In a healthcare surrounding, which delves into
patient care, drugs prescription and medical
billing and coding for claims reimbursement, even
the smallest manual data entry error can have
devastating consequences. Today, despite the
advances in automation technology, many providers
still fill out an average of around 20,000 forms
manually each year. Inefficiencies in filing
claims run rampant across healthcare
organizations, leading to hefty administrative
costs. In fact, roughly 40 percent of healthcare
costs go to administrative overhead. Manual data
entry forces healthcare facilities to spend
valuable time and resources on completing simple
tasks and then rectifying mistakes. But now you
have the power to avoid or eradicate these errors
and inefficiencies with modern automation
technology and billing software. Lets look at
some of the pitfalls of manual data entry in
healthcare and ways for reducing risk and
improving productivity. The expense of manual
data entry error If your healthcare organization
relies on manual data entry, these costs are
unavoidable. Medical errors through human data
entry errors are common and unavoidable. When
employees are exhausted or distracted, they can
easily input the wrong numbers or data

  • Do keep in mind that medical error in
    documentation is the third leading cause of death
    in the United States. When doctors dont have
    access to medical records or worse function on
    faulty information, patient lives are at stake.
  • Medical test reports can contain dozens of
    information points, and physicians make real-time
    clinical decisions based on these numbers.
    Physicians and emergency staff need accurate
    results to be able to correctly diagnose and
    treat patients.
  • Overlooked results Forgetting to record test
    results in the EHR system slows down a patients
    treatment process and can spell trouble for
    audits and compliance
  • Inappropriate reporting Healthcare facilities
    that base decisions on inaccurate information
    could make decisions that threaten patient safety
    and miss opportunities to improve care
  • Filing claims physically also lead to lost
    productivity when administrative staff loses
    track of documents. Healthcare units large or
    small on an average reorder three of every ten
    tests because they cannot find the results and
    are unable to locate patient charts on 30 percent
    of visits.

  • The paybacks of automating healthcare data entry
    processes
  • Automating and integrating your healthcare claims
    filing systems lets you simplify monotonous data
    entry tasks, including
  • Electronic health records (EHR)
  • Prescribing medications
  • Patient check-in
  • Financial reporting
  • Scheduling medical appointments
  • Medical billing and coding
  • Direct benefits of automated medical billing
    claims filing system include
  • Following the rules
  • During an inspection, youll need to provide
    patient test results and logs for quality
    control. Incorrect or unorganized documents can
    make audits extremely stressful. And failure to
    meet rules/compliance requirements can lead to
    heavy fines or suspension. With modern claims
    filing and billing software, youll have peace of
    mind knowing your data records are accurate,
    secure and meet all compliance requirements.

Higher quality care and less administrative
waste Inputting, verifying and reporting on
patient or healthcare data is timely and
expensive. Automating the claims entry systems
eliminates documentation errors and reduces the
time involved in recording, entering and checking
data entry processes. By increasing the accuracy
of results and data entry efficiency, your staff
can devote more time to caring for patients.
Claims automation also enables you to predict
staffing needs with greater precision. Restored
patient faith No patient enjoys filling out the
same paper forms and waiting long periods of
time, especially patients who are in dire need of
medical attention. Having the capability to
schedule appointments, fill out forms and access
test results online will severely cut down on
long wait times and ease the frustration
associated with the doctor-patient
