Improve cooperation with your rendering provider!

December 2, 2020

EMSOW’s Rendering provider portal has become a go-to tool for many physician assistants and nurse practitioners who travel to patients to provide consults. This week, we have added a new feature to facilitate your collaboration with rendering providers. They will love this new tool! Please see the details below.

[#21035] Narrow study selection in Rendering Portal

With the latest update, you can now link a rendering provider to study groups related to them. This will make it easier for a rendering provider to pick the necessary study in Rendering Portal by excluding all non-relevant studies from the Study field.

To assign a study group to a rendering provider, go to Setup → Personnel → Rendering Providers and double-click into the necessary provider. Open the Study groups tab and select the desired study groups:

How to maximize revenue by using X-ray transportation codes?

December 1, 2020

Today, we're going to discuss x-ray transportation codes. Portable diagnostic equipment is gaining popularity. These machines are reliable and affordable and they help businesses cut office service expenditures besides. Moreover, mobile diagnostic services are often more convenient for patients than scheduled visits and in some cases are the only way to reach patients. However, there is one issue – transportation costs.

X-ray transportation codes

Mobile imaging operators use vans or other vehicles to transport their imaging equipment. Sometimes they need to travel many miles and spend hours getting to a site. There are no problems if they can collect transportation fees directly from their patients, but when it comes to insurance reimbursement, issues may occur. Nevertheless, in some cases, the transportation costs of mobile imaging operators can be covered.

Medicare has contributed to solving this problem by ...

            Many imaging professionals consider that all PACS providers offer the same.

              Sending X-ray images for reading through Teleradiology Solutions

              October 21, 2020

              Teleradiology is the transfer of medical images via information technologies. It has a long history (much older than the Internet). But before the 1990s it was not widely used because of the expense, inefficiency, and poor image quality. Today, the development of IT has reversed this trend. Now teleradiology guarantees an increase in imaging procedures by up to 6–12% annually.

              If you deal with X-rays, ultrasounds, or CTs, you surely know about DICOM, PACS, and RIS, and utilize these tools in your practice. These means of image transfer are quite common. However, their convenience and security vary considerably...

                [#20754] Arrange diagnosis codes on claims in the same order as they are entered

                Previously, EMSOW did not keep the order of ICD-10 codes that were entered when scheduling a procedure, which caused problems with billing for certain procedures that require a certain diagnosis order. From now on, the codes will be arranged just as entered initially!

                For example, here’s a case that was coded via Processing:

                This week we have put out seven updates improving EMSOW’s billing, dispatching, and task management functionality. That’s what you’ll find in the latest version of EMSOW.

                The latest version of EMSOW’s Dispatch module allows you to export the necessary data to an Excel spreadsheet. Click the Export button on the module's toolbar and you will see a pop-up window where you can choose what data needs to be exported. And finally, click OK to get your report!

                [#20758] Improvements in the Referring Contracts module
                We have upgraded the data grid in the Referring Contracts module – now it shows contract terms and discounts, thus sparing you from having to double-click into each contract to see the contract details.

                Note that the exam reason text can be mapped to our report templates as well, so that your reading doctors can avoid searching for the exam reason throughout the system.

                    The painless way of sharing ePHI with your patients

                    September 14, 2020

                    Today, a growing number of patients wish to have access to their health information. There are several reasons for that. They may need to change a doctor, learn a second opinion or just want to get control of their health records and feel independent of their providers. Whatever the reason, the Right to be Informed and the Right to Information are provided by law and the norms of professional ethics. Therefore, medical businesses should give patients access to their info. However, there are some transferability and privacy issues.

                    PHI

                     

                    So, what are the ways of sharing medical info with patients?

                    Addressing a doctor or a facility directly is traditional, and, probably, the most troublesome way. Imagine that you need to get your records from a doctor you haven’t seen for months or even years. You’ll have to visit the facility and ask the front desk officer to retrieve your history. T...

                                Have you ever experienced problems with unreasonably long collection times, high study interpretation and software expenses, inefficient workflow management, coding, and billing difficulties?

                                For more than ten years, EMSOW has been servicing imaging facilities to deliver a professional medical platform that covers all their daily tasks, from simple PACS and DICOM to automatic claim generation.

                                Below are some powerful updates aimed at improving your workflow management and billing. With EMSOW, your coding and billing processes can be as flexible and straightforward as you want. The latest version of the system allows you to make billing even more adjusted to your needs, thanks to a new ability to bill 3rd party organizations, such as hospice providers.

                                If you are not yet with us, we would be happy to show you our system so that you could compare our offerings to the platform you are currently using and the price you are paying.

                                  Along with state-of-the-art PACS, dispatching, and scheduling, EMSOW has a built-in billing system that allows you to check eligibility, generate claims, and automatically post payments. Many of our customers use it to cut software costs, eliminate double data entry, and streamline their workflow.

                                  The latest version of EMSOW can help you extend the range of healthcare facilities you serve in terms of eligibility checking. Please see the detailed description below. If you’re not yet our customer, check out our website to learn more about how we can reduce your expenses and find affordable reads in your state.

                                    Dear imaging providers!

                                    EMSOW delivers full-cycle exam processing services, from dispatching and PACS to image reading at a very affordable price and billing. However, in the rapidly developing imaging industry, our customers demand more features to optimize their processes, especially now, when their businesses are recovering from the COVID-19 crisis.

                                    This week we have added some improvements to facilitate your communication with your referring doctors and facilities. This can be done either within our platform or through other healthcare software, because one of EMSOW’s key features is its interoperability with other systems through the HL7 protocol. Below please see our latest updates in more detail. If you would like to learn more about our services or find credentialed reading physicians in your state, schedule a demo with our representative.

                                      This week we’ve been working hard to facilitate the imaging workflow for reading radiologists, billing specialists, and nursing home providers. An updated insurance crossover option, enhanced functionality for professional component claims, and more intuitive experience, that’s what you’ll find in the latest version of EMSOW.

                                      If you’re not our customer yet, but would like to know how we can optimize your medical imaging processes, reduce costs, find new customers, or reading physicians, just smash the link to our calendar!

                                      We have changed the default settings for insurance crossover detection. Now the "Use response to detect crossover" option is set by default. When EMSOW receives an ERA file from an insurance company that automatically forwards secondary claims to additional payers, it can detect if the crossover transfer has been done by analyzing the EDI 835 message. To change the crossover setting, go to Setup > Insurances, double-click an insurance, Select Yes,

                                        Staying HIPAA compliant with Direct Messaging

                                        July 6, 2020

                                        Previously, we discussed tools for staying HIPAA compliant when sharing electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). Now let’s focus on Direct Messaging, also known as Secure Direct Messaging or merely Direct, because, unlike SFTP or VPNs, it is intended for the use by clinicians only.

                                        Direct is a part of a federal project for medical information standardization, which started in 2010. Therefore, it is undoubtedly HIPAA compliant, which is crucial for practice. However, it is still in its development and has its pros and cons.

                                        At first thought, Direct Messaging is quite similar to common email systems, but there are some key differences. First, it can be used only by its specific users. To connect with another Direct user, you must hold an address that looks like, for example, [username]@direct.[facility].com. Therefore, you will be unable to send a message from, say, yahoo.com (in this case you’ll get a notification). On the one hand, such “closeness” may seem inconvenient, because it considerably limits your ability to contact different ...

                                            Finally, there’s good news! About 40% of our customers who were forced to put their business on hold due to the pandemic are back, and the others are on their way. Just during the past week, they uploaded to EMSOW 30% more studies compared to the week before. By the way, about a quarter of those were read by radiologists from the MDW marketplace, our trusted partners. Thank you for staying with us!

                                            We keep our fingers crossed for you, but that’s obviously not enough to overcome the crisis. We are working as hard as never before to ensure your success.

                                              COVID-19 outbreak led to a nation-wide business slowdown, especially in the diagnostic imaging industry. We have received hundreds of emails from our existing and prospective customers, who would like to make their companies mobile and paperless.

                                              EMSOW has been around for 10 years, delivering full-cycle exam processing services to portable imaging companies, nursing home providers and teleradiologists, helping them decrease their turnaround time by up to 60% and finding trusted radiologists to read their exams as cheap as they never paid before (down to 70% of their normal rates).

                                              As always, we’re committed to your success, so if you would like to save your money on image reading and exam processing, please get in touch with us and let us know how we can help you to keep your imaging business moving forward.

                                                Of all of the business types affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, portable imaging companies, nursing home providers, and radiology services are among the hardest hit. In addition to companies reducing their volumes, there's still a high level of general anxiety around the risk of visiting healthcare facilities.

                                                While we at EMSOW® are committed to providing you with all the services you need to optimize your imaging workflow, save your turnaround time and money on reads and PACS, we also understand the need for flexibility based on your individual circumstances. To make sure you can work with confidence, we’re offering flexible setup waivers to startups and small businesses.

                                                  No one could have predicted how difficult this year has been. The imaging industry faces a pandemic and is still adjusting to its implications. Many businesses did not survive it, and we face an unprecedented decline.

                                                  All this makes us work even harder, and our developers are doing their best to improve the functionality of our platform so that your diagnostic business could overcome any new challenges.

                                                    HIPAA compliance is an existential issue for medical businesses, especially if they use special-purpose software and mobile applications (e.g. mobile imaging operators). HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), adopted in 1996, includes a set of legal requirements for protecting sensitive patient information from unauthorized access or leakage. Medical institutions, their staff, and software they use must meet the criteria of physical, network, and process security. Today we will review a few common security tools used to protect data exchange in imaging diagnostics.

                                                    TLS (Transport Layer Security) is an encryption protocol that provides secure data communication between network nodes. It is widely used in web-based applications, as well as email and instant messengers. The primary function of this protocol is to prevent unauthorized access and traffic analyzin...
