Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.

A local primary care physician or a doctors office would want to run it's billing and scheduling off of a Medical practice software (often called an EMR), as it turns out it's useful for that accounting software to also keep patient medical records.

It's good to know that EMR finally got its certification. A friend shared with me the meaningful use of EMR. Her mother who lives in Atlanta often sees her doctor and my friend who's a kind son; pay all her mother's medical bills. Being away from each other wasn't easy, so to learn more about her mother's condition and the bill, the doctor sends to him via email her Mom's EMR. And it is good that the program also has medical billing service which helps him a lot in paying the bills in no time.

As much as three quarters of hospital staff are usually burdened with some sort of billing-related work in a traditional billing system. Opting for electronic medical billing solutions (ones that come with free EMR plans) that fit easily into the healthcare business' workflow are key to freeing up staff resources.
