The pressures associated with heavy patient inflow, patient scheduling, medical emergencies, and general administration makes it difficult for healthcare practices to give patient care and back office tasks the level of dedication they demand. Added to this is the need to conform to standards such as the HIPAA 5010, ICD10 and EHR. Many healthcare practices find themselves behind on the implementation part as well as on paperwork, and healthcare suffers as a consequence. The best thing to do in such a situation is to outsource back office tasks. Outsourced physician billing services are much more affordable than in-house medical billing.
