J.D. Power: Insurers Attempt to Satisfy and Engage Plan Subscribers

Insurance is big news and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, especially as the Trump Administration works to pull its levers on the current law, the Affordable Care Act. That goes without saying. What does need some talking points, according to J.D. Power and Associates, is that health plan members tend to be more satisfied with their insurance coverage when providers coordinate their healthcare. [cont...]

Report: Expanded Health Record Market Continues to Grow, Especially in Ambulatory

Analyst firm Frost & Sullivan says that the U.S. ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) market has expanded significantly throughout the past five years because of incentives provided by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and that the rapid advancement of technology and healthcare reform triggered by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), particularly the move to value-based reimbursement, has led to the formation of accountable care organizations (ACOs) and patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs).

"What was good about NueMD was that it had all the features I needed for all the specialties that we do billing for." [cont...]

Transcript: 

Affordability was very much a factor. There are so many different software’s out there that have all these bells and whistles on them. Things that you don’t really need and you don’t really use. That’s what was good about NueMD. It had all the features I needed for all the specialties that we do billing for.

Codes are changing consistently and there are times that I’m really not sure if I need a fifth digit or a fourth digit on that code. So I will do the claim scrubbing to make sure that I’m not going to have any issues, and it helps tremendously.

We have what they call as a billing service the, “super account.” Which allows us to go into the super account and use a drop down menu to pull up any provider and be able to switch to that provider in just a matter of seconds.

Batch Payments, I love the ERA’s. Instead of manually posting your EOB’s as they come in, all I have to do is open up the batch, view and post and I’m done.  You know, you have to love what you’re doing and the business is very important to me. I want to be proud of it, as well I want my accounts to be proud of it.

"Having a cloud-based system versus a server based? Let’s just say when the electricity goes out I’m still happy." [cont...]

Transcript: 

My move back into the health field was mainly inspired by patients and being able to have that interaction.

Having worked on previous systems before, they just weren’t user friendly. And NueMD is very user-friendly. Because of my background, my boss had felt that I was smart enough to just pick it up on my own.

It’s amazing. I mean, you go in and if I have a question I’ll look at the book and boom I have an answer.

Having a cloud-based system versus a server based? Let’s just say when the electricity goes out I’m still happy.

One of the things that I really like is the billing module. With other software that I’ve used before you had to click on a screen then click on another screen. In this it’s super easy. I go in, boom it’s right there. I can do everything I need to within that one frame.

We are a paperless clinic so it fits right in. We’re able to process our work online,  get the information to other people that are using the product within the clinic as well.

Being able to get into a program, work as fast as you can, not have any glitches means that I’m giving my patients the best possible care that I can personally at a faster rate for them. 

Study: 67 percent of providers believe image sharing is "critical"

Electronic medical records software and other sharing programs have the potential to increase patient care and economic value in the healthcare industry, particularly when it comes to images. However, some healthcare organizations have had a difficult time getting providers on board with learning and implementing these systems.  [cont...]

"We chose NueMD because of the affordability and because the documentation was very easy to understand and train."  [cont...]

Transcript: 

One thing we really like about NueMD is the patient demographic can be easily updated. We can organize that information by the last time the patient was in. We can re-access or store the information, whichever we prefer with just one click. The information is always there, always accessible. 

We also like being able to put notes in the patient’s chart that the clinician can see the day they’re coming in so they know if the patient is running late, they know when the patient has arrived, they know what the situation is on a new evaluation. 

Using NueMD for our billing has been very helpful because we can actually check to see what payments are forthcoming that are not in our bank yet and we can also see what paper checks are coming. We can anticipate when they will be received. 

We can also run a report on exactly when all the payments have arrived or anticipated payments will arrive. 

ICD-10 Basics: What is ICD-10?

With the transition to ICD-10 just a few months away, many healthcare professionals are still stressing over whether or not they’ll actually be ready by Oct. 1 – especially those in small practices.

Last month we conducted a survey of 1,000 healthcare professionals to gauge just how stressed they were about the transition and to see where they stood in terms of preparedness. When we asked respondents if they felt confident they would be adequately trained by the Oct. 1 deadline, only 11 percent say they are “highly confident.” And with less than six months to go, that’s a little concerning.
