Practice Management Workflow Feature to Optimize your Billing

One of the most important qualities of a successful practice is effective practice management. Clinics often struggle with creating a solid line of communication between their electronic health record (EHR) company and their billing service, leading to stress, confusion, and financial loss.  One way to remedy this is to utilize an EHR that also provides Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) and billing services.  The advantage of using a billing service that is also your EHR is that billers are intimately familiar with both the billing and medical side of the software, and there is zero time needed for training or implementation.

PrognoCIS’s billing module is a financial management tool called Task Assignment designed to facilitate communication between billers and clinical staff.  This allows billers, who may or may not be in-house, to communicate with staff regarding insurance claims, which may have errors or lack of information. Not only does this ease pressure on staff, but it also makes sure all claims are accounted for and actionable. Here we go through the various steps needed to use the Task Assignment Feature.

How It Works

When a patient is seen by the clinic, insurance information is captured and a claim is made. As many of us know, claims are often filled out incompletely which leads to the inability to process a claim. This is where Task Assignment comes in; billers are able to assign tasks to various clinical staff and update them on incomplete tasks. Billers may select from a drop-down menu to assign clinical staff to tasks.

Billers are then able to assign an action to specific clinical staff.

On the EHR side, clinical staff receives these tasks in real-time, no matter the location. This is especially useful if the practice uses an external biller.

Effective Billing for an Effective Practice

All in all, the Task Assignment Feature creates a system that allows for easily accessible and documentable communication. Claims are never lost between billers and staff; the claims are always on hand and actionable.
