CMS mandated new E/M codes effective 01/01/2013. PatientTrac has been ready and providing effective clinical documentation supporting E/M since 2007. Using E/M codes means higher visit complexity and higher insurance reimbursement.
Our clients always have up-to-date information on CPT Code changes. PatientTrac EMR has real-time E/M verification of what component have been completed in EMR and what billing level the visit qualifies for. No under-coding for our clients!
Our clients are not concerned about HIPAA 5010, ICD-10 and DSM-5 transitions; they know PatientTrac has implemented latest healthcare IT standards.
Still there are many providers out there who don’t realize the significance of ICD-10 mandate and what preparation steps by both EMR vendor and a provider are necessary. ICD-10 will impact both procedure codes and diagnostic codes for inpatient facilities, and diagnostic for outpatient facilities.
Each EMR encounter becomes a complete claim with CPT & diagnosis, no separate coding is needed. By the time patient checks out with the superbill the claim is ready to be submitted.
Provider has the power to review and update the coding levels, all within the clinical encounter which is especially important with new CPT codes for psychiatry implemented in 2013.
Precise coding without extra time
spent on billing.
