In the medical field, ranging from psychiatrists to oncologists, physicians aspire to provide their patients with the most effective and efficient medical care. However, too often doctors are tasked with managing administrative duties when their main priority is caring for their patients.
Practice management (PM) systems alleviate these concerns. In fact, InformationWeek believes that such systems are an “essential” investment for solo practices. PM systems provide three main benefits: more efficient operations, easier access to records, and simplified billing.
PM solutions with a built-in scheduler allows for a practice to clearly view patient appointments for any particular day and discern what tasks need to be completed before, during, and after appointments. Additionally, health care reminder systems can reduce the amount of patient nonattendance, commonly known as “no-show” appointments. Medical Practice Insider also states that, “PM softwares store important data in a safe, easily accessible location…[i]f a doctor has a question about a referring physician, or past medication, he or she can access the information almost instantly…[s]taff members can also easily find insurance and billing information.” When all members of a practice are able to seamlessly retrieve relevant medical documents, they are able to operate in an accurate and timely manner without disrupting patient care.
However, some physicians are resistant to implementing new software into their practices. Initially switching to a PM system will present certain obstacles; there is a learning curve when shifting from a manual to an online system. With RxNT|PM solution, this learning curve will be diminished with our comprehensive training and support.
Ultimately, utilizing an online PM system provides benefits for the practice, physician, and patient. By using RxNT’s PM system, physicians can customize their preference for billing. They can either complete billing in-house or a centralized office to manage multiple practices and can either send claims at the time of patient care or as batched claims. Additionally, physicians are able to track and manage claims, allowing them to collectively see reimbursements from insurance companies. Overall, it is important for physicians to run an efficient practice while providing the most professional health care for their patients.
RxNT|PM solution eliminates the hassles of administration and billing, enabling a more streamlined management process. To learn more about the benefits of RxNT|PM, contact us at 800-943-7968 option 3 or email us at Sales@RxNT.com.
