If you are looking for a way to place your medical practice in a position to be successful, you need to think about things you can do to save time and possibly money. Even though your primary focus is helping patients, you may be able to see more patients in a single day if you increase the efficiency of your medical practice. This can help you generate new revenue sources, making it easier for you to pump more resources back into your medical practice. That is how you can do the maximum amount of good for the local community. Take a look at a few activities you should focus on if you want to improve the efficiency of your practice.
1. Save Time Entering Notes With Transcription and Scribe Services
If you are still entering notes into your EHR by hand, it is time to explore a more efficient option. Your primary focus should be seeing patients. That’s why you need to work with a transcription team that can help you. If someone else can focus on entering your notes into the system, you can spend more of your time with your patients.
For example, you may want to work with scribes who can help you save time by documenting your notes. You can use a scribe service provider with the clinical training and experience necessary to help you accurately enter notes into the medical system. That way, when the documentation is complete at the time of visit a bill can be generated to the insurance company. Also, you will not have to spend time after hours doing clerical work.
2. Rely on Professionals To Verify Insurance
You deserve to get paid for your work, but should your practice staff take time away from their day-to-day to spend time calling the insurance company to verify a patient’s insurance status? This is a time-consuming task that can easily be outsourced to a professional team instead. For example, you may want to partner with Data Matrix Medical as we have trained and experienced teams that can help you reach out to insurance companies and verify each patient’s insurance status. Furthermore, a professional team helps you figure out what type of insurance plan the patient has, allowing you to define what is covered and what is not. This can make it easier for you to decide on treatment plans while also providing the best possible level of care to each patient. Not to mention, on average 63% of patient claim denials are from ineffectively verifying insurance eligibility. With DataMatrix Medicals’ insurance verification services, you can increase your claim approvals.
3. Invest in Voicemail Transcription Services
Do you have patients who regularly call the office, leaving messages with questions and concerns? It can take a long time for your team to listen to the messages, and then call the patient back. It would be easier to simply read the voicemail transcription in your EHR and take the proper action requested.
If you decide to work with Data Matrix Medical, you get access to a team that can listen to your voicemail messages for you and enters them directly into the EHR. Furthermore, all systems are HIPAA-compliant, meaning that you can protect the privacy of your patients even as your voicemail messages are turned into actionable tasks that can be tracked.

You can save a significant amount of time by partnering with DataMatrix Medical as we can review your documents, index them, and place them in the right category in your medical record.
