Medical Record Scanning in Phoenix: How Document Management Solutions Benefit Healthcare Organizations (Part 4 of 4)

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

This blog post is the fourth of a 4-part series that will describe how document management solutions benefit healthcare organizations.

  • 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.
  • 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.

This blog post is the third of a 4-part series that will describe how document management solutions benefit healthcare organizations.

Implementing a Document Management Solution

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.   By providing redundant, simultaneous, secure access to patient records, healthcare organizations improve performance and patient care.

  • 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.
