Are you or your staff having to enter every patient into your EHR program and then again into EZClaim? There is an easier way! Integrating your programs will put an end to duplicate data entry, saving your practice time and money!
So, what exactly is an interface and how does it work? An interface is a way for two programs to share information. For EZClaim clients, the interface can be set up to share data from your EHR program to EZClaim. Your EHR can give you specifics on how to send the data to EZClaim.
In EZClaim you will have an opportunity to review the file prior to saving the data. When you complete the import process, your claims will be created, and libraries will be updated. In addition to creating your claims for each visit, an interface can also create Physician/Facility library entries, as well as Payer library entries, and create new or update existing patient accounts.
If you are working with one of our partner EHRs (Visit our Partner List) the integration between programs can be set up quickly and easily. Since the process varies slightly depending on the EHR you are using, time to complete the integration request will vary.
If you are not using a partner EHR, you may still be able to integrate with EZClaim.
Following are some options:
- In our Online Help File the format types and specifications are available for you to share with your EHR vendor. If they can provide a file in one of the required formats you will be able to import your data.
- You may consider using a third party to write a custom interface for you. If you would like more information on this, contact EZClaim and we will be happy to provide information on consultants who are familiar with the EZClaim platform.
If you have questions, please submit them via email to email@example.com so a technician can review them and get back with you.
Medical billing technology is always changing, and usually much quicker than one expects. While your current processes may be working for you, there just may be something better available to reduce staff time and increase your revenues. The thing is, technology has made huge strides in the medical billing industry in recent years, offering a number of ways to send and receive data faster, while still protecting sensitive patient information.
So, over the next several posts, we will explore different features technology can offer to increase your efficiency as well as your ‘bottom line‘. We will consider how your Electronic Medical Record (EMR) can communicate with your Practice Management (billing) software, the key features to look for in your Practice Management software, and how it can communicate with other programs, such as Clearinghouses and statement vendors.
This Medical Billing Technology Series will include:
- Validation vs. Scrubbing
- Rejection vs. Denial
- Integrating With an EMR
- Integrating With a Clearinghouse
- Basics of ANSI/EDI Reports
- Patient Collection Policy/Credit Card Processing
- Using Templates
- Is Integrated Eligibility Worth It?
- Statement Options
- Selecting a Practice Management System (Ease of Use/Access; Training; and Support)
Now, not every office will benefit from the same “bells and whistles,” and there are so many options out there. It can be overwhelming. Chances are though, your office could benefit from considering some updates, and some may not even cost you at all!
EZClaim suggests that you take a fresh look at the workflows and processes that you have in place today, and start thinking about the tasks that are wasting time or that are causing delays in collecting payments (from both patients and insurance). These insights just may help you create a positive change to your workflow and your revenues!
