ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PatientKeeper®, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced at MGMA17 a new version of its electronic physician charge capture solution designed to meet the needs of small and mid-sized physician practices.
PatientKeeper Charge Capture™ – Office Edition streamlines the billing process by electronically capturing professional charges right within a physician's workflow from a wide range of devices – PC or laptop computer, smartphone or tablet. It is a fully hosted solution that requires virtually no IT infrastructure at the user organization, making it easy for practices to deploy, and PatientKeeper can be interfaced with existing practice management and billing systems.
Physician practices that use PatientKeeper can reduce lost charges, decrease charge lag time and improve coding compliance, which collectively improve the practice's business performance.
"Manual, paper based charge processes are fraught with opportunities to miss charges. Even provider organizations that have sophisticated EHRs in place often find those systems provide insufficient professional charge capture functionality and versatility," said Paul Brient, CEO of PatientKeeper. "For nearly 20 years, PatientKeeper has helped leading hospitals and health systems increase the efficiency of their operations. Now we're doing the same for smaller practice groups."
PatientKeeper enables providers to record charges for services they deliver quickly and easily – at the point of care, in the office, or anywhere in between. Physicians can search for diagnoses using familiar medical terminology, which is then mapped to appropriate specificity billable ICD-10 codes. Real-time code edits check for common coding errors and alert physicians at the time of charge entry. A comprehensive array of code edits, including CCI- and LCD-based edits, in addition to client-developed rules, results in far fewer instances of costly resubmissions that miss the claim-submission window. PatientKeeper also identifies potentially missed charges and reduces defensive "down-coding."
PatientKeeper is featuring its charge capture solution for physician practices at the MGMA 2017 conference in Anaheim, California, October 8 -11, at booth #1420.
