The healthcare technology space is constantly impacted by regulatory change (e.g., Meaningful Use, HIE, ACO, HIPAA and P4P requirements), evolving healthcare standards (e.g., HL7, ICD-10, XDS/XDSi), and innovations in technology (e.g. HTML5, MVC 4.0, healthcare mobile app development, cloud computing, etc). Healthcare organizations are under constant pressure to improve quality of care while also reducing costs.
Medical billing processes are complex and are becoming increasingly sophisticated. They also require the cooperation of a number of different employees, working on their own and in concert to gather the information necessary to receive the correct reimbursement from the right sources for each patient.
A health care practitioner is one having the authority or license to provide curative or preventive health care services to individuals or communities in an organized and methodical way in the field of medicine, obstetrics, pharmacy, nursing, pediatrics, clinical psychology or other associated sectors. The quality of service provided by health care practitioners is strictly monitored by the state authorities on the basis of pre-fixed rules and regulations. The state has the right to judge the actions of the health care providers, and seize their license in case they are found to violate any of the rules. In such circumstances, it is the responsibility of the state to provide the Board of Medical Examiners the name and the action details of the concerned health care provider for the implementation of necessary actions.
An electronic health record (EHR) refers to a system that supports the storage of patient health information in an electronic digital data format in order to provide more efficient and advanced patient health care. It is extremely important to hire the services of a reputed and knowledgeable firm, which has the reputation of using the highest quality tools and advanced technologies in transferring data from document to electronic digital format. Patient health information generally includes patient demographics, health problems, progress reports, medications, medical history, immunizations and laboratory and radiology reports. The term EHR is often used to describe the software system that handles patient records preserved by a hospital or medical practice.
