matter who you are and what your goals are. Before you make the final decision, irrespective of the category you belong to, you have to understand the ultimate goal of the practice. Every practice has its own unique goals and once that goal is understood, finalizing on an EHR becomes a cakewalk.

Many who have failed in EHR implementation projects usually do so because they miss out on the ultimate goal of their practice. To make sure your EHR works fine, you should have things in place like the patient data, approval, service documentation, codes, fees, claims requirements etc. Bringing all this in place needs a lot of work and requires the entire organization to involve and understand their roles. When everything works in sync is when the EHR implementation succeeds. And last but not the least — be sure to test cautiously before going live.

8 Reasons Why Electronic Medical Billing is Inevitable

September 14th, 2016 Posted by News 0 comments on “8 Reasons Why Electronic Medical Billing is Inevitable”

The debate on whether technology has eased our work or added to the woes is a topic which has no definite answer. In the healthcare industry, the jury is still out on whether IT advances are helping practices to achieve more with whatever they have or are slowing down the process.

In the healthcare industry, a big part of the confusion happens in the area of medical billing as it is the common link between the patient, physician, payer, and pharmacy, among others. This complexity necessitated electronic billing.

Through electronic medical billing, practices and patients can browse through their medical bills which are submitted electronically. Moreover, they can easily follow up with the health insurance companies to receive imbursement for medical services delivered by a healthcare practice.

There are a number of reasons why you should take advantage of an electronic medical billing service. However, we have tried to list out just the top 8 reasons to explain why electronic medical billing is an obvious choice.

1. Green option – With electronic billing, you definitely stop using paper and save more trees. Hence, making it the green option.

2. No mess management – Every time you are in search of a file, you have to browse through a hundred other irrelevant papers. Even if the files are sorted in a particular order like date, location or alphabets, you still waste some time finding the relevant file. When your bills are on the electronic version, you don’t have to have any of your data in the hard copy format. All you have to do is type a search word and click. It’s a no-nonsense management option.

3. Unconscious process – Practices should spend more time increasing their knowledge about their patients and the industry. With electronic medical billing system, the process is such that a patient’s data is linked automatically to the billing system. This saves time and eliminates any room for confusion and duplication.

4. No room for erroneous medical bills – While a number of health insurance companies delay the disbursement of insurance amount, many practices take a lot of time to decide if a particular treatment is covered by the insurance or not. When you have electronic medical billing system linked to your EMR software, you can easily check the insurance eligibility of the patient in real-time. So no more erroneous bills.

5. Create precise reports – Making mistakes is human, but machines rarely make mistakes, unless there is a bug within the system. The reports generated through electronic medical billing will be precise and accurate. In case of any doubt, you can even acquire data in the form of charts which could be linked to the accounting system.

6. Makes it affordable – Paper is more expensive than electronic. When you go online, you don’t just save on your paper expenses but also on the manpower. An electronic version needs very few staff and the data management is also eased.

7. Template oriented – An electronic medical billing helps practices focus on the patients more than anything else. As the data is available with just a find and click button, physicians can spend less time understanding each case. The templates also help in updating the data with minimal intrusion.

8. Personalization – Each patient’s medical history is different from the other. Although with paper bills tracking is difficult, with the electronic version you can personalize each patient history based on their personal details, hometown, medical history, insurance policy, sensitivity and other vital information.

Many payers are now requiring electronic filing of claims. Pretty soon it will not be possible to continue using paper to file claims with payers.

Electronic medical billing systems enable physicians to spend more time understanding their patients and the required treatment. It brings down the time spent on unproductive work. It also keeps a physician updated about the trending topics of healthcare industry and the changing laws associated to patient’s insurance.

Electronic medical billing is empowering the healthcare industry across the globe. More healthcare professionals are using electronic medical billing systems, improving the chances that payers will actually pay for their services faster.
