Have you Chosen the Right Software for Your Dental Billing?

January 30, 2014

Dental billing software can be a huge investment for dental practitioners. Even though it is a onetime investment, it is essential to make the right choice in buying effective, fast and affordable software.

Research is extremely important when buying dental medical billing software. It should be:

  • Easy to learn- if the software of your choice is hard to learn, your employees might ask you to conduct training sessions for learning how to use it. This will require more investment of time and money
  • Easy to access- dentists can get phone calls after hours so, if the dental software is not easy to access you will face trouble in accessing patient accounts on your system

Benefits of dental medical billing software:

Quality dental billing software will make the process of claim submission easier. Compared to the “old fashioned way”, running your finances with the latest dental billing software will get you paid on time. The software will record the process from a patient’s first visit through all the visits and diagnose thereafter.

Usage of dental billing software will reduce the complications of paperwork. Since the billing process will be simple and automated, you won’t have to do anything manually, leaving you sufficient time to attend patients. Technology will ease work-pressure for your staff and increase their productivity.

Good quality dental medical billing software should cover the following:

  • Electronic claims
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Claim tracking
  • Flexible reporting
  • Automatic billing paperwork for patients
  • Patient eligibility
  • Updated patient details
  • Auditable history of a visit
  • Confidentiality
  • Ability to interact with third party software

Dental billing software needs to be secure and HIPAA compliant so that the healthcare provider’s efficiency gets maximized. It should be easy to use so that the in-house staff can access in-depth reports related to claims, patient payments and other information without difficulties.

Other benefits of quality dental billing software are ease in patient complaint registration, recording of documentation on a real time basis, patient appointment scheduling, and generation of medical reports and so on.

Even after considering the benefits of choosing the right software for dental billing, many small practices lack the money to buy one. Even if they manage to buy the software, there isn’t sufficient time to learn and train the in-house staff for using the software.
