What Is Medical Billing
Medical billing refers to the transactional aspect of healthcare provision and can be best summarised as the relationship between 3 different groups of people: healthcare providers like doctors and clinics, healthcare recipients (patients), and payers. This three-way relationship is pretty clear-cut when the payer is an insurance company, but not so straightforward in the self-pay market where you as the practitioner don't want to reduce the doctor-patient relationship to a transaction.
One of the best ways to both ensure that you get paid appropriately for your work and to remove yourself from any financial transaction is to use practice management software that automatically generates your billing and invoice documents as you record your activity with each patient.
Medesk can automatically generate your billing and invoice documents as you record your activity with each patient.

Each patient records shows the sum of the invoices issued and the patient’s current balance. This allows you to offer additional services if there is enough money on the account. It also helps you keep track of any outstanding debts.
You have the option to limit access to invoicing to only those people in your clinic who need it. For example, many clinicians don’t want to be distracting by billing so you could limit this feature to your admin team.
Use a list of fully customisable tags to categorise different aspects of your invoices. For example, you can tag insurance-related items, additional services and so on. Of course, this allows you to build up complex reports that’ll help you find out all sorts of interesting and useful things about your clinic’s business operations.
We can customise our approach to billing depending on your exact requirements!
