    Three Reasons You Should Outsource Your Medical Billing Services

    Posted by Carl Mays on Wed, Sep 26, 2018 @ 04:03 PM

    3 reason to outsource your medical billingThe majority of the chief financial officers (CFOs) involved in the 2018 CFO Outlook Performance Management Trends and Priorities in Healthcare listed cost reduction as their no. 1 priority.

    Among them, 50% expressed the desire for easier report creation, better dashboards and visuals, and enhanced ability to understand the report and data statistics. Also, a staggering 90% have shown their concern over the online payment security of their accounts. How can outsourcing your medical billing services address these concerns? Is this even possible?

    How Outsourcing Your Medical Billing Service Can Help Your Practice

    Outsourcing your medical billing services can bring numerous benefits to your practice including:

    Increased Revenues and Reduced Labor Costs

    Approximately, 8% to 10% of medical collections are spent on the medical billing process. However, with an outsourced medical billing, you can:

    • Reduce overhead costs
    • Increase reimbursements
    • Decrease claim denials and rejections

    In an orthopedic billing case study, the group reported a 73% increase with their billing revenue within six to eight months. This was due to the improved contracting and exiting unprofitable procedure lines implemented in their medical billing process.

    In most instances, physicians and office medical managers even realize a 96% claim payment upon the first submission in less than 45 days. All because they have moved their medical billing services to a third party provider.

    Easy to Read Dashboard Reports and Data Statistics

    Now you can focus more on your patients rather than spending long hours analyzing and interpreting your medical billing reports, with the help of an outsourced medical billing provider.

    Third party providers have medical billing online dashboards that easily show the issues with your medical account at a glance. Also, the data can be tracked on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis according to:

    • Patient volumes
    • Procedure mixes
    • Collections
    • Days in AR

    This makes it easier for your staff to handle your patients’ financial matters and results in a less time-consuming experience for them.

    Safe and Secured Data Infrastructure

    Last year, DataBreaches.net shared a data compilation revealing that 477 healthcare breaches affecting 5.579 million patient records were reported to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

    Choosing the services of a well established third party medical billing company can protect your patient records through 100% secure medical billing processes. These HIPAA-compliant providers offer a secure and transparent billing process that ensures your data remains confidential at all times.

    Now you can say goodbye to those unwanted cyber hack attacks without having to pay extra for cyber-security protection. These are all taken care of by your third-party provider. All you need is to find a medical billing third-party provider who can deliver the medical billing services you require.
