Ambulatory Surgical Center Billing & Coding Software
ASC medical coding and billing software is one of the most important parts of a practice management solution for independent centers.
An integrated practice management and medical coding and billing software system can help you manage rising expenses and falling reimbursement rates, along with the increasingly complex billing procedures from CMS and commercial payers. Make your entire revenue cycle management faster and easier, with fewer headaches and delays in getting paid.
There are tens of thousands of medical codes, and between the changes and updates to CPT and HCPCS codes, your ASC billing gets more complex every year. The sooner you get claims submitted and processed, the faster you get paid, so the survival of your ASC depends on fast, accurate, and simple billing processes.
AdvancedMD is designed specifically for small and independent medical practices, including ambulatory surgical centers. Our medical billing and coding software helps you sort through the thousands of codes to find the ones that you need to bill. With predictive technologies that help you find the most accurate and up-to-date billing you won’t have to worry about whether your claims will be rejected for simple errors or outdated codes.
Efficient and effective RCM is at the center of any successful ASC. The medical coding and billing software you use can help you get paid faster with fewer errors or denied claims. With AdvancedMD you get a complete solution to manage every step of the claims process efficiently, even for a small ASC without a lot of medical coding and billing staff.
Our fully integrated software suite stores all the information in a single database—patient demographics, payer information, and treatment details—so you can easily find and pull accurate claims data into the billing system. Your team never has to manually upload, download, enter, or transfer information into the system to initiate billing. This saves time and money, and limits errors that lead to claims denial.
With AdvancedMD you can:
There are more than 10,000 CPT codes and almost as many Level II HCPCS codes, but only a fraction of these codes are used in most ASCs. The challenge for a billing department is making sure that they can find and use the most updated codes, achieving the highest level of specificity based on the patient’s care without over-coding. For small ASCs or those with limited billing and coding staff it can be a lot of work to keep up with the constant changes in these codes and ensure that bills go out quickly and accurately.
AdvancedMD helps coding staff with customizable features like “quick find” lists for the most commonly used CPT and HCPCS codes, including global billing codes. We update our system constantly to ensure that the options available in the software are the latest codes. You can even customize your coding and billing workflows by payer to account for nuances in what payers prefer or need to see on claims submissions.
CMS has specific rules and guidelines for claims submissions. With the number of Medicare beneficiaries increasing each year it’s important that you follow these guidelines exactly to get paid quickly. For many ASCs Medicare claims represent a large portion of total claims and are an essential revenue stream. We have built-in alerts and tools to help you identify errors or flag potential issues with CMS claims prior to submission to avoid denials and extra work to resubmit a claim later.
AdvancedMD offers comprehensive reporting capabilities to help you stay on top of your ASC revenue cycle management. Set up recurring reports that are customized to show the most important and relevant information to different groups of key stakeholders—leadership, board members, surgeons, and administrative staff. Reports auto-generate and go straight to your stakeholders’ inboxes.
Reports are presented in an easy-to-read format so busy surgeons, executives, and administrators can quickly digest the information, and use that information to make better business and patient care decisions. You can customize the information and presentation of any report. Use one of our predesigned templates for reporting on state-specific data, MIPS and MACRA reporting, and benchmarking, or create exactly what you need from scratch. Our helpful team can provide support and guidance on how to create new reports.
You can also set up permissions and access control using our security features and eyes-only settings so you can control who sees what financial information within your ASC practice.
