Electronic patient care reports (ePCRs) should paint a vivid picture; if it is not documented, it didn’t happen! Documentation is the key to billing the correct levels of service (BLS or ALS) and supporting medical necessity, which in turn creates more revenue for EMS agencies.
In a recent webinar, ZOLL Data Systems implementation specialists, Amanda Lee and Justin Cooley, discussed why complete, timely, and accurate charts are important for billing higher levels of service. Breaking down the divide between EMS departments, they discussed why billers and providers alike should be educated on their expectations surrounding ePCR documentation.
With communication barriers broken, more positive relationships can be fostered to maximize the value of billing software, save time, increase team efficiency, and ultimately lead to a better working environment for all.
Amanda and Justin went on to relay important tips, tricks, and best practices for charting and billing success. They also uncovered configuration issues and potential integration opportunities that are commonly seen with best-in-class billing software.
