WebPT Blog - PT billing
Mar 23, 2011| by Heidi Jannenga PT
Traditionally, PT billing and documentation have been separate processes with their own set of frustrations. The new WebPT integration with Certified Billing Partners (Kareo, BMS) will create a better streamlined workflow between your EMR and billing systems allowing you to run your clinic more efficiently and focus on patient care.
Simplifying clinical and financial processes for PTs has always been our goal at WebPT. Integrated billing is an important piece to that puzzle. The all-in-in one EMR can improve front office staff effiiciency, decrease coding errors, and improve reimbursement. Here are the top five benefits of having an integrated PT EMR and billing system:
1) Front office efficiency
Using a medical billing software or service that is integrated with your EMR means that demographic and billing data will be seamlessly transmitted from your documentation system to your billing company. This eliminates the tedious process of entering patient data into two systems. Once data is entered into WebPT, it transfers directly into the integrated billing system. Even if you are completing your billing in house, there is no need for keying in the charges generated by staff documentation as long as it is entered into WebPT or your EMR. If using an outside billing service, an integrated system eliminates the need to constantly fax every billing sheet saving a significant amount of time, paper and money. Ultimately, this will give therapists the ability to focus on patient care and improve clinic efficiency.

This week we are announcing the availability of our integration between WebPT EMR and the BMS third-party billing service. WebPT has developed both product integration and a business partnership with BMS to deliver a complete solution that enables physical therapists to efficiently manage the entire clinical and financial workflow of their clinics.
WebPT Billing Integration
BMS is one of the first two WebPT Certified Billing Integration Partners. The WebPT team has been working with BMS to develop a seamless integration between the WebPT EMR and the BMS software system. Their industry knowledge on the issues and concerns facing the billing departments of Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Language Pathologists is second to none. BMS became the obvious choice as a comprehensive third-party billing option we are proud to offer to our members.
