Faster medical record scanning and indexing benefits your cash flow
A slow medical records scanning and indexing process often leaves documents waiting for days—or even weeks—before getting indexed. That means the billing codes they contain remain unprocessed. Assuming you still manage to meet the deadlines, the filing delay creates a waiting period for your reimbursements to come through. And, administrative issues with a request cause even longer delays.
Meanwhile, your vendors expect to be paid on time. It’s easy to wind up with money is going out faster than it’s coming in. That’s why it’s imperative to file your records as quickly as possible.
After relying on manual indexing for so long, it might seem like your only option. Or, maybe you’ve tried speeding things up, only to realize it’s easier said than done. And you’re right. Without the proper support, it’s nearly impossible to create filing processes fast enough to meet your needs.
That’s because manual indexing is limited by the speed of your team. Their hectic schedules don’t allow much time to enter each document by hand. When administrators do focus on filing, they work so frantically that human error becomes a major concern. Mistakes will happen. And when they do, patient care and collections both take a hit.
