Technological innovation within the healthcare industry continues to grow and evolve. Likewise, technological processes play an increasing role in the industry as a whole, affecting every aspect of patient care from the time of patient registration to data management to billing and labs. With the increase in technological advances, there is to the same degree an increased need for software integration to ensure these copious platforms communicate seamlessly with each other. This process of integration among multiple technologies is known as “seamless technology”.

It’s been a long journey with our Physician community. Practice has changed dramatically – where fewer physicians are entering private practice and diminished physician control is the major trend. We have always been ahead of the trend, with solutions required by physicians to stay successful in private practice. We have managed to keep our software productive with minimal disruption during regulation mandated changes. We are proud to have collected over 99% of contracted rates across the board. We have built lasting relationships and continue to cherish them!CONTINUE READING
It is tough to remain an Independent Physician today. There always seems to be a pressure added to the medical practice that has nothing to do with caring for your patient. The good news is that there is software to improve office efficiency, improve claim submission and increase revenue. There are also out-sourced third party companies whose core competency is related to their work e.g. billing, collections, payroll, credentialing, HIPAA compliance, etc. and quite often they can perform the service for a lower cost than you can do in the office.CONTINUE READING
For the past five years the team at Glenwood has been writing about ways to improve your medical practice earnings. We’ve talked about the dynamically changing marketplace, free EMR, Transparency Disclosure, better collections by integrating clinical and billing software, automation, Transparency Disclosure, 5010, ICD-10, patient customer service, private practice to employed physicians, practice processes designed to help those physicians still in private practice improve their collection rate and bottom line profits, and many more issues.CONTINUE READING
External market drivers are thrusting change upon you and there are some big decisions to make. If you are still in private practice, then you are one of the “proud and the brave.” Administrative requirements and revenue restrictions continue to plague the private practice physician. In fact, many of your colleagues have decided that it is easier to be an employed physician and have left private practice to work for someone else. It is, in my opinion, a shame that the entrepreneurial spirit of the U.S. physician is being challenged so severely.CONTINUE READING
A leading industry publication recently stated that 30% of current EHR users are actively looking to change EHR software products and a much higher % are dissatisfied with the product they are using. No doubt the rush to claim a piece of the Transparency Disclosure Incentive has caused physicians to implement a product that isn’t truly suited to their practice needs and specialty.CONTINUE READING
Cash flow is an emotional issue; it is the basis from which an economic enterprise operates efficiently and profitably. Yet too many medical practice owners don’t want to be involved in the details of financial management required to keep cash flowing smoothly, especially if it requires asking patients for money.CONTINUE READING
This famous quote by Lewis Carroll could have been written for a great many medical practices today. Our industry is changing dramatically. Information, the need for information, misinformation, technology, security, privacy, third parties, regulations and economic events all have an impact on the operation of your medical practice today.CONTINUE READING
