    • Medical Record Scanning in Phoenix: How Document Management Solutions Benefit Healthcare Organizations
      • To justify healthcare investments, medical record scanning in Phoenix must deliver an acceptable financial return and meet regulatory requirements. Whether you're in a clinical setting, healthcare billing center or administrative department, a healthcare document management solution provides fast and efficient information processing.
      • Improved economics and government mandates provide the growth drivers behind medical record scanning in Phoenix. To justify healthcare investments, a document management solution must deliver an acceptable financial return and meet regulatory requirements.
      Document Management Solutions
      • Basically, document management systems convert paper files to electronic documents and automate manual processes. Healthcare organizations can transform patient records into electronic images and upload them directly into Electronic Medical Records (EMRs).
      • Whether you're in a clinical setting, healthcare billing center or administrative department, a medical record scanning in Phoenix solution can best serve your organization. Fast and efficient processing of information throughout a healthcare organization is a critical component in patient care and financial performance.
      How Document Management Solutions Benefit Healthcare
      • The healthcare industry has seen an increased demand for document management systems. Some supporting statistics include:
      • According to a Healthcare IT News survey, more than 36 percent of respondents said they have two or more document management applications within their organization.
      • In a Healthcare Finance News survey, nearly 46 percent reported having two or more document management applications.
      Gaining Traction in Healthcare Organizations
      • With medical record scanning in Phoenix, you no longer hunt, search or wait for information. You access records directly from your healthcare software. In addition, a high-quality document management solution captures content outside your EMR system, such as paper, forms, faxes, graphics, photos and clinical images, and integrates it within your patient records.
      • Physicians, nurses and staff have thousands of documents readily available. A document management system provides additional performance benefits including:
      •  
      • Unified electronic medical records.
      • More time devoted to patients.
      • Faster billing and improved revenue cycle.
      • Collaboration among healthcare organizations.
      Creating Efficiencies through Document Management Solutions
      • You can use document management solutions to handle patient billing, health information management, labs, medical imaging, patient accounting, patient registration and provider credentialing. A system can improve efficiency and reduce the costs associated with revenue cycle management by migrating to paperless processes and sophisticated routing. Each area is discussed in greater detail below:
      • Patient Billing. Medical record scanning in Phoenix streamlines patient billing on several fronts. Registration clerks can capture required documents such as insurance cards and drivers’ licenses. Advanced systems can also process incoming electronic remittance advice files from Medicare and handle paper Explanation of Benefits returned from private insurers. With high quality document management solutions, secondary claims generated from the hospital's billing application can be processed without scanning. A quality system will also be able to process denial codes.
      • Health Information Management (HIM). Systems should manage the processes associated with the traditional paper chart or medical record, including chart deficiencies, chart completions, release of information requests and remote coding.
      Implementing a Document Management Solution
      • Labs. Medical record scanning in Phoenix can capture lab reports from various lab information systems. It can also manage policies and procedures within the lab.
      • Medical Imaging. Your document management solution should capture radiology documents and present them to radiologists for reading.
      • Patient Accounting. A meaningful solution scans, converts and stores incoming Explanation of Benefits documents. A system should also manage denied claims and automate secondary billing.
      • Patient Registration. Medical record scanning in Phoenix makes the registration process easier and more efficient. An efficient system captures driver's licenses, insurance cards and other pertinent documents presented at registration.
      Implementing a Document Management Solution
      • Provider Credentialing. Document management solutions store necessary credentialing documents, including state licenses, board certifications, DEA and CDS registrations, medical school records and residency credentials. The documents become quickly accessible to those who need them. In addition, the system helps automate the collection of credentialing documents and notifies users when it’s time to re-credentialing.
      • In this current economic environment, it makes sense to leverage your health IT investments. Forward-thinking hospitals are turning to document management solutions for increased efficiencies and improved financial performance. And that can only be good for patients.
