Integrated practice management & EHR databases
Data entry error is another common reason for errors in the coding and billing processes. If you are working with a disjointed and disconnected web of multiple different software systems from different vendors, your team is probably transferring a lot of data back and forth between these systems. That could mean they have to manually pull information out of the EHR or practice management system to transfer to your medical coding and billing software, or it might mean downloading information from one system and uploading it to another. APIs that connect disparate systems can also break down.
These patchwork practices make it harder to ensure that the information going into each claim is accurate. If there is even one small error—like an incorrect patient social security number, a problem with their insurance ID, or missing information from the EHR—it will lead to a denied claim. With AdvancedMD you get a fully integrated system that transfers information seamlessly at each step of the patient journey, from scheduling to the patient encounter with your psychiatry providers, then to billing and coding. The result is more accurate claims and fewer errors that would delay payment.
