Kareo EMR is one of the top medical billing software programs for small to medium-sized practices. It integrates with Quest Diagnostics and Surescripts, includes a patient portal, and offers customizable reports. However, it is not the only software to help practices keep track of their revenue cycle.
Integrates with Quest Diagnostics
Quest Diagnostics has a comprehensive suite of tools for medical practitioners to help them manage and track patient health information. The software enables physicians and other staff to easily order and receive lab tests. The software also integrates with Quest’s lab services. When billing issues came up, the office’s billing manager, Misty Miraballes, decided to call Quest Diagnostics for a solution. Quest Diagnostics offered Quanum Practice Management and Quanum Revenue Cycle Management.
Founded in 1967, Metropolitan Pathology Laboratory became Quest Diagnostics in 1997. The company is headquartered in Madison, New Jersey, and also has operations in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and India. The company also offers an EHR solution, Care360, which integrates with Quest’s medical billing and patient scheduling modules.
Integrates with Surescripts
Axxess has announced an integration with Surescripts, a nationwide health information network. Surescripts helps healthcare providers connect with each other in order to improve patient care and reduce costs. Its platform supports electronic transmission of clinical information and medication information. It also enables physicians to conduct REMS enrollment processes and provide patient support services.
The Surescripts integration enables users to electronically send a PA Request to a prescriber. The request is sent without transaction charges. The pharmacy can now also send a reminder on the printing of Patient Leaflets with multiple labels. This prompt is only displayed if the pharmacy’s settings indicate that it should be displayed.
Has a patient portal
Kareo EMS can streamline the way you do business with an extensive feature set. Its central dashboard gives you a clear view of all patient appointments and workflows throughout the day. The clinical workflow displays three buckets of patient data and information. It also integrates with Surescripts to populate prescriptions from the past 12 months. It also has bidirectional interfaces with LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics. The patient portal provides secure messaging and appointment reminders.
The patient portal helps patients make appointments, update information, and receive prescription refills. This feature also allows users to send messages to patients, update information, and participate in polls or surveys. The patient portal lets users share and manage their patient information, and it automatically generates patient statements.
Has customizable reports
Kareo’s e-prescribing functionality is unique in that you can select the active medications for a patient and add new prescriptions. This feature is not available in most rival medical billing software packages. The system also allows you to create recurring appointments and add patient intake and consent forms. The software will automatically fill in all the necessary information for each visit, and it includes features to automate and streamline the process of re-booking. It is also compatible with telemedicine capabilities.
Kareo’s system also offers customizable reports. Its reporting engine is built to provide a comprehensive overview of your practice’s performance. You can use filters to narrow down reports to specific metrics and download them in Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel formats. Each report has a description explaining its purpose. In addition, most reports can be customized and filtered by payer scenario or provider.
Does not charge clearinghouse fees
Kareo offers a comprehensive medical billing outsourcing plan, which includes charge entry, coding, claims scrubbing, and submission through a clearinghouse. It also offers revenue cycle services, such as chasing unpaid claims and managing denials. The software also allows for comprehensive reporting, including patient statements and collections. Kareo also offers a service that handles out-of-pocket expenses.
Kareo charges a monthly subscription fee, which is based on the volume of billing transactions and provider characteristics. Kareo sends customers a 30-day electronic notice if the price changes. Subscription pricing is based on the volume of billing transactions and the volume of electronic claims processed.
