Case Study: How Premier OBGYN Increased Profits for Medical Practice

Background: Premier OBGYN has been operating for over 10 years. Six years ago, they made the switch to eClinicalWorks®, one of the top EHR/PM systems.

The Challenge:  During their growth as a Medical Practice, overseeing the billing department plus other areas pertaining to the business of medicine became overwhelming. Premier required a solution that would allow them to focus their talents and strengths on the patient’s experience and care and still increase profits for the medical practice.

Premier’s administrator, in aligning her practice with key resources,  had already outsourced payroll, human resources, and legal issues.  Her next goal was to determine if adding the revenue cycle management/billing process to that list was practical.

Their consultant recommended the following guidelines when searching for an RCM vendor.

  1.     Length of time in business / references
  2.     Level of experience with our EMR/PM (eClinicalWorks®)
  3.     Location; We prefer a local vendors as we do with legal and accounting services.

The Transition: Based upon several recommendations, Premier reached out to Mr. Richard Maynard, CEO of MedBiz Partners Inc. located in Palm Harbor, FL with their concerns.  Mr. Maynard and his team are not only Certified ECW PM Trainers, but their RCM services platform is 100 % eClinicalWorks® and have been in operation for over 24 years.

Premier minimized the changes internally by first selecting the MedBiz Assist program which enabled them to keep our billing/coders in house for the time being and all insurance posting, and denial management would be handled by MedBiz.

The Results: The MedBiz team connected to our eClincialWorks® system within 72 hours, and incoming revenue increased by 25 % within the first 60 days.

In summary, the paradigm shift the practice made in smart sourcing key task created a stable and profitable medical practice for our practice.

eClinicalWorks® Tip of the Month Efficient Treatment Order Entry

Tip #1. Save time selecting a patient’s lab or radiology company. Set practice or patient-level settings to automatically default a specific lab or radiology company based on practice preference (practice defaults), insurance company preference (EMR—Labs, DI & Procedures), or patient preference (patient demographics).

Tip #2. Take advantage of some built-in features. Utilize order sets and eCliniSense to quickly get to orders that you commonly prescribe for a patient that are triggered by a specific diagnosis. Create lab, diagnostic image and procedures “Favorites” lists and copy to other providers and staff through, “Misc. Configuration Options.”

Tip #3. Prepare ahead of time. Create a pre-clinic workflow where the provider, or someone else, reviews patient charts from the upcoming schedule. Preload orders that are routine for that patient or for that visit type. Don’t forget to make use of pre-set templates that contain orders and merge them into progress notes during pre-clinic, or during the patient encounter. Templates can also be configured to automatically populate into a note by tying them to a chief complaint.

Tip #4. Configure defaults for orders per user. From the lab, and then the diagnostic image and procedures order screens in treatment, click on the, “My Defaults” button to set preferences for default location (in-house vs. send out), search filter (contains vs. starts with), and set “Favorites” as a default, if desired.

Tip #5. Maximize efficiency on the fly. Set up lab and diagnostic image aliases with acronyms (MMA—Male Medicare Annual, for example), so that users can choose to search by “alias name,” instead of “order name.” Once the acronym is entered, all the orders configured in that alias will drop into the orders. Also, when repeating a lab or radiology order for a patient, click on the “previous orders” button near the top right—make sure the company is selected as “All”—and click on any individual previous orders to quickly re-order them.
