Medical electronic billing software is an indispensable tool of any medical billing and coding specialist. Unfortunately due to their rather high costs, not many small medical practices can afford medical electronic billing software programs. This has always been a barrier to the adoption of medical electronic billing software among medical offices and clinics. In fact, a recent study by the American Academy of Family Practitioners Center for Health Information Technology has shown that the average three-year cost for a traditional, non-ASP, integrated medical electronic billing software and practice management system is $68, 371 for a three-physician practice. That means a physician would have to spend $7,600 per year for his or her medical electronic billing software.

In order to address the need for a low-price but feature-satiated medical electronic billing software, vendors from all over are coming up with solutions whose prices are based on the number of simultaneous users of the software than the number of physicians in a practice.

Although the main purpose of medical electronic billing software is to handle patient records, there are many other features available that can help to make your job much easier. One such feature is the ability for multiple users to access the same record at the same time. This allows the administrative staff to update insurance and billing information while the physician meets with the patient. This will help to speed up the overall process and helps to expedite things more quickly.

Medical electronic billing software programs come packed with skins that are meant to help not only medical practitioners but medical billing and coding specialists as well, whether they are effective for a large party specializing in medical position management or as independent, home-based professionals.

Stay focused on the features that are most important to your facility, and always keep your entire staff in mind before choosing the medical electronic billing application that will best suit your needs.
