Steps to simplify ambulance billing and coding services
« on: May 06, 2021, 09:26:05 AM »
1.   One of the most vital steps is to hire experienced ambulance coders. As discussed above ambulance coding is complicated hence, to simplify this process one must hire a qualified and experienced individual who has clarity of role and job and can simplify the process
2.   Secondly conduct persistent training for the coders so that they are abreast with the changing environment
3.   Effective and efficient utilization of EHR. Automation is one of the best ways to simplify a process. However, automation needs to be used smartly. It is also important that the emergency medical services make it a point to choose an EHR that suits their needs

And a great muffled laugh was heard across the country.

From the providers I have encountered in real life, plus all those I have read about, the introduction of an EMR to a practice costs the provider about 30% of his day.  Instead of seeing patients for that 30%, and increasing his revenue, he is paying attention to the requirements of the EMR, because the Insurance Carriers / Medicare won't pay him unless he does.

Simplification indeed.

75% of the time my dr is in the room with me she is typing.   :-\   I can't imagine if the ambulance personal were trying to use EHR while caring for a patient.
