EHR and RCM Solutions for Orthopedic Surgeons
  • Value-based care is all about improving patient
    experiences and outcomes, and that is one reason
    why most healthcare providers are turning to
    electronic health records (EHR) and other
    software solutions so that their practices do
    well, or at least thrive in today's highly
    competitive atmosphere. Going forward, physicians
    can expect to be paid based on their performance,
    which has to match that of their peers in quality
    as well as cost.
  • Orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic billing
    service providers looking for EHR solutions need
    to keep in mind following 3 important points
  • Being Accessible at all times
  • Among all the specialties, it is probably
    orthopedic and orthopedic surgeons who are on the
    go most of the time. They are either meeting
    their patients or studying the X-rays of their
    patients and getting back to them for offering
    further advice. This is indeed a time-consuming
    process, and the need of the day is a solution
    that lets them to document their observations
    while on the go. Something that is cloud-based
    and can be accessed on the Smartphone or iPad
    would certainly be handy. There are several
    solutions that can be accessed remotely by
    orthopedic surgeons and Orthopedic billing
    companies to make their tasks easier.

2. Quality Clinical Documentation   According
to CMS' Merit-Based-Incentive-Payment system, all
practices will be graded on scores ranging from 0
to 100 depending on four important criteria, one
of which is clinical documentation. The
incentives that the practices earn will solely
depend on the scores, and if they fail to meet
the minimum they may even be penalized. All
payment adjustments will be paid out only in
2019, which will be determined on the performance
throughout 2017. Orthopedic surgeons who deserve
will certainly get their due. However, orthopedic
billing vendors should note that it will be
difficult to establish the clinical quality of
documentation unless EHR is up to date. 3.
Broad-based Interface Orthopedic billing and
coding companies realize the importance of
interoperability, which is an important issue in
health IT. Several orthopedic billing companies
and other organizations have been emphasizing the
importance of working on a vendor-neutral
platform where there is a common interface that
allows access to physicians, orthopedic billing
companies, and other related organizations
operating from various locations remotely.

Common Well Health Alliance is already working
on such a platform. Surgeons will be able to
access patients' health information that can be
stored on various EHR systems. Going forward,
orthopedic surgeons may even be able to automate
data entry with consummate ease and will be able
to do it on mobile patient portals that can be
accessed from anywhere at any time. Medical
Billers and Coders (MBC) is a leading medical
billing company providing complete RCM services.
