The medical billing feature handles the practice’s medical billing, invoicing, and claims management electronically. Not only does electronic medical billing aid practices in becoming more HIPAA complaint and achieving meaningful use when used with an EHR system, but it can help simplify your billing and claims processes through various features. A billing system will allow you to easily find medical billing records without having to sort through piles of paper. It also allows you to easily file claims with insurance companies through the electronic claims management feature, fast billing coding, and revenue management system.

Information from new patients is captured on a patient information form and entered into the software by staff. Information may include patient’s name, contact information, insurance information, and other data. Using this system, practices can automatically check insurance claims eligibility of each patient.
