It is old news that doctors are bending over backwards to meet evolving standards and regulations. It is a battle of patients versus bottomline. So, you have doctors staring into computer screens and trying to remember the nearest code to the patient’s ailment, while attending to patients.
To complete tasks on time a physician should, ideally work, 20 hours a day, if not more ! With an increasing number of newly insured patients and pressure to meet compliance deadlines, to smartle resources is to commit professional kamikaze.
When 8 hours are barely enough !
Converting medical procedures into billable data is not half as easy as it sounds. Medical codes are regularly revised and insurer regulations are not constant either. In a dynamic and fast-paced industry like healthcare, it is important that physicians roll with the punches. Even as doctors rush between appointments, there are medical billing chores to handle.
Most, small and medium sized medical practices have a small in-house billing team, who may not be able to cope with the enormous of volume of work involved. It is not just billing that takes a hit.
Due to limited manpower and resources, important workflow processes such as appointment scheduling and eligibility verification, are not given much time or thought. As only so much can be in eight hours.
