AMBULANCE/EMS BILLING SOFTWARE
The Ambulance/EMS Billing software package is designed to be user-friendly with easy to read screens that present the information in a common sense format. It handles all the information and process necessary to bill for ambulance service. For ease of use the software is divided into individual windows for all the major functions that are required to perform the billing process.
The Event window is designed to provide the user a quick and easy way to get an overview of the history of a patient's claims. All runs, invoices, payments, write-offs, etc. are listed to provide a complete picture. You can easily navigate to any of these events with just a couple of mouse clicks or keyboard characters. Certain actions such as payments, write-offs, denials, etc. can also be done from this window very quickly.
The Patient Demographic window is used to maintain all of a persons personal information, such as name, date of birth, social security number, etc. Also on this screen is the address information, which allows for tracking as many addresses as needed, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, insurance information (including proper order for billing), family or other relationships, etc. Physicians, crew members, etc can also be entered here.
The Ambulance Run window gathers all the pertinent information needed to successfully bill insurance and the patient including dates and times of service, transportation type, condition codes (ICD-9), signature tracking, billing narratives, charges, and crew members. If you are using a NEMSIS compliant ePCR system then much of the patient and run information can be imported to eliminate the time of manual entry and minimize keying errors.
The Invoice window allows for creation of an easily understood Patient invoice or insurance filing by either a printed CMS 1500 form or placed into a standard EDI 837p file for electronic submission. Much of the information needed for filing claims will populate automatically from the patient demographic and ambulance run windows.
The Master/EOB Payment window allows the user to enter payments for multiple claims. Electronic Remittance files can be imported and posted very quickly. Paper EOBs can also be posted manually by selecting the each claim and filing in the appropriate payment, allowed amount, write-off, etc. The optional automatic creation of an invoice to the next payer can expedite the subsequent billing process.
The Ambulance/EMS Billing Software also includes many other functions such as maintaining master accounts for billing contracts for the VA or nursing homes, creating various reports including Accounts Receivable, Payment Register, Revenue Analysis, Account Management, etc. and the importing of data from ePCR systems using the NEMSIS/XML format standard.
The software can be installed in almost any environment since the Hardware Requirements for running Harrison Software are minimal by today's PC standards.
