                        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.

                                  October 30, 2020

                                  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!

                                  Did you know that EMSOW can automatically fill in your report template with what was entered in the patient’s previous study? This can save you a lot of time when it comes to filling out patient consultation reports.

                                  Now we’ve decided to go further and given our users an ability to choose whether to pull...

                                    This week we have made a few improvements to enhance the efficiency of your workflow and billing.

                                    With this update, you can send electronic claims without providing a payer address in the insurance department settings. To make use of this new feature, double-click into the necessary billing connector (Setup → Billing → Billing Connectors) and enable the allow sending claims without a payer address checkbox.

                                    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...

                                      This week we have rolled out five updates to extend EMSOW’s DICOM and billing functionality and make our platform even more intuitive and user-friendly!

                                      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.

                                      [#20668] Export data from the Dispatch module
                                      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.

                                      This week we have improved EMSOW’s PACS, billing, DICOM, and task management functionality. Six updates, all requested by our customers! Thank you for helping us become better. We’re here to power up your business.

                                      [#20749] Import of exam reasons from DICOM

                                      We ❤️ interfacing and have helped many teleradiology companies connect with their clients via DICOM. This small update extends your options for DICOM tag mapping: now you can automatically populate the Reason for exam field in EMSOW from DICOM tag 0040,1400 (RequestedProcedureComments).

                                      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.

                                        EMSOW would like to wish you and your families a happy and safe Labor Day. In observance of the federal holiday, our support and sales departments will be closed on Monday (September 7, 2020). However, all our systems will be up and operating as usual – and below are a couple of new things we have added this week.

                                        Many of our customers limit their use of EMSOW to the cloud PACS (which includes a zero-install DICOM viewer, as well as built-in dispatch and scheduling capabilities). We would like you to explore our state-of-the-art billing module that covers all the revenue cycle management tasks – from checking eligibility and claim generation to automated posting of ERAs and direct Part A billing.

                                        In the latest version of EMSOW, we put out several improvements to power up your billing – please see details below. And if you are not a billing user yet, feel free to get in touch to learn more and schedule a live demo!

                                          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...

Open an order in the Processing module, then click History.  The “Modify” status points now will display details on what exactly was modified when you hover your mouse over “Details.” For example, you can see if someone changed a study description, as well as the identifiers of the previous and the current study type.

Image interpretation by a trusted radiologist licensed in your state is also a great opportunity we offer.

                                              The latest updates will help you include discounts in your contracts, encourage your personnel to enter complete patient information and track TAT more precisely. Besides, we have made a minor improvement for correctional facilities.

                                                In the latest version of EMSOW’s HL7 Requests module, the Created column has been renamed as Received. Note that this column now displays a timestamp of order receipt (instead of just a date). Now you will know exactly when your client sent you an order from their EMR via HL7.

                                                Also, we have added the Date of service column that displays the date of service for processed requests.
