According to an ad published on a website of Verona, Wisconsin-based electronic health record colossus Epic Systems Corp. was looking for bright and motivated individuals to join their new billing services team as the company aims at entering the world of medical billing.
The ad depicted that Epic was looking for billers who had good communication and customer service skills. The ad further said that the new candidates should also be experienced with medical terminology and remittance/denial codes along with being knowledgeable about Medicaid, Medicare, and similar other insurance guidelines. They should also have a coding certification or similar background. The applicants were also required to be living within 45 minutes of the Verona campus.
The advert shows that Epic is started its new billing services and people are being quite interested in what this popular software company will bring forward. The published ad further stated, “Our goal is to simplify the payment process by helping Epic organizations with the complexities of submitting claims and posting payments. Attention to detail is vital as you’ll be posting payments and denials; reconciling payment files, claims, and statements; resolving posting errors; and calling payers to follow up on outstanding or unpaid claims.”
Experts are of the view that the ability to offer billing services could prove to be advantageous for Epic’s current efforts to grow its business with small hospitals and physician practices. Being a good software, Epic is popular among many new medical practices and hospitals operating on a budget. People are curious about how much Epic would charge for its billing services.
The company is aiming at similar organizations as it launches its new streamlined EHR versions that it announced earlier this year. For those who are unaware of it, it’s a mid-level “utility” version and features a new system called Sonnet whose scaled-back tools and lower price point could make it very attractive to smaller providers.
“We’re finding that people need different things,” Epic CEO Judy Faulkner told a healthcare news reporting source at HIMSS 17 in February. “If you are a critical access hospital, you don’t need the full Epic.”
Epic spokesperson Meghan Roh was reported to have released the following statement. “With a billing presence across all 50 states, Epic is well-positioned and excited to share our best practices and take on some of the billing work, and associated IT functions, for our Resolute Professional Billing customers,” said.
The service is expected to be launched later this year and is aimed at helping those who are struggling to upscale their billing services, along with keeping a light operational footprint. It could also suit clinicians who are just simply aiming at stepping away from revenue cycle management.
Epic is a really popular software and many people across the US are using it in their medical practices. Experts are of the view that if Epic rolls out its billing services they are going to be an absolute hit among many people. For more information on this stay tuned to out blog.
