Speech therapy EMR has changed the way that speech therapists and clinic managers are handling day-to-day activities in their facilities. In fact, it’s made things significantly easier for them altogether. But when you consider how speech therapy EMR software has made it possible for them to perform all of their billing, scheduling, and documentation in a singular software—it just makes sense. In this article, we’ll be taking a closer look at exactly how speech therapy EMR makes practice management easier.
Easy access to speech therapy patient history
Every clinic talks about how they offer patient focused care. But, what better way is there to demonstrate their commitment to the cause than by creating a separate client profile for each of their patients?
If creating a client profile is one of the easiest things that you can do in Practice Perfect, then checking out their patient history has to be the second easiest. The ‘Activities by Service’ screen provides users with a comprehensive list of all every single treatment or service charge, invoice, and payment associated with this patient. And as you know, it’s extremely important to keep this kind of information at hand.
Direct billing with speech therapy EMR software
The best part about using an integrated speech therapy EMR solution is that you’re able to bill directly from it. Practice Perfect integrates with a number of third-party billing systems and has demonstrated its ability to simplify claims submissions on countless occasions.
If you’re a Canadian clinic using Practice Perfect, you’ll be pleased to know that we integrate with a large number of regional healthcare insurers. For example, in Ontario, we integrate with OHIP and HCAI, to name a few. And for our B.C. clients, you’ll be pleased to know that we are integrated with Teleplan.
If you’re an American clinic using Practice Perfect, then you’re already aware of how easy it is to integrate with your clearinghouse and prepare the required clinical documents for submissions. Whether it’s the HCFA-1500 or an EDI-837, Practice Perfect gives you the ability to produce these types of invoices with the click of a button.
Flexible scheduling with speech therapy EMR software
Electronic scheduling for SLPs has come a long way since its inception. In the beginning, electronic calendars merely reported the date and the time. But as the years went by, their functionality grew and they began incorporating more and more features.
Today, Practice Perfect users are getting a completing a lot of tasks from the ‘Scheduler’. For instance, they’re able to enter charges, send appointment reminders, generate invoices and receipts without ever leaving the ‘Scheduler’.
It’s also become really easy to make changes to your schedule on the fly. For example, you can use the ‘Waiting List’ to be automatically reminded when an opening becomes available and you have a patient who’s been trying to fit into that time slot. Or if an appointment is running a little longer than expected, all you need to do is click and drag the appointment cell to adjust the duration.
