Physician practices want to provide quality care to patients. That is the focus of everything that you do. Non-clinical, back office operations are actually imperative to reaching that goal. Patients cannot receive care if the practice doesn’t get paid. If you are stuck with manual processes, you’re wasting time and money that your practice could be saving. Those are resources that could go towards better patient care.
Automating Back Office Operations
Automation can save time and money across the administrative workflow of a practice. This includes eligibility and benefit verification, prior authorizations, claim submissions, claim status inquiry, and claim payment. According to the 2018 CAQH Index, if all elements of the workflow were automated, it could save physician practices up to $27.31 per single patient encounter. It also saves you time. Physician practices could save up to 30 minutes per patient by automating their administrative tasks.
