It is a web-based platform that does not require local installation. It covers all the tasks of your imaging business, makes things simple, and saves your money.

                                Tired of manually tagging studies after checking if a patient has met their deductible? Then this update is for you! Now, when you check eligibility for Medicare Part B, EMSOW can also check if the deductible has been met, and tag the study with an appropriate tag (e.g., “2021 ded met”).

                                To set up this feature, open your billing connector settings (follow Setup → Billing → Billing Connectors in the main EMSOW menu). First, you need to enable the Tag exams as deductible met for “Medicare Part B” insurance ...

                                        Medical billing matters. That's why lately, we’ve been focusing on our Billing module to make your imaging workflow even more straightforward. Today, EMSOW matches the requirements of a standalone medical billing system.

                                        The difference is that EMSOW’s billing is integrated with PACS, DICOM, scheduling/dispatching tools and requires no installation. It covers all your needs, makes things simple, and saves your money.

                                          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:

                                          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.

                                                    However, there's something that makes EMSOW entirely different. On our platform, you can get your images read by board-certified radiologists licensed in your state. As for standard features, such as cloud storage, dispatching, and DICOM viewer, we improve them on a weekly basis based on our customers’ feedback – so if you would like to build an optimal software suite for your business, ask us how!

                                                    This week, we have updated our draft reporting functionality (please see the description below). If you would like to simplify and optimize your imaging workflow and cut your costs, check out our website!
