How to Increase Patient Collections with Paperless Medical Billing

One doctor in California increased sitting A/R by about 40 percent after switching to paperless medical billing and going online.

You do everything else online, why do you still rely on paper to bill your patients? Many medical practices still attempt to manage medical billing in-house, which can lead to potential loss in revenue.

Paperless Medical Billing Results

HIMSS Analytics and Waystar conducted a survey of 900 healthcare financial executives that revealed that almost all healthcare providers still use paper-based medical billing and patient collections.

The survey also found that more than half of the patients surveyed preferred electronical medical billing and patient collections. Patients also said they were more likely to pay medical bills if they had the ability to pay online.

The next generation of patients expect to be able to manage their healthcare services online. If they can meet with their doctor over the phone, why can’t they pay their bill online? It’s time to switch to paperless medical billing.
