Преимущества SaaS-решений #billing #saas

Преимущества SaaS

Модель SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) – это достойная альтернатива традиционной модели использования программного обеспечения. Вместо закупки серверов, приобретения лицензий на ПО, установки и длительной конфигурации вы получаете готовое решение в аренду. Набор необходимых приложений установлен на удаленных серверах провайдера услуг и доступен пользователям через сеть.

Рассмотрим основные преимущества использования продуктов по модели SaaS:

Сокращение затрат

Модель SaaS предполагает абонентскую плату за пользование продуктом. Это означает отсутствие первоначальных лицензионных отчислений как за само решение, так и за используемую СУБД – а это весомая часть бюджета. Ваши начальные инвестиции приближаются к нулю – нет вложений в новые сервера, дополнительное оборудование или рабочие станции. Модель SaaS эффективно использует то, что у вас уже есть.

Экономия времени

Внедрение многокомпонентного комплекса информационных систем занимает как минимум несколько месяцев. В отличие от классического ПО, SaaS решения не требуют подготовки серверов, настройки рабочих станций. Требуемое решения уже установлены, настроены в минимальной требуемой конфигурации и готовы к работе. Компьютер с выходом в интернет – все что нужно, чтобы немедленно начать работу.

Масштабируемость и гибкость

По мере роста вашего бизнеса вам не требуется покупка дополнительных лицензий на абонентскую базу или количество пользователей. Подключение дополнительных рабочих мест к системе, открытие новых офисов или переезд – больше не составляет никаких проблем. При желании, со временем вы также можете включить в общее решение дополнительные модули, решающие специфичные задачи.

Автоматическое обновление

Вам больше не нужно доплачивать за новые версии продуктов. Все обновления внедряются в систему в безопасном режиме, и вы сразу получаете доступ к новым возможностям. Вам не нужно самостоятельно устанавливать обновления либо платить сторонним компаниям за апдейт. Нет рисков потерять свои данные при неудачном обновлении. Все происходит незаметно, без вашего участия и финансовых вложений. Вы всегда используете самую последнюю версию продукта.

Доступность из любого места

Все, что нужно вашим сотрудникам для работы – это браузер и выход в интернет. Неважно, что они используют – мощную рабочую станцию, ноутбук или планшет. Посмотреть аналитические отчеты из кафе или из дома – нет проблем. Организовать переезд офиса в другое место можно за один день – достаточно перевезти мебель и компьютеры, собственная серверная вам больше не понадобится.

Устойчивость к внешним воздействиям

Ваши данные хранятся в зашифрованном виде в надежных дата-центрах, защищенных от вредных воздействий. Пожар, затопление, внезапно сгоревший кондиционер в серверной, мстительный бывший сотрудник – эти угрозы вам больше не страшны. Вы можете полностью сосредоточиться на задачах бизнеса, оставив профессионалам заботу о технической стороне вопроса.

Снижение требований к инфраструктуре и персоналу

Требования к инфраструктуре снижаются – вам не нужны собственные сервера и резервные хранилища, специально оборудованные серверные помещения. Рабочие станции и выход в интернет – достаточный набор для операционной деятельности. Мы берем на себя множество функций – техническая и сервисная поддержка, обслуживание, контроль совместимости, безопасность, обновление, защита от атак и прочее – вам не нужен дополнительный персонал, чтобы заниматься этим.

Автоматическое резервное копирование данных

Вам не нужно беспокоиться о резервном хранении больших объемов данных. Вся ваша информация надежно защищена – мы автоматически производим регулярное резервное копирование данных в надежное хранилище. В случае сбоев системы, ошибки операторов или намеренного вмешательства в целостность данных мы гарантированно восстановим данные из резервной копии.

Модель SaaS обладает неоспоримыми преимуществами и позволяет малому и среднему бизнесу пользоваться продуктами промышленного уровня, лицензии на которые выходят за рамки его бюджета.

What is Medical Billing?

If you read the advertisements in the free newspapers in your city, or if you read the ads that pop up on your email account, or if you are searching for a job on an online service, you have learned that medical billing is a growing field needing trained professionals. This is not just salesmanship. It is true.

Even before the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA), the standards and requirements for submitting medical claims were complex. The medical reimbursement system in the United States is a convoluted network of regulations, statutes, contractual obligations, and guidelines promulgated by professional associations, health insurance companies, government agencies, and learned common practice.

Twenty years ago, someone without specialized training could get an entry-level position as a medical biller in a physician’s practice, in a hospital, or at another healthcare institution with little or no experience. While the knowledge required was just as specialized, the system itself, and the enforcement of rules, was more relaxed. Medical billers could learn on the job. Healthcare providers, today, need proof that an applicant is ready for the job, and he or she has appropriate training before the date of hire.

Fiscal concerns in the current healthcare climate have led to attempts by third-party payers to tighten reporting requirements in an effort to reduce fraud and abuse of the medical reimbursement system. By limiting payment for combinations of different codes, refining the definitions of codes, and putting a limit on the frequency of certain charges, commercial insurers and government payers scrutinize healthcare claims more closely than ever before. Under the PPACA, this scrutiny will increase.

What Does a Medical Biller Do?

While medical billers understand the language of medical code, many medical billers do not actively review medical records or assign codes in a large institutional setting. They may do so in a small office environment, but their focus is on clean claim submission and prompt payment. Professional medical billers’ primary role in the business function of a healthcare institution is to submit clean claims to third-party payers in compliance with the contractual obligations each party, the health insurance and the the healthcare provider, has agreed to follow to receive appropriate payment for services rendered to covered beneficiaries. Professional medical billers also follow up on claims after payment is received, or if a justifiable claim is denied.

Medical billers understand every field of the CMS-1500 claim form, which is used for outpatient medical billing, and also of the UB-04, which is used for inpatient billing. Completing an accredited program of study at a community college, private school, or online training course, gives medical billers the background to understand every required bit of data needed to receive payment for medically necessary services.

Professional medical billers, today, start their careers with a foundation of basic knowledge that they then apply in the field. The healthcare industry is always changing, and there is always some new wrinkle in the rules that govern claim submission. The system is uniform in that it uses standardized codes to describe patient encounters, procedures, and conditions, but how these standards are interpreted by different payers is always in flux as codes change annually, and as payer documentation requirements become more focused.

NCDs, LCDs, Medical Policies, and Global Periods

Medicare, which is the federal health insurance program that pays for the services provided to most elderly patients, promulgates a series of coverage determinations. Some of these are at the national level, applying across the U.S. (NCDs), while others are local (LCDs), that only apply to a certain geographical area. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) maintains a database of NCDs and LCDs. Any care provided that falls under the jurisdiction of an NCD or an LCD must meet certain medical requirements, reflected in the patient’s medical record, in order to be billed and paid appropriately.

The use of botulinum toxins, or botox, is a covered benefit for patients enrolled in Medicare Part B, and by the various state Medicaid programs, but only for certain conditions. Axillary botox injections for the treatment of excessive sweating that is not treatable by other means is covered by Medicare and Medicaid. Botox injections for cosmetic reasons are not entitled to payment by these programs. This is published in an NCD to be followed by all healthcare providers at the national level. The Medicare program has divided the country into 14 jurisdictions to monitor use on a more local level, and Medicare’s fiscal intermediaries are free to publish LCD guidelines within their geographic area to monitor usage and to prevent unnecessary claims. Medical billers know when services will be reimbursed in their area, and when they will not be covered.

Just as the government publishes its own coverage determinations, commercial healthcare insurers publish medical policies that have the same effect. These policies establish baselines of care, and they render judgement on what services are medically necessary for their beneficiaries, under what circumstances, and how these services should be reported in order to the resulting healthcare claims to be paid.

Every time a surgical procedure is performed, all other healthcare services performed after the date of original services fall within a pre-determined global surgical period. Follow-up appointments for evaluation and management of a condition are bundled into the payment of the original surgical procedure. The amount of time can range from ten days to thirty days. If a separately identifiable evaluation and management service is provided that qualifies for reimbursement, professional medical billers can modify a given code to indicate this to a payer, and the forthcoming payment will be received by that provider of medically necessary services.

Experts at Claim Submission

Medical billers are aware of the terms of coverage for a multitude of insurance plans, large and small. They are also able to report claims within the limits and capabilities of both paper and electronic claim submission. Paper claims on CMS-1500 forms and on UB-04s may be required for smaller payers. When a paper CMS-1500 is required, only four diagnosis codes can be reported. The same claim, submitted electronically, can contain eight diagnosis codes. Knowing how to tailor a claim according to the payer, and according to the format used to submit a claim, professional medical billers decrease the percentage of rejected claims on technical grounds, and speed timely cash flow for a healthcare provider.

Professional medical billers also understand the importance of the correct demographic information being reported on a healthcare claim, in addition to the proper reporting of procedures and conditions. If a third-party payer cannot recognize the patient as their beneficiary, either because policy or identification numbers are transposed, the date of birth is incorrect, or the name a patient provides is different from the name on his or her insurance contract, the claim will be returned to the healthcare provider as being non-covered. With attention to detail, medical billers correct demographic information, bill the primary payer, and, when applicable, submit claims to a secondary or tertiary payer depending on what insurance the patient carries.

Medical Billers are Specialized Bookkeepers

While submitting clean claims is the most important thing a medical biller can do to ensure appropriate and timely cash flow, they also post payments to individual accounts. Based on the fee schedule each healthcare provider agrees to when they sign a contract to see an insurer’s patients, medical billers write off excess monetary charges that are in excess of the fee schedule so that the patient is billed the amount dictated by their insurance contract. Medical billers do not only bill insurers, but they also bill patients for deductibles, co-insurance, and for copays that were not collected at the time of service. They also appeal claims that have been improperly denied payment so that the patient receives the benefits they are due.

Unlike certified medical coders, professional medical billers are trained in the practice of claims submission and follow-up, rather than in the theory of medical code. They are a valuable resource for healthcare institutions because they ensure that healthcare claims are submitted appropriately, and that the financial reimbursement is received according to the legal standards that govern the profession.

Medical Billing Coding Certificate Programs

Medical billing and coding certificates are some of the most popular credentials sought by students joining the field of medical billing and coding. Medical billing and coding certificate programs, which can last from nine months to a year, provide the training. and often the connections and post-graduate resources, needed to enter the field.

These programs are offered at career and community colleges. and build on existing education by focusing on career-oriented skills rather than general education. Typically an existing degree is needed to enroll in a certificate program.

Medical Billing and Coding Certificate Curriculum

The course material of most medical billing and coding certificate programs focuses on the job skills of medical coding and billing. There are few, or no, general education requirements in medical billing and coding certificate programs. However, certificate programs still provide a relatively broad education through introductory-level and 101 courses.

Medical billers and medical coders in certificate programs learn topics such as:

  • Medical Terminology
  • Insurance Claim Procedures
  • Medical Procedures
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Typing Skills
  • Computer Applications
  • Medical Office Administration

For example, the medical billing and coding certificate program at Kaplan University covers writing composition, medical terminology, healthcare software applications, anatomy, physiology, medical office management, and medical insurance practices. Specific courses vary from program to program.

Choosing the Right Medical Billing and Coding Certificate

While exploring medical billing and coding certificate programs, it is important to make sure the program you choose is properly accredited.

Medical billing and coding school accreditation is important to becoming competitive in the job market. It is even more important if you plan on pursuing medical billing and coding certification after graduation. Most certification agencies prefer you graduate from a program accredited by an agency they acknowledge.

The two most trusted accreditation agencies in the US are the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). Reputable programs may also be accredited by one of the six regional accrediting agencies.

Medical Software

Medical software includes a wide class of systems that manage the clinical and administrative functions of healthcare organizations. Systems have been tailored to automate just about every healthcare process, including billing, patient scheduling, creating and managing patient records, picture/image archiving, prescribing medication and more.

In this guide we discuss the following:

Common Features of Medical Software

Electronic medical record (EMR) or electronic health record (EHR) software assists in creating and storing digital patient records. Helps track patient notes, demographics, histories and medications. Features include e-prescribing, SOAP notes, E M coding advice and more. EMRs may also provide lab integration, device integration, tablet support and voice recognition.

Manages the creation of patient statements and submission of claims. Functions include coding, claim scrubbing, eligibility inquiry, electronic claim submission, payment posting and reporting.

Automates the process of scheduling patient visits. Features include automated follow-ups, text message/phone/email reminders and multi-location support. Typically offered with billing in a practice management suite.

Manages the operations and workflow of radiology imaging centers. Automates the process of storing, manipulating and distributing patient data and images.

Manages the storage and retrieval of DICOM images (X-rays, CAT scans, MRIs etc.). Often used in conjunction with an RIS to execute the radiology workflow efficiently.

Automates accounting procedures for healthcare practices. Functions include A/R, A/P, general ledger, financial reporting and more.

What Type of Buyer Are You?

Most organizations we speak with are researching and evaluating medical software for one or more of the following reasons:

Transitioning from paper charts to digital records. It s raining paper is the common cry we hear from paper-based practices. These buyers want to cut back on paper, improve office efficiency, reduce errors and run a more effective operation overall.

Replacing outdated software. This is a common scenario we hear from buyers. Their current system whether it be a homegrown system or from a medical software vendor is out of date and costly to maintain or update. They want a more modern system that is easier to use, meets federal requirements (e.g. ONC-ATCB certification) or that meets feature/functional needs.

Combining applications into an integrated suite. In many cases these practices have a hodgepodge of disparate applications, and as a result, find themselves doing double data entry and dealing with other inefficient workflows and processes. These organizations invest in integrated medical office management software that is, integrated EMR, billing and scheduling applications to centralize all information and functions in one place.

Implementing best-of-breed applications. Conversely, these buyers are focused on applications to address a specific need. Most often, buyers in this category are looking for a stand-alone billing, EMR, RIS or PACS system.

Pursuing federal incentives. We re three years into the HITECH Act, and many physicians are replacing their EHR or purchasing one for the first time to meet federal requirements. In order to qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentives, physicians or more accurately, eligible professionals must make meaningful use of a certified EHR. Providers have until 2015 to qualify, or they face penalties in the form of decreased reimbursements.

We should note that outpatient and inpatient organizations often have different feature/functional requirements. For example, inpatient care provider centers such as hospitals will require systems to support bed management, UB-04 billing and potentially long-term patient stays. Meanwhile, ambulatory care providers such as family medicine physicians and specialists will share common feature requirements to support walk-in/walk-out care.

Benefits of Medical Software

The general benefits of any medical system are improved quality of patient care, increased operational efficiency and improved practice profitability. These benefits are created by different applications and impact organizations in different ways.

  • The automation of back-office operations streamlines administrative tasks associated with patient encounters, which may enable providers to spend more time with patients and hire fewer staff.
  • More accurate documentation of these encounters and a more organized claims submission process can lead to improved collections.
  • Automated alerts prompt providers with potential issues or risks, while automated reminders help patients return to the office when necessary, improving quality of care.

In addition to these general benefits, the major applications found in medical software each provide a host of specific benefits. For example, in 2014 we surveyed physicians about the benefits of electronic health records. They cited easy access to records, more robust/legible records and drug interaction alerts as the top advantages of using an EHR.

Important Considerations

Integrated suite vs. best-of-breed. When selecting a system, buyers will have the choice of implementing different applications for specific tasks, or a complete suite of tools to address all their needs. The key decision that most providers will need to make is whether to implement a standalone electronic medical records (EMR) system or replace an existing practice management system with a complete system. We hear from many buyers facing this decision as practice management systems have been ubiquitous since the 1990s and EMRs are increasing in adoption, primarily due to the HITECH Act.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The trend toward cloud computing is impacting many industries, and healthcare is certainly one of them. Web-based, or SaaS, software offers several advantages such as lower upfront costs, reduced IT and support costs, remote accessibility and more. However, practices in rural settings may not have access to the broadband Internet necessary to efficiently run Web-based software. Moreover, Web-based systems may not support all the feature/functional needs of some practices with unique requirements.

Mobile computing. Going hand-in-hand with SaaS, healthcare providers are finding themselves increasingly on the go and accessing systems from multiple offices, home and mobile devices. Tablet (e.g. iPad) and smartphone support, including iPhones and Android phones, is increasingly common. If you will be accessing your software primarily from a mobile device, we suggest choosing a vendor that has developed a native app for your device, such as MediTouch s iPad EMR.

ONC-ATCB certification. As most healthcare professionals are aware, the HITECH Act of 2009 requires the use of electronic medical records systems by 2015. Eligible professionals can subsequently qualify for up to $44,000 through the Medicare EHR Incentive Program or up to $63,750 through the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. To qualify, they will need to demonstrate meaningful use of one of the ONC-ATCB certified EMRs .
