Mr Cash Flow's Tips & Tricks

Many practices, eager to get into the EMR incentives early, are now finding that they need to change systems to keep up with meaningful use criteria.  Others, who were slow to adopt EMR, are now scrambling to choose the right system for their practice.  Here are some suggestions that might be helpful as you evaluate potential EMR/EHR systems for your practice:


Be sure to check out referrals and references for this particular vendor.  What is their level of experience?  How many installs do they have?  What specialties do they specialize in and what specialties do they have little experience with?  What size practice do they typically install?  Do they have certified products for 2014?  Have they merged or acquired other vendors recently?  What other products do they offer?  Is the EMR/EHR product their main source of business, or is it just an add-on product to their…

Medical and Dental Practices: Is insurance follow-up eating up your staff time?

11 Feb

Insurance companies have a vested interest in paying your practice as slowly as possible. They will delay, deny, and “on-hold” you to death just to keep your money a few days longer and earn interest on that money.


Living “on-hold” with insurance companies seems to be a way of life for some of your office staff, as clerks search forever for claim information. Sitting and waiting while they look up claims is costing you big time, not just in employee salaries, but also in lost productive time.


What if there was a highly effective, inexpensive way to motivate insurance companies to contact you regarding those claims? What if you didn’t have to waste the time of your employees “on-hold?” What if you could get an answer or your money more quickly?


Transworld Systems, a sponsored program with the AMA, a Preferred Vendor with the MGMA, and the largest collector of medical debt in the US, has a unique Insurance Resolution service that you can use to make these things a reality. For a low flat fee per claim, you can have them contact the insurance companies for you. When the insurance companies are contacted by a third party such as Transworld Systems, they will treat the inquiry with much higher priority than they will when they are contacted by your practice or a hospital. When receiving a third party inquiry, they are required to escalate the inquiry to a supervisor, and then have the supervisor contact your practice to resolve the claim.

It’s quick, it’s inexpensive, and it’s easy. And best of all, you can have your “on-hold” person spend their time on something less frustrating and more profitable for your practice.

It is just one of a whole suite of services that Transworld Systems can provide for your practice to help you get paid faster by both patients and insurance companies.
