Top 5 Tips to Streamline Your Practice's Billing (and When to Hire the Best)

05/07/2019


Billing is just more complicated than it used to be. Reforms to the healthcare system have introduced value-based compensation models, additional billing rules and regulations, and an altogether more time-consuming revenue cycle management process for healthcare practices. Nationwide, practices are losing millions in revenue each month just trying to stay up-to-date on new procedures and correct the billing errors that inevitably result from these challenges. Practices need a clear process to follow when it comes to minimizing lost revenue. A streamlined process starts at the front desk and works itself all the way through to the back office.

Your Practice's Online Image

04/14/2019

In 2019, patients often expect that their doctors and healthcare providers are somewhat accessible online, whether through websites with a Patient Portal that offers online scheduling and other perks, or social media. Many practices use Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or other social media to connect with potential patients and keep current patients engaged.



More people than ever use the internet to “shop” around for a healthcare practice. Online ratings and reviews allow patients to leave feedback for a doctor’s office that informs potential patients looking to find the best doctor in their area. More than 73% of patients say that positive reviews make them trust a practice more. Patients often use social media platforms to share their experiences with a practice and find new practices when they are unhappy with their current provider.

Switch to MacPractice

03/02/2019

Many practices find themselves holding on to software that does not serve their needs, or may even hinder from opportunities to provide the best patient care possible. Why do they do it? Switching to a different software means undertaking a potentially expensive and resource draining transition, and there’s always a chance they won’t be any happier with the new product in the end. Still, a 2017 Medical Economic report found that 62% of survey respondents had switched to another Electronic Healthcare Record software at some point in their career. 

Taking the leap of faith to a new product can be daunting, especially if the software you switch to is made by a company that isn’t set up to fully support your transition. At MacPractice, we like to think of ourselves as partners in the success of your practice. And not just your practice’s financial success, but the bigger picture, real satisfaction kind of success for you, your staff, and even your patients.

Reevaluating Your Practice's Billing in 2019

01/28/2019


Your practice relies on an effective billing strategy to thrive. However, most practice owners did not become doctors because they are fascinated by revenue cycle management. If you are like most small to medium doctor-owned practices, your main interest is in providing excellent healthcare to your patients, even if you are very aware that software and effective billing are necessary to turn a profit. If you feel like your practice is ‘just getting’ by in survival mode, rather than thriving with a strong revenue strategy, know that you are not alone.
