Control Claim Flow Visually Using Radar Software
Do you worry about insurance claims payment delays? Peace of mind is hard to come by when you don’t have control over your chiropractic claims process since this affects your practice cash flow negatively.
If you cannot track and predict your cash flow easily your business is doomed to die. To make matters worse, you drive away patients when you are stressed out, which further hinders the growth of your chiropractic clinic. Ultimately, you cannot achieve any long-term profitability without sufficient growth.
Since seeing patients is your priority, you can’t make time to micromanage each chiropractic billing aspect. Addressing the large amount of failing or rejected claims is virtually impossible with limited resources. Nevertheless, you need to follow up on your chiropractic claims to avoid reduced cash flow for your practice.
Inconsistent and ineffective chiropractic billing performance can have many culprits including incompetent or untrained staff. But no one can adequately keep track and follow up on all underpaid and denied claims without effective chiropractic software. However, not correcting these claims can affect the entire practice negatively since they will be forgotten and as such increase the percentage of your AR past 120 days. In fact, you need to track your active claims backlog in order to evaluate your chiropractic billing performance and AR.
Managing a chiropractic office is a balancing act of multiple Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), though. It can be challenging to prioritize tasks as many chiropractors tackle easy problems first before they focus on more important matters. Instead of just putting out random fires you need to see the big picture consistently if you want to improve your claims workflow management and chiropractic billing performance. In order to do that you need a centralized organization of tasks and performance. Hence, it is vital to choose the right chiropractic software functionality.
Naturally, your practice has a unique workflow that can only be supported by configurable and customizable chiropractic software. Yet, learning new chiropractic software can be a hassle many chiropractors would rather avoid. For that reason you should focus on ease of use for workflow management when evaluating possible chiropractic software solutions for your office. Moreover, all data should be displayed in an easy to digest way so you can complete a meaningful analysis on your own without wading through long and boring text reports.
You should be able to look at multiple aspects of your practice at once, just like the snapshot Genesis’ Practice Health Monitor (a.k.a Radar) provides. To improve teamwork every member of your staff can also see this Radar chart on Genesis’ Home page every time they log on. You don’t need to waste time on compiling your practice stats, including claims status since data collection is automated. Furthermore, you and your staff can monitor trends to detect any problem areas before they cripple your practice performance.
In order to track your practice performance over time and measure any improvements, you only need to customize your workflow KPIs. Genesis’ daily radar analysis and consistent follow ups in form of monthly Health Checks with your Coach further provide support to help you reach your goals.
