Do you have flexibility when billing agencies for visits?
Yes, we have a very flexible billing module that allows you to build your own rates for radius billing. You can also build your own inventory items as add-ons to your visits. For example, with radius billing, you can charge a different rate for a patient that is more than 20 miles from your office. You can not only charge the agency an additional fee, but also pay the therapist an additional fee. You can use the system to provide discounts also! With visit add-ons, you can add an item to the visits if you want to charge an additional fee for doing OASIS paperwork or charge a fee for VitalStim Therapy. How about billing by the hour? We can do that also! If you have a therapist working at a hospital or nursing home, you can charge the agency an hourly rate and pay the therapist an hourly rate.
Can I use my own notes or the notes from an agency?
Yes, we provide three different options for patient note capture. First, you can use handwritten notes with our scanning module. We scan the patient note and then convert it to an electronic PDF document. Second, you can use a form fill-able PDF and simply upload the document into our system. This is as easy as uploading a picture into one of the social media sites. Third, use our built-in Visi-Notes. Visi-notes allow you to follow a wizard format that leads the therapist through a series of questions to build the electronic patient note and capture the signatures in real-time.
