First the bad news, “there is none”, Now the Good News “E-md’s, and a private equity firm acquires Medisoft Medical Billing Software products from McKesson.

McKesson Business Performance Services (McKesson), over the past few months, conducted an analysis of their products and services to determine what products fit best with their organization.  After this evaluation, they determined that the Medisoft, Lytec and Practice Choice and Practice Partner products would be better served by a company that focuses more on the individual and small doctor practice market and found a private equity firm , focused on the small doctor practices, that they felt would better serve the Medisoft customers.

“McKesson chose to partner with e-MDs as it is an industry leader, founded by physicians and focused solely on the small- to medium-sized independent physician practice” says Harry Selent, President of MedicalBillingSoftware.com. ” McKesson feels e-MDs is the optimal  Parent Company that would best serve the Medisoft customers” says Selent. 

e-MDs is a portfolio company of Marlin Equity Partners (Marlin), which is a global investment firm with over $3 billion of capital. Marlin invests in companies where its capital base, industry relationships, and extensive network of operational resources significantly strengthen and enhance the value provided by its acquired products.  e-MDs is a leading provider of integrated electronic health records (EHR), practice management (PM) software, revenue cycle services, and credentialing solutions for small- and medium-sized, independent physician practices and enterprises.

Medisoft and Lytec are medical practice management and medical billing software programs used to help manage the Revenue Cycle Management of individual and small doctor practices around the country. Practice Choice and Practice Partner are electronic medical and health records software used by doctors and healthcare providers to document patient encounters and track details of patients and replaces the paper charts medical offices have been using.

The purchase agreement with e-MDs includes the Medisoft Value-Added Reseller  channel, which MedicalBillingSoftware.com is a member of, and services many of the doctors and healthcare providers using Medisoft. e-MDs will manage the day-to-day operations of the staff,  and products. The acquisition by Marlin Equity Partners is subject to customary closing terms and conditions, and is expected to be complete in 30-60 days. 

Over the course of the next month, McKesson will be working closely with the e-MDs team to plan for the transition of the support and development functions that support these products as soon as the official closing takes place. It is the intention of McKesson and e-MDs to make this transition for the customers as seamless as possible. 

McKesson, and MedicalBillingSoftware.com are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for its customers, and looks forward to the future success of its customers with the Medisoft, and Practice Choice Products!

McKesson Practice Focus: Mobile Data Platform Helps Ensure Financial Health Tracking the economic vital signs of a physician practice is critical to good financial health. Fortunately for Pamela Henry, practice manager for Honolulu-based Radiology Associates, Inc., there’s a powerful tool that helps make the job a lot easier.

McKesson Practice Focus Mobile™ is a dashboard-driven informatics platform that allows users to access essential practice data and trends on the fly. Thanks to a combination of advanced, high-speed mobile technology and the power of the iPad®, practice managers like Henry can pull up real-time financial and operational metrics anytime, anywhere.

“With McKesson Practice Focus Mobile, I can look at my current AR, the volume for the month, physician activity; basically whatever I need to know,” says Henry, who’s managed the 18-physician imaging group for 10 years. “It makes it extremely convenient and saves a lot of time.” Henry says McKesson Practice Focus Mobile is especially helpful for assessing financial data after office hours or during board meetings, when partners may have a particular question regarding the group’s performance. “They may want a quick summary of our billing performance or our procedure volume, and it’s all right at my fingertips,” she says.

The data helps the group’s leadership make better decisions about staffing, modalities and equipment purchases. Partnering with McKesson Radiology Associates, Inc. provides both diagnostic and interventional radiology services and is one of the largest imaging practices on the island of Oahu. The group is affiliated with Queens Medical Center, the largest private hospital in Hawaii, and has been in business since 1972. Two years ago, Radiology Associates partnered with McKesson Business Performance Services (McKesson BPS) for revenue cycle management services. According to Henry, the practice chose McKesson on the strength of the company’s track record in radiology billing and the expertise of its billing team. Along with improved collections, reduced denials and stronger cash flow, McKesson also provided the group with improved financial and operational insight via McKesson Practice Focus, a web portal, and its companion mobile application.

Henry says both the desktop and mobile apps help improve strategic planning by providing visibility into long-term trends. The applications allow users to set benchmarks and budgets, and also gain insight by comparing practice metrics against national and regional averages. Other specific capabilities include denial reporting, payer analysis, daily activity by practice location and more.

Tracking Billing Results Just as important, Henry says, McKesson Practice Focus helps the group monitor McKesson’s billing performance. “We need to keep track of how the practice as a whole is doing, and we also must make sure that McKesson is meeting its obligations and responsibilities as our billing provider,” she says. “The ability to monitor their performance on a day-today basis helps create peace-of-mind for the partners, and it also ensures a stronger relationship and better communications with the McKesson team.” “We couldn’t be happier partnering with McKesson, and also with the tools they provide,” Henry says. “McKesson Practice Focus Mobile represents a real breakthrough for us.”

Curious about what a Medical Claim is or looks like?

Medical claims are a printed or electronic document that contains information from a Medical provider, about a patient, regarding the visit or treatment.

The claim is usually printed on a CMS 1500 insurance claim form like the following:

 

Medical billing claim form

The doctors office usually completes the insurance claim form for the patients and prints and mails it or sends it electronically to the insurance company.  Some medical offices do not submit this form, but instead print a basic “receipt” that has the doctors name and office address; and a list of CPT procedure codes they are billing for, and the associated Diagnosis codes assigned to the patient and the patient must file this with thier insurance company.

Successful Medical Office TipsEssential Front Office Desk Practices for Efficient Medical Office Management

It takes an entire office staff working together to make sure a patient receives quality and timely care. The blueprint of care is developed long before a patient steps foot into a practice. It is important to have policies in place for efficient office management.

Even if you think you have a flawless plan, it always helps to compare your policies with other offices. There are always steps you can take to be better. You will want to make sure all of the policies in place will result in swift and excellent service.

Here are the essential policies for one medical practice in Ohio. They make sure the lines of communication are always open and policies are carried out in an efficient manner. This office has five doctors and sees hundreds of patients per day.

 

Filling out Proper Practice Forms

The office staff encourages patients to go on to the practice website and fill out all paperwork ahead of time. The office also gives new patients 15 minutes to fill out forms in the office. When a patient comes in for an appointment, a staff member prints out a demographic form and has the patient review the form. If there are any changes, the patient puts it on the form, initials and dates it. A patient does not have to fill out a brand new form unless there are a lot of changes. This saves a lot of time.

When printing out demographic forms for the next day, the staff includes any other forms or papers that need to be given to the patient. For example a physical acknowledgement form, or any forms needed for Medicare Wellness visits, etc. At every visit the staff always verifies insurance, pharmacy of choice, phone numbers and address.

 

Preparation and Verification

New patients are asked to bring their prescription bottles in a bag instead of writing the prescription names down on a piece of paper. This makes it easier for both the office staff and physician.

This particular primary care office uses an automated appointment reminder system. They also call new patients to confirm appointments two days ahead of the scheduled appointment date. The office staff prints the next two days of schedules just in case computers go down. A balance due report is also printed and the front desk addresses balance due at check-in.

A staff member will take a patient’s insurance card and scan it every single visit. If a patient doesn’t have their insurance card, the office makes the patient self-pay. Payment is collected at the time of service. Once the insurance card is collected, the office will file a claim. When payment is received from the insurance company a patient refund check will be issued.

 

Conclusion

 It’s important to have a plan in place and that everyone in the office is on the same page. Even if you think you have a flawless plan, it’s important to take note what other medical practices are doing. This can help your practice become even more efficient. What are some of the steps your practice takes to make the patient process run more smoothly?
