[Update] - Healthcare Technology and the Financial Impact
April 3rd, 2017
[Update to post November 6th, 2015] - As the importance of healthcare technology utilization continues to gain momentum, ambulatory practices are becoming increasingly aware of the financial impact healthcare technology is having on their practice. Physicians and their practices are gearing up to avoid negative reimbursement adjustments in 2019 by navigating through the latest set of MACRA requirements, while federally mandated ICD-10 requirements are still expected to impact practices’ bottom line. With uncertain revenue outcomes, some healthcare practices are hesitant to invest in healthcare technology solutions notorious for raising prices and long term financial commitments, while other practices are already experiencing the increasing financial burden of the healthcare technology solution they chose.
Many systems boast expensive electronic health record and practice management solutions with steep implementation costs and ongoing maintenance and training fees. While these pricing models reflect an outdated way of doing business in the healthcare industry, the high cost to practices continues to serve as a barrier to adoption of technology that can promote quality assurance for coordination of care, ensure HIPAA compliance, protect patient health information, and improve patient safety and quality of care.
Fortunately, cloud-based technology has opened the doors to affordable and effective healthcare technology. Practices no longer have to host bulky systems at their location or pay for expensive updates. Cloud-based technology allows for mass imports of patient data, real-time updates, and live online training, saving practices time and money.RxNT has feature-rich, cloud-based electronic health record, ePrescribing and practice management solutions in the marketplace which are offered under a simple price structure that includes software updates and fixes, initial and ongoing training, and support.
