Feature release 08/11/2022: Billing module’s new search option

August 11, 2022

Dear provider!

 

Recent changes to the U.S. healthcare system have brought about a variety of new challenges for providers and patients alike. Numerous elements of the healthcare reform, such as the adoption of time-consuming regular revisions to billing laws and regulations, may result in revenue losses for providers across the country. U.S. medical providers leave over $125 billion in uncollected revenue each year due to failure to stay current on medical billing rules.

 

EMSOW always strives for better and easier work. With this week’s update, the Billing module features a new search option, which you can check out below. Also, we’ve added a couple of new useful features to the Data Import module, the Physician Portal and the Technologist Portal.

    Dear practitioner!

     

    Healthcare is one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors of the American economy. Americans spend almost $8,000 annually per capita on healthcare, and a significant portion of that sum is spent on health insurance.

     

    This week EMSOW has made an update to the Billing module, which makes it possible to see the recipient of the most recent insurance claim in the End-of-month report. Below you can also find another useful feature for the mobile version.

      July 27, 2022

      Dear healthcare provider!

       

      COVID-19 created a greater demand for virtual and home-based care. House-based care has expanded more mobile imaging options for patients, such as the first mobile lung cancer screening program in the country, because it isn't yet able to deliver hospital-like surroundings or technology into the home. To provide radiological care at home, more radiologists are growing their mobile practices.

       

      Since the industry is growing, every week EMSOW creates useful features for our clients to work comfortably and successfully.

       

      You are welcome to check all the updates below.

        Feature release 07/14/2022: Improvements in invoice sorting

        July 14, 2022

        Dear practitioner!

         

        What can healthcare organizations do to reduce billing compliance risks in 2022?

        Educate. Make sure providers and coders stay informed as billing rules and regulations change.

        Predict. Expand “revenue intelligence” and predictive analytics tools to proactively catch billing errors and avoid first-pass denial rates.

        Monitor. Meaningful audits and analysis go beyond error detection with true insights into the causes of errors and the tools to correct them.

        Manage. It’s not enough to audit if no changes are made. Implement corrective action and follow-up.

         

        As for EMSOW, we always strive for making your work easier. This week we’ve made an improvement in the way of sorting of invoice items, now you’ll be able to choose the most convenient way for you.

        There is also another useful update which you can find below.

          July 8, 2022

          Dear healthcare provider!

           

          Medical billing is one of the most important elements of a healthcare system that ensures that information and data are properly tracked, and there is a regular flow of information between healthcare providers, insurance companies and reporting tools. Medical practices must integrate billing software to ensure that claims are correctly processed and submitted, payments are collected in time, and all important data points are properly stored for efficient analytics and reporting.

           

          This week EMSOW made an update to its Billing section, which will make it easier to integrate EMSOW data with external software based on accession numbers.

              Feature release 05/25/2022: Updated “Invoice aging by month” report

              May 25, 2022

              Dear provider!

               

              Invoices are an important document for any business. Sellers need to issue invoices to customers regularly in order to get paid in time and maintain the cash flow of the business. Each invoice consists of the details about the purchased goods or services, quantities, price, date of delivery, delivery method, and payment methods. Since health services are typically provided on a continuous basis, invoice aging is an important part of financial reporting.

               

              This week, EMSOW has made an update to the “Invoice aging by month” report. Now it allows you to see the referring facility address.

              Five ways to eliminate duplicated patient records

              May 24, 2022

              Most healthcare providers have issues with duplicated health records. They cause excessive time and effort because a lot of information has to be entered twice. But the real problem is that duplicated records are not always the exact copies of each other. Instead, information about one patient is kept in several separate documents. Even during the coronavirus pandemic, duplicates have been leading to poor patient identification – hampering the response rate and patient outcomes. Another pitfall is associated with HIPAA compliance since duplicated records increase the chance of ePHI loss.

              AHIMA has stated that 20% of the medical records in healthcare systems with multiple facilities are duplicates, and they can cost up to $40 million for any healthcare provider. What's more, while 72% said they work on mitigating duplicate records on a weekly basis, the researchers noted that there...

                Feature release 05/18/2022: Enhanced financial analysis module

                May 18, 2022

                Greetings to all!

                 

                The medical billing department is the key to the continued profitability of any medical practice. Bills must be created on a timely basis, submitted properly to various insurance companies and government entities, and followed-up regularly to ensure prompt payment is received. Solid billing practices lead to a better cash flow and improved Revenue Cycle Management, which, in turn, ensures financial stability of your company and allows you to keep the practice running without worrying about money.

                 

                EMSOW strives to make it easier for your billing department to work. In the latest release, we enhanced our financial analysis feature and added an advanced option to override referring facility information in insurance claims.

                  As we know, there are numerous benefits of using a PACS in radiology and below you will find the top 3:

                  • Improved Management of Patient Data. PACS makes it easy for physicians to store data and manage patient reports in a better way.
                  • Economically Viable. A PACS is much more economical and this system is entirely computer-based, which means that you can easily view images and reports through the software on any digital device.
                  • Complete Range of Tools for Enhanced Visualization. PACS allows images to be zoomed in and visualized in a better way. There are numerous tools available in the system that can be used to interpret and study data.

                   

                  This week EMSOW created a new PACS Destinations module and made some improvements to ease your work with PACS. From now on, PACS destinations can now be added and edited. You can find all the details below as well as one more useful feature.

                      For many practitioners, being paid on time and appropriately is a chief concern. Electronic claim submission is one tool practitioners are increasingly using to facilitate the claim reimbursement process.

                            Have you heard that global healthcare spending could reach over $10 trillion by the end of 2022? Aging and growing populations, higher rates of chronic health conditions, and exponential but costly advances in digital technologies will continue to push global healthcare expenditures upward.

                             

                            Realizing how crucial the healthcare field is, EMSOW improves your workflow every week.

                             

                            This week we’ve made an update to the Invoices module, which you can check out below.

                              February 16, 2022

                              Greetings to all!

                               

                              Health insurance remains a relevant and politicized topic in the United States. Let’s have a look at Health Insurance Statistics 2021:

                              • 4% of Americans were uninsured in 2018, thus leading to staggering health care costs in case of a medical emergency;
                              • On a yearly basis, roughly 4% of uninsured Americans are forced to declare bankruptcy due to overwhelming health care costs;
                              • 40%–50% of US residents rely on employer health insurance;
                              • New York is known for having the highest health insurance rates, whereas New Mexico has the lowest;
                              • In the US, it’s estimated that insurance fraud leads to costs of over $80 billion on a yearly basis.

                               

                              EMSOW understands the difficulties you can face with, that’s why every week we update certain modules of our platform for you to work with it in a convenient way. With the latest update, the Billing module offers you the new search options that allow you to search studies that do not include a specific insurance or insurance group.

                                Dear practitioner!

                                 

                                As we move forward in the healthcare industry, there will be more pressure and attention put on physician fee schedules. Payors and consumers will continue to put pressure on fee schedules to reduce costs, making healthcare more accessible to them. Given the current healthcare climate, it is believed that fee schedules will continue to be a contentious topic of conversation.

                                 

                                Meanwhile EMSOW makes it easier and more comfortable to use the platform and its Fee Schedules module as well. This week we’ve made more fee schedule formats available for import.

                                  As the population grows, the importance of the healthcare system intensifies particularly in times of any global pandemic like one caused by Coronavirus, which has put tremendous pressure on the capacity and capability of health institutions and healthcare providers.

                                    As you know, fee schedules play a crucial role in the realm of medical billing practices. Claim rejections, denials, and other delays can occur as a result of inefficient or inadequate fee schedule methods, disrupting an otherwise regular revenue stream.

                                    EMSOW’s latest update in the Fee Schedules module allows you to quickly find all the necessary fee information to make sure you bill payers correctly.

                                    In addition, below you can find a couple of updates that we’ve made to other modules that can make your work with EMSOW easier!

                                      Greetings to everyone!

                                       

                                      There are various reasons why companies should keep employee records on file. The primary reason is that it is mandated by law. Companies must have financial documentation on hand in the case of a lawsuit or an IRS audit, in addition to having an employee's basic employment dates and information readily available.

                                       

                                      EMSOW’s new feature makes it easier for our practitioners to keep and find all the necessary information.

                                        It goes without saying that filing claims electronically can offer a number of benefits, such as: minimizing disruptions to your cash flow, tracking claim status, increasing accuracy and cut down on claim rejections, cutting down on paperwork and decreasing overhead costs and staff time.

                                         

                                        To make electronic claims more comfortable for you to use, you are welcome to use EMSOW’s Billing module, that allows healthcare providers send claims electronically via EDI.

                                          It is widely known that the most successful medical practices don’t reach their position in the industry without paying close attention to all aspects of their revenue cycle. In any case, it's crucial that your practice implements a system that speeds up the billing process while minimizing errors and adhering to the most recent privacy and other governmental regulations.

                                           

                                          EMSOW’s Invoice Module has become more comfortable for you to use as it allows healthcare providers to directly bill their clients. Now it is possible to see the dates when checks were posted and the report will display all posting dates, with each payment represented by a separate row.

                                            Dear practitioner!

                                            Do you know the difference between Write-Offs and Write-Downs? The difference is just a matter of degree. A write-down is performed in accounting to reduce the value of an asset to offset a loss or expense. A write-down becomes a write-off if the entire balance of the asset is eliminated and removed from the books altogether.

                                             

                                            To make Write off more comfortable for you, you are welcome to use new EMSOW’s feature in the Post payment from facility window that makes posting a payment from a facility more flexible.

                                             

                                            Below you can also find some updates that we made to EMSOW’s billing rules.

                                              Feature release 11/10/2021: Improved Patients module

                                              November 10, 2021

                                              Dear practitioner!

                                               

                                              There is a constantly increasing rise in litigation in modern medical practice. A strong emphasis is placed on good record keeping as an integral part of patient care and a clinician’s legal defense.

                                              To improve your record keeping, you are welcome to use EMSOW’s Patients module that now features a quick tool to check patient’s procedures summary.

                                               

                                              If you are not with EMSOW yet, you are welcome to book a FREE online demo here!

                                               

                                              [#22741] Study groups filter in “Submit statements” window

                                              With this update, we have added the Study groups search option to the Submit statements window in Billing:

                                              This option will help you find statements by study group (e.g., ultrasound, X-ray, visits, surgical).

                                                Updated EMSOW’s invoicing

                                                November 4, 2021

                                                Dear practitioner!

                                                It is well known that a well-designed invoice that covers all the required information makes a good impression to your clients. To ensure timely clearance of the invoice, it is necessary to find out your client’s payment run and align your payment due date to it. If you have staged payments, you can agree in advance the dates that your invoices will be raised. And always remember to double-check the invoice for accuracy before you send it!

                                                 

                                                To make invoicing comfortable both for you and your clients, you are welcome to use EMSOW’s Invoices module that allows healthcare providers to directly bill their clients. For example, if you run a portable X‑ray business and want to send a bill to a nursing home you service for Part A patients, EMSOW has you covered!

                                                 

                                                Below you can find a couple of updates that we made to EMSOW’s invoicing, as well as a small convenience update to our auto-fill feature that will allow you to skip the preview step when you are dealing with hundreds (or thousands!) claims you need to auto-fill.

                                                Feature release 10/28/2021: Billing enhancements

                                                October 28, 2021

                                                Greetings one and all!

                                                Did you know that patients are advised to save all their medical bills and statements? If they get a bill from their provider before they get their Health Benefits Statement, they should hold on to it. When their Health Benefits Statement arrives, it will outline what has been paid for by their Health Insurance and confirm what they owe.

                                                To keep your patients aware of their bills, you are welcome to use EMSOW’s patient statements.

                                                Below is a small improvement we’ve made to this module as well as a couple of other billing enhancements:

                                                The Checks module (Billing → Checks in the main EMSOW menu) now shows the date of service range for each check:

                                                We have also added the Date of service search option so you can easily find the necessary check by a specific da...
