Choosing a medical billing EMR solution needs to be done carefully as different products come with various advantages and benefits. Take a look at the following three things to consider when seeking out medical billing solutions:
First and foremost, you’ll need to consider the cost of your EMR, not just initially, but also in the long-term. Some EMR products offer low costs to start, but then they charge an exorbitant subscription fee that may end up being more than your practice can handle. Likewise, there are free EMR solutions available, but many of these have a lot of ads and place limitations on functionality. In order to overcome both hurdles, look for an EMR solution that is customizable, offers unlimited access to features, providing the ability to grow into an enterprise-level solution as your practice grows.
When it comes to features offered by an EMR, your practice will need to not only evaluate its current needs, but also its future needs. As mentioned above, your practice is likely to grow over time, so you’ll want to think about what you’ll need down the road in order to keep up with patient demands and care. Consider that you’ll want to have an EMR that can handle both digital and paper claims, dedicated customer support, and secure access and backup to data in the cloud. These factors can make a huge difference in your practice’s ability to keep up as it grows.
In addition, you’ll want to find a medical billing solution that includes the ability to be accessed across a variety of operating systems and devices, including desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablet PCs. When thinking about support, you’ll also want to look for a product that offers extras for your staff, such as online webinar training in order to operate at the maximum level of efficiency.
