There is no shortage of surveys and academic reports reinforcing the idea that telehealth generally improves practices’ ROI. According to a 2017 Foley report, 71% of practices realized cost savings due to its implementation, with 29% realizing a 20% or more improvement. But many articles showcasing telemedicine’s financial impacts consist of case studies highlighting particular practices, rather than a representative sample of practice types across the country. Add in the spike of telemedicine usage during COVID-19, and there is even less literature about ROI in a way that’s relevant in the present day. This lack of information is likely contributing…

It’s no secret that physicians work long hours not only for the direct benefit of their patients, but out of necessity to keep their practices afloat. Arduous insurance billing and out-of-date-technology, such as clunky EHRs, are just a couple of the many culprits that keep doctors at the office. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has demanded additional resources from healthcare workers, not simply in terms of patient volume, but regarding learning curves and adjustments to reimbursement changes, telehealth delivery, safety protocols and more. …

The Walking Meeting

How do medical claims work?

Because there are a heck of a lot of medical claims being submitted electronically through DrChrono, the questions is how do we do this? There is something called the “EDI”. “EDI” simply means Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). EDI is the electronic interchange of business information using a standardized format; a process which allows one company (e.g. drchrono) to send information to another company, (e.g. Emdeon/Change Healthcare, TriZetto, iHCFA) electronically rather than with paper. (Learn more here.)

It all starts with “EDI 837 Health Care Claim”: The EDI 837 transaction set is the format established to meet HIPAA requirements for the…
