Billing Integration with Specialization

You Deserve Excellence in EMR and Billing Integration

There is a fundamental difference between software designed for doctors (EMR/EHR) and software designed for medical billing (PM). No single company can offer excellence in each of these diverse and constantly evolving fields. Most EHR companies today are actually billing companies in disguise that are selling templates. Templates will hurt your quality medicine.

This is why Praxis has focused exclusively on developing Praxis EMR and integrating seamlessly to the billing of your choice. In fact, product specialization over two decades is what has made Praxis EMR so good. It would be straight-forward for Praxis to also offer "Praxis EMR Billing", and make additional revenues selling "integration". However, "integration" from a single company short changes you.

Instead of forcing you into a billing solution, Praxis EMR integrates with the best medical billing systems in the country. With Praxis you get billing integration without sacrificing the quality that only a specialist can deliver. Your clinic deserves the best of both worlds: billing-PM integration with EMR specialization.


Praxis Billing Integration

Praxis EMR connects seamlessly with the industry's best billing partners.

With an Praxis EMR billing interface, you get:

  • One single 800 number for customer support, which you expect.
  • Integration together with specialization, which you deserve.
  • Increased Revenues only specialist billing offers.
  • The flexibility to trade-up or change your integrated billing as you grow.
  • Praxis EMR, the only Template-Free EMR, and the #1 rated EMR in the country.

Important: If your clinic's billing system works well for you, there is absolutely no reason to change it. Why go through the headache of selecting, implementing, and adapting to a new billing service all over again? And, why put your bottom line at risk?

With Praxis EMR, you won't have to.


The Myths and Mistruths of EMR/Billing Package Deals

Vendors of bundled EMR/billing software make false claims in order to sell their package deals that make them more money at your expense. We would like to take a moment to debunk these mistruths.

In fact, a package deal will cost you more money in the long run for several reasons. First, the billing software will not be personalized to meet your specific billing needs; instead, you will be forced to adapt to its cookie-cutter approach. Second, say goodbye to the dedication and personal touch of a billing specialist; you will become just one more medical practice that will be forced to conform to a uniform billing standard. And, last but not least, once you realize you've made a mistake, you will discover that switching to another alternative will cost you dearly; in effect, the vendor will have you locked in forever.
Be careful. The vendor is trying to sell you a substandard product that you would never even consider on its own merits. If you don't believe this sort of thing actually happens, take a look at this post in EMR Update: "This post is a warning about how IT companies with an established customer base can tack some code onto its existing accounting software, and call it an EMR, get it certified, and sell it to EMR naive hospital administrators who want to deal with only 1 vendor. Without a paper chart, or some other way to record patient information gathered outside of an office visit, I find this EMR to be unsafe for doctors and patients, and grossly inefficient at documenting patient care."

Now imagine the inverse situation: An EMR company that is focused on the needs of a doctor cobbling together a billing solution. Do you really think that such a solution could meet the needs of a medical billing specialist? Further, the federal government's Meaningful Use program has mandated the use of HL7 standards, which enables interoperability between all EMR and billing systems. Insist on Praxis Billing Integration and see how quickly vendors drop this argument to salvage at least part of their sale. And, Praxis coordinates all updates with your billing and labs so you receive tightly integrated upgrades.
All billing companies and products use some form of clearinghouse. Some put their brand name on the clearinghouse and mark up the service by 20%. Please call us and we'll show you how a Praxis Integrated Partner will save you 8-10% guaranteed. We'll also help you choose the best clearinghouse for your personal needs. No package deal offers you this flexibility and discounted pricing.

Bottom Line: You deserve the best EMR for your practice needs, integrated with a billing system that makes you the most money. Praxis EMR is the only EMR that offers you this flexibility. Do not be fooled by "integrated" marketing. Integrated EHR-PM products do not improve your Medical Quality, enable Better Documentation or lead to Higher Profitability in your medical practice. Only Praxis EMR enables these key benefits.

Please contact us for an expert billing consultation.


Praxis Billing Integration

As part of the Praxis EMR guarantee, we promise all Praxis clients that we will never offer billing services and put EMR clinical quality at risk. No one company can offer you excellence in both fields. Our resources will always remain dedicated to the research and development of the best Electronic Medical Record in the world.

The integration of specialized software is again becoming the industry standard. For an excellent article on the subject, see the Jul/Aug 2009 issue of Family Practice Management, the monthly newsletter of the American Academy of Family Physicians.


Vertically integrated, top-tier companies such as Allscripts, GE Centricity and NextGen would like to continue to sell comprehensive EHRs to their best customers, who will pay their highest prices at maximum profit margins, often greater than 50 percent. But they are struggling to add value fast enough and at a price individual practices can afford. The proof is seen in examples throughout the Nutting Report and in countless practices across the country as users try to get vertically integrated vendors to respond quickly to their functionality needs but find the workarounds and awkward installations maddeningly frustrating."

Family Practice Management, Jul/Aug 2009, p. 9.

Brickell Research (Plastic Surgery Experts)

Founded in 1991, Brickell Research pioneered Microsoft Windows-based practice managment software. Over the twenty years since, we have been a leading provider of innovative, efficiency-focused, and superbly-supported healthcare IT solutions for practice management, billing, scheduling, and clinical recordkeeping.

More than software, the company pioneered an approach to selling and servicing solutions that is unparalleled in its forthrightness and customer-friendliness. One prominent industry consultant once said that it's easier to be our customer than it is to become our customer. We feel that is as it should be. As many providers have learned the hard way, most vendors are far quicker to accept an order than they are to educate customers, learn about their needs, and take care of them in the long-term. For twenty years, our goal has been to put the financial and operational health of providers first. We look forward to continuing to expand the ways we can bring practices value and efficiency in the decades to come.

MOMS-AT

Founded in 1987 by Gerald Furst, DataTel Solutions, Inc. has been providing quality Medical Office software products for over 20 years.

DataTel's flagship product is known as MOMS or Medical Office Management System. The first generation began as MOMS 1.0 for DOS/Unix and was grandfathered at version 1.9 in 2005. The Advanced Technology (MOMS AT) was first released in 2003. The versatile Practice Management Software is designed to accommodate a range of medical service providers from solo practitioners, multi-doctor/facility/specialty practices, and billing services. The goal is to provide quality software at a reasonable price.

The next generation of the MOMS product line will feature advanced EHR functionality in a tightly integrated package. The focus of the product is to provide electronic chart documentation functions with efficient claims management technology. Rather than turn the existing MOMS AT Practice Management into an EHR product, DataTel has chosen to implement a completely new design based on lessons learned from the existing MOMS AT Practice Management software. The result is an EHR and Practice Management product that not only assists physicians in meeting regulatory guidelines, but also helps to maximize reimbursement for services rendered.
