How to Get the Most Out of Your Medical Billing and Coding Service If you are a medical provider, you know that efficiency is the key to a successful practice. A lack of efficiency can cause your patients to get frustrated, leave your practice, and hinder your profit margins. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways you can improve the efficiency of your practice so that you, your staff members, and your patients remain happy. What Does an Efficient Medical Practice Entail? From the moment a patient calls your office to the end of the billing cycle, an efficient experience is expected. When the patient calls your office, someone should answer the phone immediately. In the event that there is nobody available to answer, the patient should be called back as soon as possible. When a patient schedules an appointment, their insurance information should be added into your system while they are educated on how to prepare for their appointment. Once they arrive at your office for their scheduled appointment, it’s imperative that you as a medical provider understands why they are there so that you can perform any necessary testing and/or provide them with the right prescription or treatment. Following their appointment, the patient be informed of the billing process. What Does Efficient Billing Involve?
