Join Frank Long, editorial director of Rehab Management, as he speaks with John Wallace, physical therapist, and chief executive officer of BMS Practice Solutions, Upland Calif.
After the initial transition from paper, many clinics see an uptick in efficiencies that trigger several months of savings before flattening out. The real genius of switching to practice management software, however, is in developing the ability to create cleaner claims and require less reworking of patient accounts so practices can be properly paid.
The result is meaningful savings year after year.
This podcast guides clinics in achieving those savings by learning to work smarter with their software. Listen in and discover how mastering functions often overlooked or misunderstood can create savings up to 40% compared to working on paper—or working with an EMR you don’t understand.
You’ll also hear how a savvy EMR purchase can grow revenues, as well as the aspects of software systems are key in making that goal a reality.
