    Feature release 11/16/2022: Notifications for reading doctors

    November 16, 2022

    Greetings to all!

     

    Many people receive constant reminders on their smartphones: birthdays, anniversaries, doctor’s appointments, social engagements. At work, their computers prompt them to meet deadlines, attend meetings and have lunch with the boss. Something similar is happening to doctors. And when they’re hit with too much information, the result can be a health hazard. The electronic patient records come with a host of bells and whistles that may be doing the opposite in some cases.

     

    That is why EMSOW tries to make only useful features which can make it easier to work with us. This week we’ve made two releases that can help reading doctors receive notifications faster. You can learn more about these enhancements below.

      November 10, 2022

      Dear practitioner!

       

      Being paid on time is a top priority for many practitioners. One technology that professionals are adopting more and more to simplify the claim reimbursement process is electronic claim submission. Practitioners are finding that transmitting insurance claims electronically to carriers managed care companies, and other health care payers can increase their cash flow and improve the efficiency of their billing processes.

       

      This week EMSOW made a new feature which can make your work with claims easier and faster. You can find it below in the Submit electronic claims window as well as another useful enhancement.

      Dear provider!

       

      Cloud-based PACS systems are becoming more common across radiology practices looking to increase the effectiveness and scalability of their clinical practice. Cloud PACS solutions are substantially faster than on-premise PACS systems and frequently have lower installation, operation, and management costs.

       

      In addition to the advantages that were mentioned above, EMSOW also always pays attention to your needs and tries to make updates every week so your work with us would be smoother and better.

          The US healthcare industry is the third-largest in the country, and it impacts the lives of almost every American. Let’s look at the US healthcare industry statistics:

          • Healthcare spending represented 19.7% of the US economy in 2020, with $1.27 trillion in revenue.
          • 14% of U.S. adults are employed in the healthcare industry.
          • An average American couple aged 65 and over needs around $295,000 saved for medical expenses during retirement.
          • The U.S. ranks as the 35th healthiest country in the world.

            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.

                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.

                  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.

                    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.

                        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.

                        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...

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.

                            Dear provider!

                             

                            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.

                              Let’s start this day with some insurance facts! Did you know that Taco Bell once purchased taco insurance, America Ferrera had her smile insured for $10,000,000 and no insurance company will underwrite Jackie Chan’s productions?

                                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. Practitioners are discovering that transmitting insurance claims electronically to carriers managed care companies, and other health care payers can increase their practice's cash flow and help streamline their billing operations.

                                 

                                EMSOW cares about its users and makes updates every week and this time we’ve made an update in Transactions to facilitate the work with electronic claims. You can find this enhancement below.

                                        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.

                                          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.

                                            Dear practitioner!

                                             

                                            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.

                                             

                                            We realize how difficult it is to manage business these times, that’s why EMSOW enhances the platform every week to make it easier for you to use and for your business to prosper.

                                             

                                            This week we slightly changed our user permissions system to give you more flexibility in allowing users to remove billing transactions. You can also check out a new viewing mode in the DICOM Viewer.
