The Medical Software Associates encounterManager practice
management software system offers a broad array of robust features to
enable you to better manage your medical practice down to the smallest
detail. Here are more of encounterManager's features:
The Expression Builder - While the reporting features of the encounterManager
are vast, and include over 180 reports, the Expression Builder allows
you to query your data without the need for expensive data mining software.
And, once your new query has been recorded, the data it generates can
be viewed, printed and brought into Microsoft WordŽ for letter and label
Paperless Office Features - With Charting Plus, our EMR product
of choice, you get a seamless electronic medical records system integrated
into two distinct areas of encounterManager practice
management systems. With this feature, any demographic information
entered into the billing system will automatically be carried over to
the Charting Plus EMR system, which prevents duplicate data entry. As
physicians create their patient diagnosis notes, services are automatically
coded, and upon completion, an E&M wizard suggests the appropriate E&M
level to bill for based on the information obtained. These charges can
then be easily carried over to your billing system.
The overall effect is that incorrect or missed billings are virtually
eliminated, and your claims will now always go out correctly the first
time so that your practice receives the reimbursements it deserves in
a timely manner. Based on recent statistics, practices which use an Electronic
Medical Records system with an automatic coder increase their billings
by 25% with supporting documentation to justify any charges and pass audits.
No Closeouts - With encounterManager practice
management applications, there is no need for lengthy daily, monthly
or annual close outs, which saves weeks worth of processing time annually.
And, you do not have to archive data to generate reports for your prior
accounting periods - the physician
billing system does this for you!
Instant Help - For each and every data field in the encounterManager
practice management software system, there is a help window available.
These windows are also customizable to meet your practice requirements.
Robust User Tracking - With encounterManager, you can track individual
users easily, as each user is granted a unique username and password which
ensures that the system can time and date stamp each transaction completed
by practice staff. The username system allows for various security level
settings, which depend on preference and/or job description. Reports are
also available for each user ID, to ensure the system is being used correctly.
Image Management - The encounterManager system offers you the ability
to scan documents and attach them directly to a patients file. This frees
up time resources, as staff members do not have to leave their desk to
look up insurance cards, EOB, driver's license or demographics sheets,
among other documents. To aid in diagnoses, you can also store a digital
photograph of the patient and chart progress.
Telephony - When equipped with Reminder Pro, our outbound medical
telephony product, you can automate appointment reminders to occur on
a timely basis, at any time of the day. Reminder Pro automatically calls
your patients to remind them of upcoming appointments, which can dramatically
reduce no-shows and greatly improve the efficiency of your staff.
Electronic Claims and Statements - With encounterManager's electronic
claims and statements functions, you can send any claims or statements
electronically, and save the labor and costs of the paper-trail process.
We also provide the ability to do pre-certifications and verify coverage
benefits online with supporting insurance carriers.
The encounterManager practice management software system was developed
with the basic objective to minimize practice paperwork, maximize efficiency
and optimize the audit and paper trail of your accounts receivable system.
