Medical Practice Management
We have experienced a rapid consolidation of PM/EMR companies in recent years and the reduction in options is actually a good thing for Doctors. Integrated platforms that are more user friendly, comprehensive in their features and functionality are what remains in a very competitive arena. But beware, it's ultimately mostly true that you get what you pay for. Doctors usually are more familiar with their EMR needs and functionality that on the Practice Management side. Keep in mind that while you may be providing high quality care, you may not be able to collect what you're due if your Practice Management system or Staff doesn't have the ability to track the right metrics. Considering outsourcing your Billing & Collections may be your best bet in ensuring you're getting paid, regardless of the system you use.
