Podiatry Practice Management Billing Accelerate your Revenue Cycle with Award-winning Podiatry EHR Integrated with Comprehensive Medical Billing Software

The days of keeping your practice management software  and electronic medical records software separate are over.  It’s time for Podiatry professionals to eliminate the headaches, conflicts, and lost time and revenue resulting from communication errors and system breakdowns between software systems that claim to be working together for you. Integrating your EHR with Practice Management software is probably the most low-risk and cost-effective way to make your practice more efficient and more profitable since it enables DPMs and their staff record patient demographics, manage charge capture, perform billing operations, generate reports and schedule appointments thereby dramatically improving clinical workflow efficiency and boosting reimbursements.

PrognoCIS Podiatry EHR is fully integrated with comprehensive practice management software and therefore provides your practice with a seamless integrated solution you need to eliminate lost productivity while increasing revenue and efficiency. It therefore helps you to optimize revenues with accelerated reimbursements, automated coding recommendations, reduced denials, and increased patient flow.

Here’s how full EHR and practice management integration can benefit your medical practice:

  • Saving in time by cutting out lot of duplicate effort since your office staff will not have to enter the same data twice into separate programs. Practice Management software and EHR will exchange the required data effortlessly and without any errors. The result is an increase in efficiency allowing you to focus more on the pressing needs of your patients. 
  • Improved cashflow by accelerating the claim submission process and reduction in costs by reducing rework involved in dealing with claim rejections and denials as well. Handling denials is very expensive and hurts the bottom-line of the practice.
  • Increase in profits by eliminating the separation between the clinical and administrative sides of the practice, which hinders operational processes due to the use of time-wasting procedures.
  • Enhanced patient communication, leading to improved continuity of care 
  • Automatic creation of real-time claims thereby accelerating your revenue cycle, with charge codes crossing over from the EMR.

Specialty EHR

Best Podiatry EHR with ePrescription Enhance Patient Care & Safety with Certified e-Prescription and Medication Management Options

e-Prescription integrated with Medication Management for Adherence Improves Productivity and Empowers Providers with Timely and Targeted Information

With electronic prescribing, or e-Prescribing, providers enter prescription information into a device such as a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer – and securely transmit data to pharmacies using a software program and connectivity to a transmission network. When a pharmacy receives a request, it fills the medication right away.

Key benefits of our e-Prescription solution include:

  • Ability to send e-prescriptions immediately from your patient’s chart to their desired pharmacy
  • Improved prescription accuracy and reduced medical errors through automatic interaction checks including drug-drug or drug-allergy issues
  • Better connectivity with PACs and labs
  • Reduced risk of controlled substance abuse, particularly pain management medication
  • Lower out-of-pocket cost to patients through access to prescription eCoupon discounts
  • Simplify prescription management for both patients and providers.
  • Immediately access patient medical records, including information about patient medications, prescription history, and allergies

Medication Management for Adherence

  • Medication non-adherence is a national epidemic. Medication non-adherence, sub-optimal prescribing, and improper drug administration cost the U.S over $300 billion annually. More than 20% of an employer’s healthcare cost is caused by non-adherence, with 50% of patients never taking the medication as prescribed.

Medication Management for Adherence from Surescripts is integrated into PrognoCIS Chiropractic EHR. Surescripts analyzes prescription usage data from Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) and funnels relevant information into PrognoCIS. This information empowers physicians to improve adherence by arming them with timely and targeted information.

Podiatry Telehealth Telemedicine Enhance Reach of your Podiatry Practice and Patient Satisfaction with Comprehensive TeleHealth / Telemedicine Software

Our Podiatry EHR offers a Telemedicine solution that integrates seamlessly with our EMR software and is designed to keep your Podiatry practice running smoothly. This interoperabilty provides faster and more accurate diagnoses, improved efficiency in care coordination, quicker treatment, and more.

The main components of the package include:

  1. Web Patient Portal for laptops, tablets and desktops
  2. Telemedicine app with embedded patient portal app
  3. Payment Gateway (Integrity Pays)
  4. Zoom Integration

Uses of Podiatry Telehealth Health

  • Telemedicine visits are useful for simple issues and for providing health education to patients.  They can be used to do patient assessments and evaluations, medication management, treatment planning, post-procedure follow-up.  For example, a patient can send a photo of their bunion to their Podiatrist (asynchronous Podiatry telemedicine service) or go on a video chat with their physician to show an abscess from different angles (synchronous Podiatry telemedicine service).
  • These “virtual” or telemedicine Podiatry visits allow the Podiatrists and patients to interact and communicate in many ways, including: discussion of symptoms, observation/assessment of many physical signs, collection of pertinent data, explanation of test results, communication of diagnoses, discussion of treatment options including medication management, and follow-up to certain procedures.
  • Our Podiatry EMR enables providers to conduct patient consultations through real-time videoconferencing that’s both secure and HIPAA-compliant. 
  • Telemedicine Podiatry visits allow more flexibility, save travel time, and decrease the amount of “downtime” that patients spend in waiting rooms.  More importantly, telemedicine visits lets patients get the care they need while lowering their risk of exposure to contagious diseases during times when social distancing is necessary.

Reimbursement and Coding for TelePodiatry – CMS Guidance

  • Podiatry Telehealth services can be performed in one of two ways:
    • Store and forward (asynchronous): Patient submits an image or pre-recorded video for the physician to review and provide advice, e.g., a patient sends a recorded video of them performing diabetic wound care or a series of photos of their diabetic wound taken over a period of time.
    • Live interactive (synchronous): Real-time two-way interaction between the physician and patient e.g., patient initiates a video chat with the physician to discuss the effects of a particular medication or Podiatry procedure.
  • CMS is providing various waivers and flexibilities designed to help Podiatrists and other health practitioners deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Many of these flexibilities cover provision of care via telemedicine. For example, CMS now also allows Podiatry practitioners to deliver telemedicine services while working from their own home while continuing to bill for these services from their officially enrolled practice location.
  • In addition, Podiatry practitioners can provide consultation services to other physicians via telemedicine. These “eConsultations” can be coded with inter-professional consultation codes for reimbursement by CMS.

Frequently Asked Questions

Podiatry EHR benefits Why Switch over to PrognoCIS Podiatry EHR?

Our Podiatry EHR is used by hundreds of Podiatrists to create, store and manage digital version of patient medical records, reduce paper from their practices and digitize them thereby improving efficiency and patient care while saving money. Podiatry medical care teams comprise of podiatrists, nurses, physician assistants, clinical pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals:

  1. Access to patient information, such as demographics, diagnoses, treatment histories, health benchmarks, allergies, lab results, and medications.

  2. Access to new and past test results among providers in multiple care settings.

  3. Computerized provider order entry to enhance legibility, reduce duplication, and improve the speed with which orders are executed.

  4. Computerized decision-support systems to help improve compliance with best clinical practices, ensure regular screenings and other preventive practices.

  5. Secure electronic communication among providers and patients to improve the continuity of care, increase the timeliness of diagnoses and treatments, and reduce the frequency of adverse events.

  6. Patient access to health records, disease management tools, and health information resources through patient portals.

  7. Computerized administration processes, such as scheduling systems.

  8. Standards-based electronic data storage and reporting for patient safety and disease surveillance efforts.

  9. Optimization of clinical workflows that supports the care teams’ delivery of patient care

Even though Podiatry Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Software and Podiatry Electronic Health Records (EHR) Software are often used interchangeably, there is a fine difference between the two.

While Podiatry EMR Software contains digital record of medical information about an individual that is created, managed, and consulted by clinicians and staff in one medical practice, Podiatry EHR Software contains health information from all providers involved in a patient’s care and provides a broader view of a patient’s care. 

Podiatry EHR also adds the ability to securely share information across the entire healthcare ecosystem including health care systems, networks, and authorized public health agencies in real or near real-time. This includes primary care physician, specialists, pharmacies, laboratories, and emergency facilities, among other providers.

Other features of Podiatry EHR Software include:

  1. Patient portal to view, add to, and manage portions of the health record.
  2. Ability to upload digital images, lab results, and progress notes by all clinicians involves in the patient's care.
  3. Broad spectrum clinical decision support and medication management.
  4. Portable across all sites of care, including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, emergency departments, and outpatient facilities whether in or out of patient's home network.
  5. The ability to monitor and manage population health and quality of care across broad networks and care delivery organizations.

Designed to help Podiatrists improve patient care and reduce costs, Podiatry software systems replace paper records and manual workflows in Podiatry practices with digital files and electronic transmissions.

Adapting a generalized EHR system to your Podiatry practice as a specialist can be time-consuming. It also usually ends up leaving you without many of the features you need to make EHR worthwhile for your practice.

Both Podiatry EHR and EMR systems offer benefits such as:

  • Reduced medical errors and improved quality of care due to instant access to accurate, updated patient information.
  • More complete, legible patient charts.
  • Safer, more reliable prescribing.
  • Increased productivity from custom workflows and templates.

 

 

accicon What are Main Components of Podiatry Medical Software?

Podiatry medical software is comprised of the following major components:

  1. Podiatry EHR Software
  2. Podiatry Practice Management Software
  3. e-Prescription
  4. Telemedicine Software
  5. Patient Portal

accicon Main Features of Podiatry Medical Software

Podiatry Medical Software usually includes the following main features and functionality:

  1. Customized workflow is critical for improving the efficiency of your practice and quality of health care delivered to your patients. Your EHR should let you fully customize the workflow in accordance with the needs of your practice.
  2. Pre-built treatment plans for new and returning patients and customizable SOAP notes templates for specific podiatry issues like Nerve Entrapment, Neuritis, Plantar Fasciitis, etc Includes Orthotics tracking templates for billing purposes.
  3. Podiatry specific drug database that integrates with the provider's workflow and allows the provider to enter prescription information into a computer device – like a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer – and securely transmit the same to pharmacies using a special software program and connectivity to a transmission network.

accicon How to Select the Best Podiatry EHR For Your Needs?

Here is a list of top 10 selection considerations that are important for every Podiatry practice.

1. Select a Fully customizable EHR that puts you in control

Enjoy the flexibility of these essential features with an EHR that can be easily modified to address your clinic’s specific needs, such as:

  • Customizable templates that address podiatry issues and can be used as-is or adjusted on the fly for many procedures including ankle sprain, planter fasciitis, foot fracture, orthotics, and many more. Procedure and surgery templates are available for both minor surgeries and complicated procedures. 
  • Voice and handwriting recognition technology are on-hand to support ease and efficiency of documentation, and helps practitioners focus on patient interaction and assessment.
  • Easy access anywhere any time - cloud-based technology enables access to patient records using a PC, Mac, or tablet. The only requirement is an internet connection and a standard web browser. 
  • Convenient and secure e-Prescribing - enables patients to get medication refills without using a single sheet of paper – and with greater clarity and accuracy. This includes Certified ePrescription for controlled substances.  Electronic checking of drug-drug and drug-food allergies adds an extra layer of protection for the patient.

2. EHR Vendor must offer high quality training that eases the strain of adopting new technology

Providing comprehensive EHR training to providers and clinic staff is vital to success – helping them learn the different aspects of the system and ensuring they’re ready to jump in with both feet starting on day one. The benefits of appropriately training the users of the system include: 

  • Ensuring patient safety – by helping you and your staff know where to document and find important data
  • Optimizing the system’s functionality – by decreasing the frustration of learning by trial and error
  • Achieving Meaningful Use incentives – by giving clinic staff the ability to navigate the different modules and ensure that all Meaningful Use-related data are captured in the documentation

Successful EHR training includes best practices such:

  • Providing an in-house trainer
  • Ensuring that the training is relevant and customized for your specialty

Because users have different learning styles, effective training incorporates various training modalities in the form of:

  • Live in-person training
  • At-the-elbow support during the go-live/implementation
  • Supplemental online or computer-based training

3. Podiatry EHR Vendor must provide top-notch implementation support

Effective end-to-end implementation includes comprehensive analysis of your needs and current processes to ensure minimal disruption. Each practice should have its own Implementation Specialist who can act as a guide and resource person throughout the implementation – from analysis to installation, testing, training, and implementation. Prior to go-live, they ensure that every device is fully connected, tested and configured for maximum efficiency and security.

Ideally, you and your staff should also have access to the following support services:

  • An online Resource Center
  • Unlimited technical support via phone, email, and online chat

4. Selected Podiatry EHR Vendor demonstrates a track record of exceptional customer service support

Small and medium-sized specialty practices need to have access to customer support that understands their specific needs.  There is more to implementing or replacing your EHR than just installation.  Outstanding customer support means that providers and staff always know who to turn to when they need their answers and concerns addressed any time, day or night.

5. Chosen Podiatry EMR is Meaningful Use Certified

Certified and compliant EHR software is a requirement for reimbursement under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The best EHR systems for small practices automate compliance with MU regulations, thus saving you and your team time and effort and enabling you to focus more on patient care.

Podiatry practices can be successful in value-based care reimbursement models by leveraging EHR software that:

  • Streamlines the end users’ workflows
  • Enables patient care coordination
  • Improves patient engagement, and
  • Supports health data exchange

6. Podiatry EMR provides actionable data at your fingertips

One of the advantages of EHRs over paper is the ability to continuously collect, sort, and organize data, even outside of office hours.  At any given time, you can make a few clicks and access a “dashboard” in your EHR that displays important statistics about your patients or your practice. These reports can be about productivity, billing, and regulatory compliance. They can be customized based on your practice’s workflows and needs. 

Analytics gives providers and staff the real-time ability to:

  • Track patients
  • Identify trends that reflect the quality of care
  • Monitor the practice’s compliance to MACRA and other reimbursement-related criteria

7.  Podiatry EHR  Implementation must result in more satisfied patients

EHRs improve waiting and turnaround times through:

  • Online booking via a Patient Portal that allows patients to select the most convenient time for them to visit the office
  • Appointment reminders that help patients remember when they are supposed to get to the clinic, which increase engagement and decrease the incidence of no-shows

The right EHR solution enables providers to conduct patient consultations through real-time videoconferencing that’s both secure and HIPAA-compliant. 

These “virtual” telemedicine visits allows physicians and patients to interact and communicate in the following ways:

  • discussion of symptoms
  • observation/assessment of many physical signs
  • collection of pertinent data
  • explanation of test results
  • communication of diagnoses
  • discussion of treatment options
  • provision of prescriptions

Telemedicine consultations are useful for simple medical issues and for providing health education.  They allow more flexibility, save travel time, and lessens “downtime” spent in waiting rooms. 

More importantly, telemedicine visits lets patients get the care they need while lowering their risk of exposure to contagious diseases during times when social distancing is necessary. 

8. Patient Data is both secure and easy to share when needed

The challenge is two-fold:

  • Seamless sharing of data with other care providers
  • Ensuring that sharing is done in a secure manner

Podiatry EHR software makes it possible to do the following without worrying about security issues:

  • Communicate with other facilities or providers about patient care
  • Route specific records or information
  • Send letters of recommendation or referral
  • Bill insurance companies

The ability to use the EHR for referrals allows you to:

  • Ensure that patients receives necessary follow-up care
  • Prevent issues and problems from falling through the cracks when patients transitions from one care provider to another

9. Helps increase revenue capture

Podiatry EHR that is fully integrated with the Practice Management Software increases and streamlines the efficiency of your clinic’s operations, giving you and your staff the freedom to focus on patient care and spend less time on administrative activities and tasks. 

Having this integration includes the following benefits:

  • The billing process is easier and more efficient because ICD codes are assigned to each complaint within the Podiatry EHR
  • Reimbursements become faster, as encounters can be easily converted to billable EDI and paper claims.
  • Built-in evaluation and management (E&M) coding improves accuracy, offering providers the assurance that the appropriate level of service has been charged.

This feature provides Podiatry practices with a tool to confirm ICD-10 and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes associated with the patient diagnosis, and communicate directly with the billing software to provide faster and more complete payment.

  • End-to-end support from claim submission to payment posting and AR Management results in cost reduction, increased payments, and positive return on investment (ROI).

10. Podiatry Software includes right features for your clinic size and is fairly priced

Small clinics often have limited budget allocated for EHR software and the associated hardware and infrastructure costs.  Because of this, they may opt for the most affordable choices.  For these practices, a cloud-based EHR that doesn’t require the purchase of expensive on-site servers and networks is the most reasonable and attractive option.

Medium sized practices with up to 10 or so providers may require EHR that can support multi-clinician access and specialty-specific EHR functionalities and tools.  They might also need reporting and analytics tools as well as more comprehensive training needs for the clinicians and their support staff.   

Software and Hardware Considerations:

  • Cloud-based EHRs require smaller upfront costs and are much less expensive to maintain than systems that need the installation of on-site servers.
  • Hardware requirements need to be included in the budget considerations:
    1. Desktops – often the least expensive option and are easy to use
    2. Laptops – more portable than desktops
    3. Tablets – increasingly popular choice, as they provide screen space almost comparable to laptops, and are easier to carry.
    4. Smartphones – gaining more usage since it’s the most portable option. The much smaller screen space and battery limits pose an ongoing challenge.   

Price Considerations

  • Server-based EHRs often have license, set-up, and upgrade fees that result in total costs which may be too exorbitant for most practices.
  • Cloud-based EHRs usually involve only a monthly fee.
  • Not all cloud-based EHRs are created or priced equally. There are other direct and indirect costs to implementing an EHR. It would be helpful to have a checklist and have a comprehensive discussion with vendors regarding these costs.

accicon How can Podiatry EHR System Benefit Podiatry Practices?

Benefits of Podiatry EHRs exist for both Podiatry practices and their patients. Almost half of all providers give their EHR an eight out of 10 on satisfaction scores. There are five primary categories of benefits of EHR adoption that extend to both patients and providers, including:

  • Improved patient treatment across the care continuum.
  • Improved care coordination and faster access to records.
  • Practice efficiencies and cost savings through decreased paperwork and elimination of workflow redundancies.
  • Increase patient participation and transparency.
  • Improved diagnostics and patient outcomes including more accurate prescribing and higher patient satisfaction scores.

Additional advantages of EHR adoption are less paperwork, fewer storage issues, and increased efficiency and productivity. Learn more about the benefits of EHRs.

accicon Benefits of Podiatry EHR

  • Streamline patient workflow: Pharmacy orders, referrals, immediate chart completion and more make work-flow more efficient
  • Customizable Templates: Most Podiatry EMR systems come preloaded with templates for typical Podiatry encounters. These can be further customized by individual practices to meet their unique Podiatry EHR needs.
  • Cost-savings: Significant reduction in supply costs related to medical records as well as the ability to reclaim file room space. Reduce personnel time in chart filing and pulling and finding.

  • Vaccine and allergy alerts are kept current and visible reduces liability exposure

  • Healthcare provider automatically drives charges through coding - eliminates delays in insurance filings, lost charges and speeds cash flow up.

However, Podiatrists have an important choice to make in switching to a Podiatry EMR - should they buy a system that resides on their practice server or use a cloud based internet service provider, a model know as Software as a Service or SaaS.

accicon Benefits of Podiatry Software as a Service

  • Software as a Service does not require a major investment in hardware to run your Podiatry EMR. Notebooks, netbooks and tablets will work well with these cloud based systems. If you can connect to the Internet you can access the system.

  • No ongoing costs for computer maintenance or software upgrades.

  • The monthly subscription costs can be taken as a business expense the year they are incurred. Major hardware and software investments have to be capitalized and amortized over many years.

  • Redundancy: Should the server in the cloud go down, there is a second and even third host that has your Podiatry electronic health records backed up and you will be redirected flawlessly. But, if your office server goes down, you are stuck until it is fixed.

  • HIPAA compliant: Podiatry EHR SaaS transactions are encrypted and comply with HIPAA requirements.

  • Instant savings come with Podiatry electronic health records as your practice no longer needs to purchase all the paper supplies needed to maintain paper records. In addition, space devoted to record storage can be freed up and put to clinical use.

  • Twenty-four/seven accessibility is possible since the portal is Internet based. You can even check or update a patient's medical record from the hospital when you make hospital rounds.

  • Scalability: whether you operate a solo practice or are part of a large group practice, the cloud based Podiatry EMR is scalable to your operation. It can also be expanded easily to accommodate new providers as they join your practice.

  • SaaS systems are usually already accepted for "meaningful use."

accicon How Do Podiatry EHR Systems Improve the Quality of Care Delivered by Medical Practices?

Podiatry EHR systems can positively impact the quality of care Podiatrists provide to their patients by improving portability, sharing, decision-making, and care coordination; getting patients involved in their care; and reducing workloads. According to HealthIT.gov, 75 percent of providers report that their EHR allows them to deliver better patient care.

Data shared in an Podiatry EHR can assist Podiatrists in choosing the right medication for a patient with allergies and improving public health outcomes by enabling them to look more meaningfully at patient data. It also allows them to be better informed, improve relationships with multidisciplinary physician team members, procure remote access to patient charts, and more quickly and easily receive laboratory results, medication error alerts, and reminders for preventive care.

 

accicon When do Podiatrists need to replace their Podiatry EMR?

Dissatisfaction with EHRs continues to rise at an accelerated pace and has prompted physician burnout, which in turn can create more patient safety problems. Many healthcare practices are looking to make the most of their EHRs through optimization efforts, while others are starting all over with replacement systems. EHR optimization is the process of fine tuning an EHR to meet a practice’s individual needs and to improve clinical productivity and efficiency.

Although there are many factors prompting healthcare providers to optimize their EHR, each physician practice must determine if this option is right for them. A publication from the National Learning Consortium suggests that practices determine the need for optimization by addressing the following questions:  

  • Are users complaining? Such complaints are often a sign of the need for new approaches to help users overcome concerns.
  • Are workarounds being used? If users are leveraging workarounds instead of using the system as intended, that is often a sign of dissatisfaction.
  • Is the EHR being leveraged appropriately? Adoption statistics such as user log-ins, volume of dictation, printer usage, number of handwritten forms and staff overtime could shed light on the level of EHR use.
  • Are goals being met? Lack of goal achievement relative to patient safety and quality improvement often points to underlying EHR utilization issues.
