If anything defines the role that ONCOCHART plays in the treatment cycle, it is with Charge Capture and Billing.
Radiation Oncology is the most complex, compliance driven discipline in modern medicine, and as such, has created revenue problems for many practitioners. Many centers leave an extraordinary amount of money “on the table”, with estimates ranging to 20%.
The principal causes behind these problems include…
- Failure to capture all valid procedures
- Failure to recognize a billable event
- Failure to recognize “edit” conflicts
- Failure to link appropriate codes
- Failure to unbundle codes
- Failure to attach appropriate extensions
ONCOCHART utilizes the full scope of CCI Edits to ensure that these potential revenue draining scenarios do not occur. Every charge is automatically validated against the full list of CCI Edits at the time of capture. If the validation produces an unfavorable result, the user is warned and shown any corrective steps needed.
The Billing Manager uses the screen shown above in order to forward charges to the billing service. By pressing the “Transmit to Billing” button, the charges are electronically transmitted to any HL7-compliant software.
