What Options Does Medical Practice Management Software Have?

By Mina R. Raynor

There are a variety of medical practice management software companies available to help medical practitioners and their staff to manage patient records and carry out administrative and patient care activities, so that they can focus on the health care part of medical care, instead of revenue cycles and other regulatory aspects that should be cared for by financial and administrative professionals. There are various features and services that make this possible, which we will consider below.

How a practice can manage bill collecting and insurance claims is something that most doctors are generally worried about. The automated billing service included in many medical management software bundles take the work out of the process by automatically making patient appointments, billing insurance companies, keeping track of billing progress, and sending billing/payment updates to users so that they can track and change billing information whenever it may be necessary. Each of these billing steps is done in a polite and professional manner that helps maintain and strengthen the relationship between medical personnel and patients.

Also, many doctor's offices that use medical practice management software often qualify for governmental incentive programs that have recently been implemented to help encourage economic growth in public service areas including transportation, education, infrastructure, unemployment benefits, and health care. When a practice can prove that they make "meaningful use" of Electronic Health Records (EHR) software, they qualify to receive one of the two (Medicare or Medicaid) incentive programs offered by the government.

Another advantage that comes with these applications is that each program within the package is usually interoperable, meaning that they work together and allow medical histories, test results, and other patient details to be accessed by users and exchanged with other health care organizations, providers, and systems. This saves the attending doctor, his staff, and other medical professionals the time, energy, and manpower that they would otherwise spend filing, finding, and sending this information manually.

One thing that is important to look for when shopping for a dependable medical practice management software provider is that they be certified as a "Complete EHR", by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT). Even though this isn't an endorsement by the Department of Health and Human Services or a guarantee that a doctor's office will qualify for an economic infusion from an incentive program, it is proof that the software stands up to clinical quality tests and is a dependable product that will perform the tasks needed by most medical establishments.
