Physicians and healthcare professionals spend a lot of time griping about billing…
Perhaps as much time as the billing itself.
And who can blame them?
Physicians and other healthcare professionals typically spend at least a few hours a week on medical billing and associated administrative tasks.
As tedious as it can be though, it is a critical and mandatory aspect of operating a medical practice.
By prioritizing thorough and timely billing, physicians can be better assured of their own timely payment for the services they provide.
This consists of physicians, nurses and practice staff filling out the necessary paperwork time after time and submitting it; and, maintaining files for all the documents.
The fact is medical billing is probably never going to go away.
But technology has gotten to the point where it can be done and submitted quicker, to the benefit of healthcare professionals and patients.
But with the relatively new web-based and ‘cloud’ billing technology, when physicians bill the process can be a lot more seamless and fast.
Online systems like ClinicAid.ca can recall all the coding, patient and diagnostic information, save it and submit it in mere minutes.
And, the billing process can be completed from anywhere; physicians don’t have to be ‘in the office’ to retrieve and enter billing data for a patient. It’s a ‘can’t lose’ option for healthcare professionals, especially with today’s time-stressed practices.
Less time billing translates into more patients who can be seen by a medical team.
That likely means more quality time that medical team has with those patients, as well as a potential increase in billings overall.
So embrace ‘the cloud’ and free up more time away from billing!
